Question about 2001 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Hi, I have a 2001 E220 CDI with 76,000 mileage. There is a problem with exhaust tail pipe smoke on acceleration. I have recently got the injectors overhauled and B-service done. The car still gives out black smoke on acceleration. The car’s pull is OK (no loss of power) and fuel consumption is pretty. Can anyone help to guide me want the possible cause might be? Thank you in advance, Paul.
Spark plugs also one of the reason for black smoke.....

Black smoke is almost always an indication that the air/ fuel mix (ratio), is too rich. I would try to find out if the just cleaned the injectors or were they replaced. Cleaning injectors and sometimes leave irregularly shaped orifices. Besure the air filter is clean. This can effect mix also.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
