Am new and hope to be able to contribute and seek clarifications.
First query, I own a 2013 E300 BE (Model 212 I believe). Only 1,200km on the clock so far..
I noticed that there is a fluttering/clanking sound from morning cold starts for about 2-5 seconds and it goes away after that. Sounds very metalic and only upon cold starts. If I start it during the daytime after driving to work i.e. lunch time, it is hardly noticeable.
Any idea if this is normal?
I asked the local dealer and he informed me that this was a normal working noise of the V6 engine...Am not too sure about it.
Advance thanks for your views.
