    E290? Obviously from your location this is a European car? Is it diesel or petrol?
    With an epc warning I would imagine diesel!
    Can you not get the codes read on star?

    I think this engine has injector needle lift sensor issues, like the sprinters?

    But the resolution has to start with getting the fault codes checked.
