HOW TO CHANGE THE SUPERCHARGER OIL ON A GM 3800 SERIES II V6
just a quick instructional video of how to properly change the Supercharger oil on your 3800... some people say
just to re-top off your Supercharger,
but many owners as well as a good number of master mechanics ive talked to
about it that worked on these cars, they say to full out replace it by
draining it and putting new oil in, simply because if you know anything
about oil youd know that it breaks down over time especially because of
heat and friction. new oil handles it better and keeps it properly
lubricated and cooler temperature. old oil will be dirty, maybe burned,
and possibly ineffective if broken down enough over time. which method you
trust is up to you, im not saying either method is right or wrong, this one
just makes more sense to me, therefore thats the one i do on my car so we
made the instructional video for this, if you choose simply to top off your
oil, do all the same steps just dont empty the old oil first.

2001 Mercedes Benz SLK 230 noises
I am looking for your opinion regarding what can be the sources of these
The main concern - there is a steady medium pitched rattling noise that is
possibly coming from the engine.
Towards the end as i close the door, inside there is a hum that sounds like
its coming from the back window but in the trunk i dont hear it as much.
any opinions will be appreciated!

Mercedes Benz SLK 32 AMG Part 1 / 2
The R170-platform SLK 230 Kompressor was introduced in 1997 for model year
1998 to compete with the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z3. Setting it apart was
its folding hardtop, though its additional weight detracting from the
performance of the 185 hp 2.3 L supercharged I4 engine and automatic
transmission. The SLK was on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1997.
A 5-speed manual transmission was added for 1999 along with the 215 hp 3.2
L V6 and 6-speed manual transmission in the 2001 SLK 320.
An AMG model was added in 2001, with a 354 hp (264 kW) supercharged version
of the 3.2 L V6. This SLK 32 AMG was the best-performing SLK ever, and was
a direct rival of the BMW M Roadster and Porsche Boxster S. It is only
offered with automatic transmission. The SLK AMG engine is also hand built.
Not all Mercedes SLKs were built in Bremen, Germany, the SLK 320 being
built in South Africa. The very first R170 Mercedes SLK was completed on
January 29, 1997 and last on April 7, 2004.
