Blue smoke, engine died, restart witho probs
Hi, I´m a newbie from germany. Bought a `97 Ambulance based on a E 350, 140 kmi. Like to convert it to racetransporter for my motorbike.
My problem: starting-fine (little blue smoke, thats it), after 40-80 mi I´m loosing extreme power with lots of blue smoke. Motor is nearly dying ca 2-300rpm. Ignition off- restart after 10-20 sec. and motor runs without problems. Up to the next 10-60 mi, same procedure. Renewed : All filters and liquids (oil, air, dieselfilter) new cps, drained water, checked sending pump and checked tank to sand and other stuff- clean! Normal engine sound, no rough or unsteady idle, no black smoke, good accel. up to theses moments- Don´t know what else to do!!
