I've got the same problem. No engine lights coming on. however, my OM606 engine is losing power on hills, the pump becomes very noisy and the engine misfires. Especially if you come to a halt, jump out and check for air in the fuel lines. When the MAF is unplugged the misfire goes away but it is not the MAF sensor or the air intake temperature IAT sensor as these have recently been replaced. I am yet to replace the tank strainer. I think the pump is causing cavitation. Apparently, Bosch wanted these pumps to run on a 10mm bore. Mercedes reduced this down to 6mm at the tank end on the hose tail that screws into the strainer. Not a good move for older pumps. Your problem could be the turbo or the control unit for it... I am trying to source the part number for the G-Waggon hose tail. This should theoretically be 8mm for the same pump.
