HELP with my new 2006 E350
Good Day to all. I am new to this site and this is my first MB, and E350.
When I test drove the car I did not pay attention to the "sounds" of the engine. When sitting in the car at idle I am hearing "knocking", "lifters", "valves"...almost sounds like a mini diesel is running. But when driving the car you can hear it... its only when sitting at a light or in park when rpms are low.
I called the dealer and he said its normal, that i need to "break" the engine in...
Well , Its been almost 500 miles and I am confused and am scared to take it in for the dealer to see...
The car drives great... although i do feel the down shift in the gears when sloweing down... slightly ubrupt in that down to second to first move.. there is a little jerk.
other than that.. car ride is smooth.
any adivce please??? is it just the way this engine is supposed to sound?
thank you all much,
PS>..the car is black on black...advice on cleaning exterior would be appreciated too...
