Question 1992 300D power loss=Transmission ?

I have exhausted myself looking for causes for my lost performance.
new parts...
air filter, and both fuel filters
I inspected vacuum hoses for possible leaks.
I have plugged vacuum line coming from EGR valve and also
placed a solid metal gasket for EGR just in case.

I have noticed that the transmission isn't down shifting as I remember. Climbing hills is almost dangerous with no kick down
unless I force passing gear.

I havent checked the fluid level or color yet..the trani was serviced with Amsoil ATF @ 92k and now has 130K.

Any comments or suggestions appreciated!

PS
I have searched the boards, and tried the possible fixes mentioned for loss of power. I havent been able to find any info
on the transmission.

The blocked EGR is likely the cause of lost power. The engine control computer senses the lack of EGR and cuts power. Lots of info about that in the Diesel Discussion area.

(edit) For instance, here.

The year is important. Lots of people recommend it on the earlier ones, but starting with the 2.5 (1990 I think) the computer cuts the engine power when it detects a fault with the EGR.

Check the bowlen (sp?) cable adjustment.
Amsoil is not a recommend oil for Mercedes (or for any other car as a matter of fact.) Amsoil does not even have a API certification.

In section 0010/62 of the shop CD, it is said :

«The ARF system with vacuum transducer, switchover valve (as of Model Year 1992), ARF valve, air flow sensor and EDS control unit operates as a closed loop»

So I guess that any alteration of a component in the loop will have an impact. For instance, the vacuum transducer of that loop controls the boost pressure. If the EDS detects something wrong, there's a good chance that he will kill the boost to protect the engine. That's theory.

For the moment I can't verify this because I have a faulty transducer that generates a fault code and cuts vacuum to the boost pressure control.
