Looks like Mercedes are going to "do a VW" - to their European diesel cars - to fix the emissions!
Software emissions fix for three million Mercedes diesels - BBC News
Let's hope it doesn't damage the performance, MPG or reliability of the cars that get updated!
Looking at emissions that DVLA have recorded on my C - Class, I was surprised at how high they are - Have DLVA made an error??
The car is an S204 C320 Sport CDI (AMG) with mixed 18" wheels 2009 - it's emissions are shown at 209 g /km, which seems high.
Given that my old 2004 S211 E320 CDI...
My S211 E220 cdi passed its mot yesterday with no advisories, which is great news.
The tester said the emissions only just passed and asked if I drove the car gently, which I normally do.
He advised that I gave it some welly once in a while and certainly before its next test. Does...
I had my MOT today on my W202 C43 and failed due to emissions. I have had a stainless exhaust with middle CAT and box delete done about 3 months ago the CATs were past it anyway.
Anybody in similar situation is there any fuel additive or other technique I can use to get through...
I've just heard back from my wife and the 124 has failed it's MOT on emissions. She has sent me a photo of the results (attached) and it has failed on the lambda reading. My thought is that the O2 sensor has to be the obvious candidate.
What do the more technically astute of you think...
Saw in the FT online that Daimler has launched a probe into emissions in the U.S, at the request of the Department of Justice.
This comes after some 'eager beaver' lawyers have entered class action law suits against Daimler - all in the name of justice and the pursuit of corporate clarity I'm...
I was hoping that some budding enthusiasts and general more experienced auto engineers out there might be able to offer some advice or thoughts on a tricky little emissions issue I seem to be having!
Having fancied the idea of owning a Mercedes for a number of years (but not having the...
So, the luxobarge passed its MOT today with almost flying colours, just a couple of advisories for a deteriorating numberplate and slight play in steering. I was just looking at the emissions sheet and wanted views on the results.
CO, limit 3.5% result 0.15% ! HC, limit 1200PPM, result 199PPM...
Recently had the exhaust replaced on the 230k with a straight through stainless job, including (stupidly?) a cat delete.
Just got the car back from the garage and somewhat unsurprisingly the car failed on emissions. However, it didn't fail by much at all.
My W124 1994 just failed it's MOT on Emissions
CO 0.99 fail
HC 43 pass
^ 0.98 pass
Second fast idle
CO 1.10 fail
HC 45 Pass
^ 0.980 Pass
CO 1.15 fail
Can anyone tell me what needs to be done or what I can do to pass the retest? The garage...
After the VW scandal and the subsequent Witch hunt that will ensue, I wonder how long it will be before chip tuners come under scrutiny of the authorities and how much MOT testers will have to pay to upgrade equiptment.
Hi, can anyone tell me how i can get written evidence of the correct CO2 Emissions for my van?? I have an ongoing dispute with the DVLA as i believe that the CO2 emissions stated on the V5 is incorrect? Any advice would be useful as i'm sure i'm paying too much for road tax. Thanks
Been spending ages looking at cars that are up to 95 g/km as I have my own company and can expense the whole car in year of purchase and just pay bik. Anyway - the W205 C300 Sport fits the bill!
Some questions I don't know if any one would know
- Does adding options make the car heavier...
I have a problem at the moment which is seeming to be very hard to solve with my 08, 311 Sprinter van.
Hoping to find some more clues here!
- Excessive white smoke when stationary / pulling away in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear.
- Excessive diesel fumes in cab.
The W210 E55T (well, mine, anyway) seems to have a 'sweet spot'. Hypothetically, I recently did a 256-mile journey, which I normally do at an indicated 75 mph (yes, I'm a bad person. Stop reading now...), going (traffic permitting) rather faster than usual (my wife was unwell, and needed to be...
Happy New Year!
Something that my car greeted me with promptly on Jan 1st is:
Emissions Test Carried out On Time?
And this is flagged as a malfunction, so it pops up repeatedly! As the next service is still some time away, I can't think why this is waving at me at this time. I didn't own the...
