1981 300cd, 1981 300sd
Weird Problem. 82' 300d Turbo, Auto, 250k miles, SUPER slow on acceleration. I mean super slow. So slow, I can get out and run faster than it pulls out in drive. I takes forever to get the RPMS up but when I hear the turbo spool up, I feel it pulling and I can get to 60-90+mph no probs after that. But if I stop at a red light, or worse yet, a red light on a hill, I'm not going ANYWHERE. Seems like its starving for fuel, but if that was the case, I wouldn't be able to get to 90mph like I can. If I use 1st to start off, its a HAIR better, but still very slow to get to going. There's basically NO bottom end power at all. So what's the culprit? I was think a bad Vac Mod on the tranny so while it's in D, it skips 2nd and 3rd. adn just tried to drive in 4th all the time, thus the no accel and power. But manually shifting into Low doesn't help too much either. It shifts good, so I'm thinking the trans is good. Turbo works. I also thought about a clogged banjo bolf, but that was cleaned at the exhaust manifold. Maybe the ALDA was messed with and set wrong? Maybe the overboost not working??? Thanks in advance.
