About Mercedes-Benz SLK230
Mercedes-Benz SLK230 (R170) made its debut for the 1998 model year when the SLK-Class was in its first generation. It was offered in only one body style, 2-door roadster and came in only one trim level. But SLK230 was also available for the SLK230 Kompressor Mille Miglia Edition 1997, SLK230 Limited Edition, which was only available with an "Obsidian Black" exterior, and Oyster or Charcoal (black) interior; SLK230 Designo Copper and the SLK230 Kompressor Final Edition. "SLK" in its name stands for Sportlich (Sporty), Leicht (Light) and Kurz (Compact). Built based on the W202 C-Class platform, sharing many drivetrain and chassis components, SLK230 had the identical wheelbase of the 190SL and 300SL. Equipped with 17-inch wheels, napa leather trim for the sport seats and roll bar, chrome accents around the windows and a color-keyed front grille and rear spoiler, SLK230 had been powered by a 2.3 L supercharged straight-four engine rated at 190-194 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque and power was sent through either a 6-speed manual or an optional 5-speed 5G-Tronic automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
First, according to the reliable car repair statistics site repairpal.com, the engine failure is not the worse problem on Mercedes-Benz SLK230, but the cooling system failure accompanying with the engine failure. Most SLK230 drivers understand the seriousness of the engine failure, but they do not realize the cooling system could be the cause of the engine failure. Generally speaking, when the cooling system starts to leak coolants or has inadequate coolants, the engine will keep overheating and stay at a high operating temperature, which is harmful to its performance. Soon, you will get a suffered-performance engine that will misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues including hard starting or inability to start. Finally, you will also notice a decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy. You are advised to inspect the SLK230 water pump, intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, coolant reservoir, cooling hose, oil filter, air filter, engine control module and valve cover gasket as soon as the Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light come on.
Second, for Mercedes-Benz SLK230 drivers, another disaster on the vehicle is the braking failure. Nearly every driver knows the importance of a well-functioning braking system, which is the guarantee of a safe ride. However, based on SLK230 drivers' experience, after a while of driving, the brakes will become noisy and poorly responded, the brake pedal pulsates heavily when being depressed, the braking fluids leak on the ground, the rear brakes get locked up on the wet surface, the brake rotors are covered by the score marks, the parking brake cable is unable to hold the car properly and eventually both Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light are activated. Normally, these symptoms are caused by the SLK230 brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable.
