    Vito 2.1 Engines smoking when idling

    Hi there everyone, this is my second post! I have a vito 111cdi and when it's been idling for a short period it starts bellowing out white smoke and think with a hint of blue in it if that's possible. When accelerating the smoke gets worse for a short time then disperses. Anyone have any ideas...

    W107 - Idling Badly

    Hi there! I own a 1972 350SL (W107) which used to run beautifully, however I managed to overheat her due to a fluid leak. Luckily, the engine didn't seize and after a few months at the mechanic she was running smoothly again. Except for one thing: once the engine gets warm it idles very...

    Turbo idling

    Bit of an oddball question. Was sat in traffic the other day, when the car did its economy engine shut off thing (yes, it's a BMW, but most cars do it nowadays). During the lull, I was thinking back to the old days driving SAABs turbos, and the standing instruction that after a fast run you had...

    Engine Idling on W124

    I have an E220 imported from India and registered in 2001. It is the W124 type (UK 1995). MB main dealer cannot access the EMS to diagnose my problem. The car only starts with throttle and dies without being revved. Once it is being driven it sounds rough at first then smooths out. On stopping...

    misfiring and fast idling on w124, 1994 E200

    I've got a progressively developing fault on my W124 estate. It started in the colder weather when at start-up the engine sounded like it was firing on three cylinders for about 10 to seconds, then it would clear itself and run smoothly. Now the weather has warmed up, the lumpy running at...

    CLK 320 w208 Idling rough

    I know I probably just need to get the codes read and it could be a number of things but basically on start up after around 1 min the car starts to idle as if it will cut out. Then I set off and it is fine. Then I pull up to a junction and as I hold it on the brake (auto) it does it again as if...

    :dk:I have soaked the Idle Control Valve in carbureter fluid and replaced a damaged vacuum bend. I put the ICV back in the car and now the car no longer stalls at traffic lights or junctions. However, the idle is still low (the rpm drops to 5000 when I go in to drive or reverse). I have checked...
