Asked by jcsjr1002 Apr 09, 2011 at 11:14 AM about the Mercedes-Benz 560-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Benz Big Jim is really a 1986.  He has been running rich and when I press on the gas black particles blow out of the exhaust.  When idling the exhaust is blue-ish and smells like gas.  This started after the transmission was adjusted and I never went back to the garage - not happy with the service.  I need to find a solution-live in Attleboro MA and new to the area.  Anyone know a trustworthy mechanic?

I don't live in that state but sounds like you might have a cracked cylinder wall or bad gasket.
