Hello, just picked up a 2003 108CDI Vito. 130,000 Km on the clock
I'm a little concerned with the time it takes to start (maybe 5 seconds - my 2007 Vito takes about 3). It does this consistently and the timing doesn't seem to change much on whether it's cold, warm, been running, first start of the day, or straight after an hour drive.
But more to the point, when it starts I notice it spits out a bit of black liquid from the exhaust. I'm guessing it's oil, smells a little like burnt oil but I can't say for sure that it isn't fuel.. I did try to ignite some with a lighter
but that didn't happen so it seems more like oil at this stage
I've read endless topics of black death and thankfully haven't seen mention of liquid spitting from exhaust yet, so that's good I guess
It doesn't happen continuously either, just on start it seems
