'83 240D was on highway, all of a sudden wouldn't go faster than 10 miles per hour, had to drop down to First gear, car barely climbed hill . Engine not getting much RPM's even in neutral, finally I pulled over at Rest Stop, had an adjustable wrench, so figured problem was fuel filter, took it off and drained it, but couldnt locate the "Hand Pump" in the Haynes Manual to bleed air. Suspect problem was listening to Post to add Transmission fluid to Fuel to "lube" injectors; perhaps I added too much. Anyway (1) What are possible faults and (2) How do I find the hand pump to bleed air. I am going back in two hours after a nap. Please help. Thank you.
