    Diesel smoke cloud - normal?

    I can cruise around in my E220 CDI all day without any noticeable exhaust smoke. I don't even see any when the engine is cold-started. :) Very occasionally, I will put my foot down and then I can see a diesel smoke cloud in my rear view mirror. However, if I repeat the manoeuvre then there is...

    Diesel smoke?

    Not a problem for me since I drive a petrol engine, but I was curious to know what causes the small puffs of black smoke sometimes seen when a diesel engine accelerates suddenly. My understanding is that when suddenly accelerating, there is a momentary inbalance between the air / fuel mixture...

    S320 cdi ticking noise + excessive smoke

    Could these be related? Was told today that on the maifold the link between the motor and valves has broke and so they are stuck in the open position causing the rattling/ticking noise and the excessive smoke on harsh acceleration. Originally thought it was a leaky injector seal but all are...

    Smoke detectors

    Don't ask me why, but after recently buying some new smoke/fire alarms, I thought it a good opportunity to remind everyone else. If you haven't done recently, check or replace the batteries, and if you haven't got them yet, buy some!! For a few minutes or just a few quid if you need them...
