ENGINE LOSES POWER, AND LOTS OF WHI

1998 Mercedes Benz 300e

Engine Performance problem
1998 Mercedes Benz 300e 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 99500 miles

I own a 1998 Mercedes Benz E300 Turbo Diesel. For some time it has been difficult to start. If I do not have the time to warm it up for more than 10 minutes or more in some occasions, it chokes, loses power almost totally, and lots of white smoke comes out the exhaust.

I keep the car in the garage, it is not heated, but never happened before.

Thank you!
