Hi All, I am in need of some help/adice on an issue that has developed over the last few weeks... The car is a 2007 520D with the M47N2 engine. When the car is started from cold, there are fumes that are coming from the the back fothe engine on the air filter side as shown in the following vid: I had the glow plugs rep[laced some time ago as 1 of them was failing. Thereafter I had the car serviced and I am seeing faults come up for all 4 glow plugs, which Ive asked about separately on this forum and people here have suggested that it is a faulty low plug relay. I need to get that replaced. After the car warms up the fumes are no longer present and there is no loss of power or any difference in performance. The only other thing that has been happening for some time now ifs that when cold started, the engine idles but judders slightly here and there like a misfire, if I rev it it goes away for a while then returns, but once the car is warmed there is no more judder, its only present when cold starting. Any ideas? could it be the glow plugs or the relay causing this? I ask this because I think the plugs (possibly relay too) is the only thing that heats up on a cold start, is that right? If so, this could be the only hing that could be getting really hot enough for fumes to develop? Thanks in advance for your replies.
