Hi

thanks in advance







Hi

joined this forum because I am looking for advice,
we have a mercedes 220 diesel sport year 2000,
problems that have cropped up are

oil light coming on sometimes
car sounding like a tractor sometimes (goes for days running ok) someimes the car actually shudders when just started.
also rattling noise appears when it is running slow i.e approaching junctions, or coming to a stop.
car feeling as though it going to stall when approaching traffic lights or slow moving,

husband decided to put foo down on motorway and loads of
black soot like dust came out exhaust,

anyone any ideas ?
thanks in advance

Hi.

Do you have the service history
on the car?
Was the car bought new by you/hubby?


First area where I would look is the
injector for the cylinder that isn't
always firing.

If it is OK, then the next thing is
the pump itself.
Checking the flow of fuel per injector line.

It is also a good idea to change the
glow plugs, although this is not related to
the not-firing of the cyl.


Louis.

Hi

thanks for the reply, another update is that the garage is checking the injectors tonight as he thinks that is defo the problem, (fingers crossed) we have bought the car second hand, all service history is there, and it had a service just before we bought the car, but the problems I listed in posting have been there since we bought the car.

again thanks for reply
