    DPF check

    I think the wrong engine oil has been used, it has 4 service stamps and all have used 5w-30 which I believe is 229.51 or 229.31 which is low ash. If a diesel particulate filter is not fitted shouldn't it be 229.3 or 229.5 such as Mobil 1 0w-40?......:confused:

    Kwik fit are a joke

    W211 E Class 220/270/320cdi? Which one

    I thought the 270 was a 5 cylinder? mine is the 320 il6, fuel consumption is much the same as the 270, the extra power in the 320 is well worth having.

    It,s like driving along a corrugated road

    I dont think it can be the Valeo problem as it didn't affect the S class, as with my car it was a worn ar damaged torque converter, the symptoms sound very simular but I didn't get gearbox lockout or red lights on dash. It really needs to go on Star to check if for gearbox fault codes.
