Hi, welcome to Just Answer. What year and model is your Mercedes?

2002 E 320

It has a 6 cycl engine
Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.
Ok, and how did you find that it needed service 8? Normally on a 2002 it will tell you that it needs either an A or a B service. Are you sure it doesn't say Service B is due?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well, it looks like an 8 to me and to others who have noticed it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think it is just normal service .... oil, fluid levels etc. In a year I have driven the car less than 3,000 miles.
Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.
Ok, what can I help you with. Do you want me to tell you what needs to be done for a B service?

Hi, I'm just following up with you on the Mercedes. Do you still need help with this?
