Thank you for replying ,
The oil seems okay
i forgot to tell you that i took it to mercedes dealers for annual servicing but as soon as i started the car the next day it started smoking.Usually i leave the car for five months without driving and only starts the car and runs for 15--20 minutes.Could grow plugs or catylitic unit has a hand in this. My car is C220 amg Diesel 3 years
before we think of the cylider head gasket is there a way to diagonise the problem

Strongly agree with chassis221.

Make sure that the engine oil level is not above HALF FULL. If it is, then drain the oil until it is less than below halfway between low and full.

half full? don't you mean halfway between the low oil level mark and the high level mark?

Dont over fill the engine oil... that would cause it to emitting smoke fill up till the dip stick for engine oil up to F-full L-low between those are good oil levels..
