Silver Star Imports Tech Session

Fifteen members of the Central Oklahoma Section joined Michael Rush for a tour of his shop and to hear his advice on maintenance and repair of our cars.  He provided general guidance on how to keep our cars running smoothly, including specific recommendations on use of gas containing ethanol in older Mercedes engines and how to address starting problems in cars with diesel engines during very cold weather.  Michael also gave a presentation on how engine braking affects a cars stopping abilities on slippery roadways.

 

Although Silver Star Imports maintains and repairs Mercedes-Benz models of all ages, classics to the newest high technology models, Michael prefers to work on the older models. 

 

One of the highlights on the shop tour was a chance to inspect a 1966 Citroen 2CV that was in for repairs.  It certainly is an interesting and unusual car that is rarely seen in the Oklahoma City area.
