    Your Mercedes:
    VITO 110 CDI 2001
    Hello again people,
    It seems I'm on a run of bad luck with my Vito 110 cdi, I'm curious to know if anyone has encountered my latest problem.

    The first thing I noticed was that the van was vibrating a lot more than usual (when stationary) after I picked it up from the mot, and over the last couple of days its become more of a rough drive particularly going from 1st to 4th. Also when I accelerate hard there's a really loud growl coming from under the engine, which goes when I ease off.

    Added to that a lack of power is noticeable untill I get to 5th and up to about 60 mph.

    Any ideas? I'm losing a bit of faith in the old workhorse, so hoping this isn't a major problem.

    Cheers
