1999 Mercedes-Benz Vito 110 2.2 diesel
Was a dog, now is mean to drive
Bought the Vito van 6 months ago and it went into limp home mode. Found it really hard to find any mechanics with any experience with these, and like everyone didn't want to take it to the Merc dealer. So I bought a manual on line. I am a motorbike mechanic so figured no problems.
Have fixed the limp home mode problem; it had a hole in a intake pipe, this is a good place to start - check all rubber pipes after turbo to intake (also cheap to fix), then check all electric fittings to all the intake pipes. Runs great now and good on gas.
Also there is a few things you can do to make go way better, but will post that soon. And also how to fix door locks.

Great van. Bogeys along and uses stuff all gas, and is way quieter than the Hiace.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
