One thing to let you know... I had a tech spend countless hours on one of these engines for the same symptoms... We recalibrated the pump, replaced the injectors, and checked the timing chain and performed a compression test......Nothing fixed it untill I was told by MB DOC that they liked to bend the connecting rods in the engine. We pulled the cyl head and there it was, 2 bent rods. Replaced them and all was cured (about 5K dollars for alot of work)
