Wierd problem driving my 1982 300td wagon. Twice this weekend upon moving out from a red light the car upshifts and doesn't die but does not respond to the pedal. The first time i just drove on to the shoulder and figuring my filters were clogged just replaced them with spares. Put old ones in ziplock bag and when I looked they both seemed to be clean. Then this morning same thing, upshited and lost power. This time I pulled off the road and waited 15 to 20 seconds and tried to go. Very weak accel, but gradually builkt up speed and all day worked fine. came back on a 200 mile trip no problems. Injector pump is calibrated and fuel pump rebuilt within 1000 miles. New fuel hoses and tank has been checked for plugging. New glowplugs etc etc. Please point me in the right directiuon. Thank you.
