CLK 200 Kompressor convertable
Hi, everyone,
Just wondering about my CLK200 Kompressor ! It seems to have a sort of blowing sound from the exhaust or manifold when started from cold ?? its been back to the garage where I bought it from but they could not find anything leaking . It only sounds blown for a few minuts and also when you put your foot down other than that its fine.
Has any one else experienced this or is it a common trait ?? I know of the manifolds sometimes cracking but mine does not seem to be a cast iron manifold , its mor like a pressed steel one that is welded around the center.
Any light thrown on this would be appreciated thanks
