have an 05 cdi (320) and just curious about a few "noises". I bought the car and sold my faithful 230e for mileage reasons. the new ride is a stellar car. however, i am only familiar with the diesel noises for the 02 jetta tdi i used to have.
so, the question i have is, at start-up, the engine makes a sort of groaning noise from the lf of the motor at start-up. not very disconcerting on balance, but an obvious noise; is this a normal thing? if so, please tell me what it is. the car runs and drives-out just fine otherwise and in fact produces about 35mpg on average...yay me since that is why i bought it...fwiw, it has about 84k on the clock and was totally serviced by mb at 74k with no faults found.
since i am new to the mb cdi technology, i'm throwing out to the list for some sage words. can't give the car back, but would like to fix something if it needs fixing.
thank for any words of wisdom...love the car otherwise and it is dreamboat compared to my 83 e class <smile>
