G&G Autohaus on S. Decatur took care of me today. I had my AC checked and recharged there with R134a. Ice cold now. Well not as cold as when its with R12 but cooler than before. Only had .87lbs of freon in system when they checked. Car needed 1.7lbs of R134a. R12 would require 2.2lbs but was told R134a expands differently than R12. These guys knew what they were doing. No bs. Everyone there were former Fletcher Jones Mercedes techs except the owner. Total out the door was $123.54 with tax.
Oil change with G&G Autohaus for Total Quartz brand 20w50 mineral oil is $53 bucks. Mobil 1 full synthetic is $90 bucks. They did not recommend synthetic for my 1993 190E 2.6 engine. Said it would be too thin and cause some problems and even smoking because it gets past the piston rings. Newer cars they recommend Mobil 1 full synthetic.
Tried calling Benz Doctor...no one answered the cell phone. Tried twice! Called the office number and it said that my number does not match a local number. It was weird.
Called Sig of Sig's Autohaus but he was swamped with work and did not have time. Having triple digits inside my car was not fun so I could not wait. Sig is still available by appointment only 702-239-9953. Even the guys at G&G Autohaus said Sig is a great guy and mechanic. They were surprised to hear he was still in business after he retired.
There is one rule...there are no rules!
