Customer Question
My check engine light...

My check engine light just came on. The engine sounds like it's working really hard. When I turn the wheel, it's hard to turn and it makes a sound.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

ON

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

2010 GLK 350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I made sure the gas cap is tight.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it.

if your steering is hard to turn you need to shut the engine off and make sure the belt is still attached to the pulleys.

as for the check engine light, we would need a code scanner to read the codes and see what the possibilities are , there are literally a thousand codes that can show lol.

you can get the codes read from an autozone for free although we might need a better scanner than they have to offer.

Let me know what I can do to help and I surely will.
