First problem for my new to me w115 240d. i have had a couple of days of great economical but very slow motoring. but today the front suspension and steering started making noise. when i turn the wheel whether while moving or at a standstill or when i go over a bump or pot hole my car makes a noise as if something is dry. like an old door hinge opening or shutting. the type of noise that the swinging doors in a saloon in an american western movie or a horror movie always seem to make. any ideas of what it could be?
also in my opinion the car smokes alot. its particularly noticeable in my rear view mirror at night in the headlights of cars behind me. do 240 diesels smoke alot? i dont have experience with old diesel cars and cannot compare to any other cars i have owned.

Have you checked the steering fluid level?
