International Motors was able to get my 2015 Maserati in for its service so I could avoid having to take it to Ontario to the dealer. They had all of the necessary items recommended at that service interval and were able to complete everything within 1 day.

International Motors is the best in the valley. Thorough, comprehensive and fair. Sean and his team keep our elderly cars running like new (2003 Audi S8 & 2005 Mini Cooper S Convertible). No price gouging, simply exceptional/quality service.

Message From the Shop
The automobiles we specialize in are among the most sophisticated computer controlled cars on the planet. International Motors (IM) has all of the necessary factory tools and diagnostic computers to communicate with these complex systems to properly and accurately discover the problems. We invest tens-of-thousands of dollars a year in equipment, software and training to provide the information you expect from a dealer with personal service you likely won't get. Owned and operated by Sean Zarrinkouh, a Bosch Master Technician (BSCS), with a staff of ASE/Bosch Master Certified Technicians who love what they do. This passion, supported by continual training means that everything that can be done will be done as quickly, correctly and as reasonably as possible. For people who own older model cars that the dealers seem to not be interested in or even trained to deal with, IM is like water in the desert. BMW Audi Mercedes Benz Mini Jaguar Land Rover.

Questions Answered by International Motors
Can You Recommend A Repair Shop Near 92240 That Will Properly Diagnose And Repai on 2004 Mercedes-Benz E320
Hi There
If SBC is the problem and has to be replaced, then the repair facility needs to use Mercedes Tester to finish the job.
Other than the Mercedes dealer, International Motors in Cathedral City has the proper factory equipment to finish the job.

Fuel Gauge Stopped Working Whats The Cause Of It Stopping Just Like That on 2002 Mercedes-Benz C320

How To Reset Tire Psi Warning Light All Tires Good On Psi. Is There A Reset Button? on 2009 Toyota Corolla
It can only be rest by TPMS tool through the sixteen pin diagnostic connector.
Rear Disc Brakes on 2006 BMW 325i
You would need to reset and service function using BMW factory tester such as GT1 or Autologic to 100% after the repair.

Poor A/C on 1994 Mercedes-Benz E320
For an accurate answer I would need to know the hi and low pressure of the a/c system. It seems that you have low refregerant in the system.
