My mercedes C200 2008 model diesel is smoking at idling real black smoke and sometimes cuts off on it's own. It chews a lot of fuel since. what could be the problem?


Probably one or more fuel injector is dribbling or sticking - certainly that would be the best place to begin looking.

Mercedes c200 wont start lots of new parts white smoke comes out but says low pressure diesel rail replaced injector rail and two injector switches still wont start


WHITE SMOKE occurs when raw diesel comes through the exhaust completely intact and unburned. Some causes of this include
  • Faulty or damaged injectors
  • Incorrect injection timing (could be a worn timing gear or damaged crankshaft keyway).
  • Low cylinder compression (eg caused by leaking or broken valves, piston ring sticking, cylinder and/or ring wear, or cylinder glaze)

Preglow light turned on during driving


If there is a problem with any electrical sensors,switches,motors in and on the engine anylon slight fault can bring the glowplug light on. I would suggest that you take to a independent Mercedes specialist and have the code read most fault are logged.

Looking for more Power from my 300CD Diesel engine


Those old engines were made to last - compare the weight of the motor to one of similar capacity nowadays; the old ones were made of cast iron which is quite heavy, the newer ones like the C270CDi Mercedes motor weighs about 30-40%less due to aluminium parts. Longevity suffers, but you need less power to drive the engine, giving you more power to drive the car. Furthermore, the common rail injection used nowadays are a lot more flexible and powerful, due to the fact that the exact amount of diesel needed per cylinder stroke is injected, whereas the old system injected a fixed amount per stroke, whether you are doing 20mph or 80mph. So, it overfuels at low revs and underfuels at higher revs. To prevent it from burning too lean the engine has a rev limit, roughly where the mixture is running at "100%" effectivity. The newer motors use computers to make the decisions based on 83452 different inputs, the older ones just measured the diesel needed and the air supplied.

So, the sad news is that the only way to get the car to perform a lot better is to put in a new moter eg. C270CDi, or put in a REAL motor like a 350Chevy :-D but leave the 300D badge on and see the other guys $h@ their pants when this "diesel" smokes them!

EPC light on my dashboard


Hi Shamiza, I have a Mercedes Diesel Motorhome and I use Bio Diesel, if I don't dilute the fuel with regular diesel a red light comes on EDC (Electronic Diesel Control) I then go into limp mode no more than3,500 rpm this is in case I do damage to high pressure pump. So I am presuming your vehicle is Petrol and possibly requires a service of sorts to the fuel system? Electronic Petrol Control??
It is just a thought and if it were me I would be knocking my Vw dealership for further advice.
I hope this helps

EPC FAULT ON A MERCEDES S320 CD1 (2003)


There can be an array of problems that can illuminate the EPC lamp on S-Class 220. A few of the most common faults with these are : HFM sensor, turbo or blocked cats. the best way to check the cats are the remove them and tap them on the ground and if dust falls out then the cats are damaged, if OK, you may have to plug into a diagnostic machine.
let me know how you get on,
