Asked by jamel_lytle Mar 12, 2012 at 12:43 PM about the 2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R500 4dr Wagon AWD

Question type: General

Hello everyone, When I start the car, I let it idle down (takes about 1 mins to 2mins or less) then I drive
it. I noticed that when I do this, the car seems to make a loud noise as if she's annoyed and yelling at
me(SMILES). When I putter and tinker in the car for 4 mins or so with the kids and then take off, it's not
as loud. Does this sound like something I should get checked out or should I idle longer? This is my 1st
Benz so for give my ignorance.
Also, my sensors go red when I press the brakes occasionally and make the loud beep sound after it
rains. What is that about?
I appreciate your advice and opinions in advance.
man I like this website :)

Well actually before you drive off, the car has to be warm or perfect temp to function at its best, but obviously no one will wait for that long so it is actually not recommended to have large rpm when driving on cold engine. You can ask dealership machenics about it and they will tell u that it is normal for it to be loud. And about sencors, Im not sure about but my guess would be, it is telling to check the break compartments because maybe something needs to be replaced or damaged.
