1985 300CD Slow Initial Engine Speed
I have had my 300 CD turbodiesel for about 8 years. When it is first started at any time of the day, it is very slow to get up power. If I pull out onto the highway I hope I am headed down hill, or I leave lots of space between me and the car behind me, because it takes about a block for it to get up to about 3400 rpm. After it reaches that engine speed it has plenty of pep and I don't have any more problems the rest of the day. Any suggestions on what would cause this initial lack of power?
