The 81 300SD has lost the usual throttle response when starting out from standstill. I mash down on the pedal and it creeps along until the turbo kicks in at higher RPMs...This problem comes and goes. Haven't figured out a pattern yet but this symptom started yesterday. Both fuel filters were replaced maybe a month ago.
Since the problem is starting from standstill, shifting down to the lowest gear isn't helping. This isn't good when trying to dart across an intersection...Otherwise it runs fine once cruising speed is reached.
Injectors ? Fuel pump ? Please don't say it's something with the injector pump assembly...
Another hurdle to clear for the privilage of operating an MB diesel.
I need hints, suggestions, tips, or whatever.
Thanks for your help !
