Hi from Australia
I'm the sad owner of a 2003 ml270 with recurring black death :fail

Nice vehicle otherwise.
What year did the boffins at MB decide to change the design of the injector seating to eliminate this (:fail) problem?
Hi folks, ordered a cable from amazon aux line in for audio 20 great found the how to plug it in guide, however when I exposed the plug (in the passenger footwell) it didn't match the one from amazon. turns out I have bought the one that plugs into back of audio 20 unit. :fail

Noticed some whiffs of fumes recently, took air filter off today and injector number 3(or poss 4) is leaking. I already fixed injector 1 last year

OK guys had the car for about 10 days now and covered about 800 miles. Full MB service and noticed a bit more engine noise and an odd smell. Lifted engine cover and saw what looks like back tar / black death. Car has been recovered back to the MB dealer for a warranty repair.

I have a 53 C220 CDI with leaky injectors.
The injector seats need to be recut but i'm not sure if this engine has flat seats or are angled. The cleaning/cutting kits on ebay contain both types so is there a definate way of finding out what type I have.

This is a Mercedes sprinter with 122,000 miles on it. And the owner said he could not smell anything wrong trust me it stank of burning diesel from 20 feet away and surprisingly there was no usual chuffing noise from it. But definitely the worst black death I have seen.
Pulled up behind me in lane 3 at traffic lights on a long bend and very long dual carriageway.
Started pulling away straight away and watched the gap get larger by the millisecond.
It did try hard - I could see the front lifting up but no match for the old girl...
