Shortly placing an order for a C Class estate current facelift model but undecided about which engine, although needs to be a diesel. I particularly love the 3L V6 diesel I have in my current car, so not sure if I would be disappointed in the refinement levels of the 4 cyl engine, although I appreciate it is more economical.
Any thoughts from those with either engine would be much appreciated. I have the facelift C CDi, same twin turbo 4-cyl 2. From the exterior it does sound gruff and a bit rattly on startup, but I'd suggest all 4-cyl diesels do.
Once warmed up it's quiet in car and it's a smooth refined unit, it feels torquey and understressed and I actually think the engine note on hard acceleration is pleasant, though the on-paper figures suggest it's faster than it actually feels. Just sold my C CDI, albeit with the older cc engine, after 6 months as I simply couldn't accept the 4 cylinder engine noise. I know the new cc twin turbo engine is a more modern and smoother engine, but at least fro the outside I still think it sounds rough compared to the silky smooth V6.
Only advice would be to try both and see if either is acceptable to you. I know the new cc twin turbo engine is a more modern and smoother engine. Thanks, that's all good stuff. Hoping to try both back to back on Friday and I know the won't be as refined but just wonder if I could live with it long term. Obviously the economy is better and the road tax lower, just not sure I can give up a 6 cylinder for those benefits though. Can anybody with a comment on the turbo lag at all?
My 5 yr old CDi is great but does have some lag and just wondering if this has improved with the current V6? I know it still has just the single turbo, so may still be some lag perhaps? Biggriff 2, posts months. Head saysheart says After the CLS cdi no comparison. I have had my model E CDi for just over a week now.
It has plenty of torque and the 7-speed auto is a perfect match. The noise is a bit gruff when cold, but to be fair, the car is well insulated and very refined overall. My commute is an 85 mile each-way motorway schelp, so I am revelling in the economy of the 4-cylinder CDi and am getting high's mpg even on a new engine that is yet to loosen-up. In contrast, my old v6 TDi long-term average was about 26mpg.Mercedes C 220 CDI 2014 W205 - acceleration 0-230 km/h, top speed test and more
No contest! Spoke to the dealer today to confirm the test drives and everything set up for me for Friday, so will give them both a good drive and will report back on the findings. After a mile drive with my CDi today, the 4 cyl has a lot to live up to to match that for refinement and sheer grunt though. I guess you can see which way this is heading.Forums New posts Search forums. Media New media New comments Search media. Members Current visitors.

Why does my car lose power at random times?
Messages: 12 Likes Received: 0 Joined: Jun 1, Lately it would have pulled like a train when started, then after a while, there was no power. If it was turned off and on again, it would be good as new, for another ten minutes! Now theres no power all the time. It wont rev above rpm. I had it plugged into a diagnostic computer and the only fault that wouldnt clear was the "Inlet port shutoff motor " If thats the Pierberg unit just before the inlet manifold, it was all gunged up inside.
I took it out, cleaned it and, using a syringe, checked that it was working properly. The car is just the same as before! Anybody got any ideas???? Messages: 76 Likes Received: 0 Joined: Nov 27, I checked all the hoses and couldnt find any obvious leaks. I made a wee mistake with the error code BlakeyJun 2, The gunge really only starts in the valve where the EGR ties in.
I might just block the EGR and that would rule that out There was a little bit of residue upstream of the EGR valve, but it wasnt enough to worry about. Downstream of the valve into the inlet manifold is black with a tarry residue. It looks like alot of work to get this out and cleaned, but theres no point doing this until i a get the car back to full power and b find out why its there in the first place. The diagnostic doesnt blame the MAF code MAF was present, but i put a new one in last year after a power loss, but it cleared and didnt return.
Dont wanna be throwing money away buying sensors and valves i dont need!!!! Very few diagnostic test show the MAF to be at fault, as Blakey un plug it and try the car, nothing can happen other that to be better. Folks, I disconnected the MAF and its just the same. Does that mean that's definately the problem or is there anything else it can be? BlakeyJun 3, I had the same problem on my CDI,after trying all sort of things it turned out to be the vaccum actuator for the turbo.
Worth a try if nothing else,easy to test. John KerrJun 3, Hi, John I've ordered a MAF in the hope that this is what the problem is! Once i get the car back to full power, i plan to investigate the tarry crap built up in the inlet manifoldI tend to drive steady and never hard, the problem is on the average when im on a motorway doing 70mph and I decide to increase speed to say for example to take over and need instant speed my car does not increase in speed regardless if i gently push down on the accelerator or fully push down.
There are no sounds out the ordinary and can see the speed is decreasing rather than increasing and then slowly builds back up at a very slow pace but the gears are changing as if you was intending to drive slow and have slow gear change. My car has full service history and i have had it serviced only a week ago on time but problem has not gone away although rare I am concerned it may get worse. I have tried driving in C and S mode but makes no difference.

I thought the idea behind buying a decent car was performance but this does not deliver, my corsa gave more performance than this. PS I have had to select a ramdom model from the drop down as mine is not listed. MOBY82 answered 6 years ago. Just for reference for others with similar issues. It is likely to be the booster pipe which was in my case and loss of power as car system goes into safety mode also known as 'limp mode'.

The car is a 53 Ccdimiles with automatic box, today after sitting on M25 for an hour in jam surprise turned off down slip road and accelerated around roundabout gearbox changed up but jerkily, thereafter it had very sluggish acceleration and no kickdown - this has not affected top speed - just longer to get up there. After shut down it resets to normal until about 10 miles then problem returns?
Last year had a similar fault but much worse - maximum speed about 45mph after diagnosis by garage they changed a servo motor expensive reset codes and all well until now. This time it's driveable with patience, and as reasonably competent would like to try to cure myself.
Also, is there any recommendations re good MB indies in central Essex??? Jaguar41FDec 1, Thanks I had considered the MAF, looking at it it appears it could be cleaned is this possible or should it just be replaced as matter of course? You could also try unplugging it sometime they will run fairly well without it. AlalDec 2, You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content. Share This Page Tweet.
