Your Mercedes – Lexus requires plenty of clean fuel to run. If your fuel contains contaminants, your fuel injectors will eventually become clogged up. When this happens, your Mercedes – Lexus engine may not get the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure to run at peak performance. This hurts gas mileage and performance as you drive around Yorba Linda. It can also lead to the buildup of harmful deposits on valves and in the combustion chamber.
That’s why all vehicles, including Mercedes – Lexuss, come equipped with a fuel filter somewhere between the engine and the fuel tank. The job of the filter is to clean out little pieces of dirt and contamination. The filter captures the contaminants and keeps them out of the fuel stream. Of course, like all filters, it will eventually get clogged up and need to be replaced at Exclusive Motors in Placentia .
If your fuel filter is clogged, the Mercedes – Lexus engine can’t get all the fuel it needs, and it may sputter at high speeds or quick acceleration. Many fuel filters have a bypass valve that will allow unfiltered fuel through when they are clogged. This keeps your Mercedes – Lexus engine running, but doesn’t protect it from detrimental contaminated fuel.
Placentia auto owners may find that they need to change their fuel filter at Exclusive Motors more frequently as their Mercedes – Lexus ages. Over the years, additional sediment and detrimental rust accumulates in the fuel tank and can be drawn into the fuel system. Your fuel filter stands guard at the gates to your engine to protect costly parts and to maintain performance and fuel efficiency.
One thing all Placentia drivers can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Exclusive Motors can help maintain your battery.
Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very detrimental to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined.

These days many people in the Yorba Linda area are really committed to making their cars last a long time. First thing: you’ve got to start with what you’ve got. It’d be ideal if people started with a brand new car, never missed a scheduled service item, paid attention to the severe service maintenance schedule and had regular inspections. But if you’ve had the vehicle for a while, or bought it used, its maintenance history is what it is; and that’s where you start.
Go through the maintenance schedule for your Mercedes – Lexus and see what’s been done and when. Have your Placentia service advisor at Exclusive Motors do an inspection and come up with a list of stuff that needs to be done. Review the list and prioritize the work, talk about budget and make a plan to get caught up.
Making a plan is so important. Suppose you go in for an oil change and learn you need your cooling system serviced, a transmission service and are coming up on a timing belt replacement in the next 5,000 miles. You might be pretty overwhelmed.
To make it even more stressful, these are all very important systems that are expensive to repair if there’s a failure. In consultation with your Placentia service advisor, you might decide to take care of the transmission on this visit, set an appointment for the cooling system service next month and get an estimate for the timing belt replacement so you’ll be prepared for it in a few months.
Having a plan for taking care of these important services will set your mind at ease.
