When I drive this car it runs better than my '83 300D. It drives excellent, good acceleration and smooth running at highway speeds. It just knocks like crazy at idle. And the knock quits when you loosen the injector fuel line. Can the soot created by the EGR be blocking the air flow to that cylinder? I mean soot in the intake manifold? All of this is caused by no.1 cylinder. What really puzzles me is the increase in rpm's when the supply to no.1 is cracked.

'83 300D 283,000 mi.
'88 Jaguar XJ40 132,000 mi.(sold)
'88 Olds 88 190,000 mi.(given to grandson)
'81 300SD 313,000 mi. (given to granddaughter)
