Customer Question

Hi Greg I have a 54 Plat Merc Sprinter 411C that has developed a Fault on the fuel system, I washed the Van with a steam Cleaner then decided to do under the engine after an hr of it idle while washing the van stalled then when I restarted it I am getting a miss fire and white smoke now heavy and what sounds like a diesel rattle before it stalls, when I restart it runs fine for 30 seconds then if I rev the engine the Van blows a load of Smoke then cuts out I think I have some water on the electrical system somewhere

Hi .
Yes looks like you shorted a sensor out somewhere on the engine ,
could be anything from crank shaft ses
Expert:  Greg replied 4 months ago.
To a air flow sensor . One has to be careful with high pressure washers.
You really need a scan tool to check for malfunction codes.
From the codes you will then know which sensor you shorted out.
