Rough Idle After Sitting for Few Days
I have noticed that after our C230 sits for a couple of days without being started say from Friday afternoon until Monday morning upon start up the car seems to idle a little rough and almost feels like it has a miss. Also, there is a gurguling sound coming out of the exhaust. After about 10 or 15 seconds everything smooths out and runs fine. Is this common with other 2006 C230's? Before i got alarmed I wanted to check. I did a seach but didn't find anything specifically the same. I have also noticed that on start up from an overnight sit, the engine makes a noise alsmost like a "Knock" for about 2 seconds. I figure that is just from the oil being in the pan and the engine being cold.
Anyone experience anything similar?
