Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi there:EPC - Electronic Power Control
If its like some other models is doesnt have a traditional accelerator, its drive by wire. Possibly pumping the pedal as you try to start is causing that. First off check for air getting into the fuel line.
Hope this helps.

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,

Unless there are warning lights indicating some sort of mechanical malfunction I would not worry about this. If this were a gasoline engine it would be disconcerting. Diesels on the other hand are more prone to producing soot, and in recent years have come under attack for this reason. The reason this happens is that when you are accelerating hard you are forcing more fuel to be burned in each firing cycle. Soot is simply the product of inefficient combustion.
