Hi,

When I start my 1993 SL 500 from cold , it sounds like I have a blown exhaust.
After a few minutes when it is warm the noise stops!
Is this normal?and if so what is it?

Cheers,Rob.

Hi,

Yes I am,so I am in safe hands!

The noise is just like a blown exhaust but when it is just warm it turns of instantly as if a switch has been turned of.

Thansk,Rob.

No probs Rob!

We will sort it for you Sir.

If its a blow then you will have a soot mark from where the blow is!

Other than that, it sounds not so cheap!!

See you soon!!

Maybe it is the fuel system?when cold it opens the air for more fuel?
