Vehicle had 17,800 miles on it when I purchased it about 2 months ago. The noise was present then as well. Hot or cold engine at idle....
As in the past with all of my other vehicles I do the general maintenance.
Once I got it home I drained the oil and ran penzoil through it for about 100 miles. Then I drained that and put in Amsoil 5/40 and a new filter. Now I am at 19,700 miles.
Since this is am AMG engine (not just a modded MB engine) I would appreciate any other ML 63 owners thoughts/experiences.
This thing makes all kinds of noises with all of the systems installed. So, I expect this is probably nothing to be concerned about.
