When your Mercedes-Benz SL550 left the factory, it was destined for a driver who wants European styling in their automobile. Anyone who operates a Mercedes-Benz knows that when it comes to maintaining their car, truck, or SUV only the most superior replacement parts will do. Make no mistake, you didn't buy your SL550 unless you knew that you wanted long-lasting quality and dependability both rolled up into one car, truck, or SUV. While it may not be difficult to locate replacement parts for Mercedes-Benz vehicles, these days only the highest quality are required to maintain your car or truck.
One problem with old engines is their tendency to burn oil; likely because the valve guides are failing. Your Mercedes-Benz SL550 needs an engine overhaul, and that means replacing the valve guides in your cylinder head. They are made from bronze or steel, and keep the valves located in a tight spot so they can open and close reliably. Over time, your Mercedes-Benz SL550 valve guides will eventually wear thin and your engine oil will begin to infiltrate the combustion chamber; robbing the rest of your engine of lubrication and contributing to ignition knocking.
Don't let a broken Valve Guide bring about the demise of your car, truck, or SUV, and don't gamble with its condition by installing anything but the best repair parts.
