For many of the fixes on your MB you can find used parts and learn to do some and get help from others. That way you can avoid future bills of $398.

Yep, it should smoke more but you shouldn't nice a whole lot at a cruising speed of 60 mph. Perhaps a little there but mostly on acceleration.

$398 I just did injectors for that! Yeah they will smoke a lot more than gas cars. The color is important:

Blue means oil
Black is to much fuel
White/sweet smelling smoke is anitfreeze.
