If its a diesel then that's your answer. I have a 1983 240D and that's normal for that engine. Any old diesel does the same thing.

My volkswagon diesel with 235,000 miles on it smokes on startup in the following conditions:

1. Below 10 degrees F (-10 C or so).2. Above that temperature if I do not run my glow plugs for the standard 7 seconds.

Above freezing, if I run my glow plugs it starts first cylinder and does not smoke. If I start it without glow plugs, however, it belches black smoke for five or ten seconds.

This is not that uncommon. Some oil is so hot that it will start to smoke. The smoke can escape through this opening to the engine.

No ! We are not lucky I would like to see Ramona smoke, they would both be great at smoking though that is certain.

you could have a blown or leaky head gasket. white smoke would be caused by coolant getting in to the combustion chamber and getting burnt creating steam.

never if you want to smoke you can start at any age , but i would not recommend it be cause it is bad for your lungs

I would say in a bong or a joint would be a great choice. Or if your able to do blades why not?!

Worn valve guides? New answer : Worn valve guides WILL cause some what of a rough idle and engine would smoke at all times. If engine smokes at start up only and then quites then your problem would be the VALVE SEALS.

The places to purchase Mercedes Benz floor mats are many and varied. The best place to start would be the official Mercedes Benz website. Other options include, Auto Trader, Amazon and eBay.

Any engine that smokes during start up is usually caused by cracked/missing/worn valve seals and/or worn valve guides. This is due to oil pooling around the valve stem and being sucked into the combustion chamber.The good news is usually an engine will go along time like this because once it is running it is not usually a problem. In other words it looks worse than it is.

no she does not smoke Rayray1000: she would never smoke!

why would he smoke? no he doesnt smoke you guys.

Could be a head gasket issue, what color is the smoke? Anyway check that first.

The car might not start. If it does start, the banana might shoot out the tailpipe. If it is up in the muffler, it might smoke or burn.

A good place to start for any used cars would be Auto Trader, also Mercedes show rooms would sell them as well, and maybe a few used car dealerships, but with those it would be rather hit and miss

it would be great to start Aquamarine 2

No, the car would be called a "Mercedes Benz" - 'bent' would mean that it had been in an accident.

you would smoke it like a cigarette.
