    I have the same problem and it would seem that it's a common problem with the Mercedes Vito diesel. The injectors aren't seating properly and unburnt fuel is being pushed out from around the injectors. This could be the reason for the smoking which gets worse the hotter the engine gets. If it's been happening for a long time you'll see a hard black deposit on the top of the head.

The first thing that need to be done here is to have the fault code(s) read that are recorded in the computer's memory (PCM) when this happens. Do not keep driving the car or you will damage the engine and/or the transmission.

More likely than not, you have the famous broken solder joint(s) at the coil inside the FOB...if that is fine and all solder joints look fine , then you had best get MB, or a good Mercedes Independant garage, to check the EIS and make sure it sees the key
