When cold starts but dies.to start, peddle to floor, rev a minute then it idles but at times dies when accelerating from a stop. Raw gas smell present and puff of blue smoke when it starts.


have you checked the cylinder compressions as backfire and blue smoke can be a symptom of low compression , either rings or valve seats but would need a dropdown test to be sure

Car lost power uphill with air on and was hard to start once. blue exhaust smoke when reved up otherwise runs good


Blue smoke is not good!! Piston rings are bad or valves. On a Mercedes it will cost you more than the car is worth at this point. Unless you have a sentimental attachment to the car and really really want to keep it., I would get rid of it. 123,000 mile is a great life for a 1989.

My Range Rover 2.7 diesel starts but then chugs on a very low idle, no throttle response and black smoke, what could be wrong?


i'd suggest getting the cylinder compressions checked , black smoke indicates burning oil so could be piston rings , also that would explain lack of throttle response and low revs

High to low rpms


There may be a problem with the idle air control circuit. Make sure that the throttle body and idle air passages are clean. If not, you may have to do a throttle body cleaning on it. You can follow the directions on the can, but you will have to make sure that you give it a few shots with the throttle plate closed, so that the cleaner can get into the idle air passages. Also, make sure that there are no vacuum leaks and there is not any un-metered air that is entering into the intake. If the exhaust is blowing out and blue smoke, then the piston rings may be worn or stuck and the combustion chamber all carbon built up. If it blows out black smoke, then it's running too rich.

1998, gmc,K2500, 5.7l, 250,000km, starts good but idle is very rough and lots of black smoke, lots of power, runs good, but again, lots of black smoke. After you run the truck for awhile, idle is good, but...


A bad coolant temp sensor for the ECM will cause that problem ... they are cheap and easy to replace. One other possibility is a piece of carbon stuck in the EGR causing an internal vacuum leak ..
Good luck.

Smoking at higher rpms


Hi, its time for a ring set job in this vehicle. the blue smoke is a sign of major oil consumption due to bad piston rings. you also have faulty valve seals as well. this is deep engine repair and it will be costly.

If you cant do this job soon, be sure to watch the oil consumption by checking the level regularly and, monitor the oil pressure as well.
