155 Tech Questions

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a '96 155 after many years of owning 75s. As such I've yet to learn the idiosyncrisies of my new vehicle and so thought I'd turn to experienced hands for advice.

It's done 66k and so I've had the cam belt, tensioner and variator changed and also had to get the clutch release bearing and clutch replaced.

It now runs really smoothly but I've a few questions.

1. On start up the engine sounds pretty rough (like a diesel). I've heard that this could be a variator problem but this shouldn't be the case as I've just had it changed.

2. On start up, the oil level indicator and injection system malfuction light remain on longer than the rest (which disappaer after the customary few seconds). They do eventually turn off after about 30 seconds. Does anyone know why this may be happening (oil level is ok) and is it anything to worry about?

Thanks for any help you can give,

What engine you got in your motor ??

The start up noise could be a faulty variator or some sludge restrictint the oil flow to it on start up Try flushing the oil and putting a decent quality oil in wink

When you had the belts etc done they did re time your motor using the cam locks didnt they? If not the timing may be out slightly

Re the injector light its poss there is a fault on the system try the self test if not you may need to get the codes read
