Hi, I was a happy owner till first oil change...
Hi everyone. Sorry for my English, I needed learn Russian as second language when I went to elementary and secondary school.
I'm a bit nuts using my MB E200 W210 over a year long without any problem. I hope somebody is out there, who can explain what happened.
So the story. I brought our favorite car for a simple oil change last weekend to a car mechanics. He changed oil, oil filter and air filter as well. On the first day I have no any issue exempt the small ticking noise at idle as usually till warm up. Back to home as I expected, the engine almost inaudible. Next day morning have no problem till I stopped at local grocery for a few minutes. From this time I have more problems. What I noticed, starting after a "long" time have no any issue. If I have to stop the engine for 10 minutes or 1 hour come out some fault, as:
1., engine won't start, just turn a bit and stop. Attempt to more time, engine start, but the idle very uneven, until I start rolling (I feel so like a cylinder has misfire), but apart of difficult start have no trouble after.
2., engine start as usually, but after a few 100m the exhaust has big-big blue smoke for a while only! After a km or so, disappear so quickly like someone switched out and nothing thereafter.
I'm a bit confused right now. I looked around on the net and found as potentially can cause overfilling. My dipstick showing oil level on the top of plastic top level indicator. Can put pictures up if it's helps.
Thanks for any help in advance.
