Got a 51 plate Vito CDI. Real lumpy on tick over; misses then clears at about 3000 rpm. It smokes bad too. Any ideas please?
After experiencing the same issues, I tried pumping the clutch, and that seemed to free up the clutch switch, and I now rev to 6000 RPM!
Will be replacing the clutch switch, via ebay at 8.99.
Thanks for your advice folks!
Had similar problem with my 112. Changed the map sensor just by the wiper arm in the engine bay. Blew out the hose to the air box, and limp mode went off. Hope it helps.
Again, I have similar lack of power problems.
I have a 2000 110 CDi, which recently had to have an engine change. So it went in and worked OK, except that since the new engine, I have lost turbo boost. I had a brake sensor fault, so I got a new switch - still got a fault. Tried changing instrument clocks, but still no boost. I can hear the turbo, so I assume the boost is being 'wasted'.
Anyway, I have ordered a diagnostic kit off eBay, so I will report back the results.
I've got a Mercedes Vito 2000 108CDI, and last year the heater in the cab didn't seem to get very warm. I've drained the system, and it does get up between 60 and 80 on the clock. Could this be a problem with the thermostat, which is making it not flow right around the matrix? If anyone has any ideas, my name is Dave and my mobile is 07849552331.
The knock on mine sounded like the van was ready for scrap. Cost a tenner to fit bushes to the anti-roll bar and twenty for a drop link. Did not think it would be solved that cheaply.
The van does have problems, like any other. Love to drive it, love the look of it. Have heard of them doing 360,000 miles with very few problems.
Thanks for your listing. Have changed the anti-roll bar bushes, and the knock is gone.
I would like to thank you, as I thought I'd tried everything, as my Vito did the exact same.
So I looked for the switch, and there it was, so I took it out, covered it in WD40, and hey, it worked. So thank you very much mate.
Soak overnight with Coca Cola, dry off, then run the engine for 30 minutes until normal temperature. Worked for me.
Yeah, brief comment. I second that CRAZY solution to fixing the not revving over 3000RPM unless the clutch is pushed in on start up!! What is that about? Do I need fix something?! Or just push the clutch in? I don't know if I should laugh or cry?!
