Hi, I have a Mercedes-Benz Vito 112 CDI 2003 model, we just changed the diesel pump in the car. Now the power is down and it does not go over 3000 rpm. Is this normal? Why was it faster with a faulty diesel pump? It runs okay, we are just worried about the power loss. It gets to 120 km/h max speed. (112 cdi 2003)

Hi. I have a Mercedes-Benz Vito 115tdi 2005 model. When you drive it the engine management light comes on, then the Vito loses power and the vehicle will only limp. You need to let it stand for a day or so, then it will reset itself and drive as if nothing were wrong. I have had it on the diagnostic machine and it gives me a po110 code b17 air intake temp. sensor signal low voltage. Can you please advise me and indicate where this sensor is on the motor? Thank you.

My Mercedes-Benz Vito van starts very easy when cold, as soon as the engine is warm it struggles to start, but the engine is turning . It takes some time and eventually the vehicle starts, but sometimes it does not start at all and then I have to wait until the engine is cooled off. I took the the vehicle to Mercedes Benz to solve this problem but I drove it for a few days and the problem starts again. A lot of possibilities were looked at. Replace diesel pump, replace glow plugs, replace camsaft sensor, carry out engine test, test fuel pressure and leakage, remove intake manifold and high pressure fuel pump, replace all diesel pipes, but still I have the same problem. I am really frustrated now. This vehicle has been three times at Mercedes Benz . It`s cost me a lot of money but the main problem can’t be solved - hard starting when the engine is warm. Please dies anybody have any advice to assist me with this problem? Thank you.

My Mercedes-Benz Vito 115 CDi has loss of power. The following has been done - new reconditioned engine, new turbo, injectors serviced, replaced all the airflow sensors, free-flow exhaust and removed CAT convertor. I have taken the Vito to a few independent diesel specialists and all diagnostics tests are fine. The bus has just a huge lack of power. Can it possibly be the free flow exhaust? (115 CDi)

Hi. My Mercedes-Benz Vito has a noise coming from the fuse box after puting into ignition and switching it off without starting. The fan from the fuse box continues to run for long periods and at other times when switching off it goes off right away. Also when putting the radio on and keeping the volume at zero there is a noise coming from the backgrond which is continuing. Can anyone help me with what could be causing the problem? Thanks.
Both normal. The fusebox fan runs on depending on the box temperature and the radio has a small fan just behind the small grille next to it - C-e-s from Yorkshire
