my 05 sprinter has no power. just changed 3 injector and injection pump and turbo hose. veryslow accelaration. from 60 to 70 crawls. cant go faster than 70. crawls up hills. please advise.
is there any thing else thats odd? check engine lights, excessive black smoke, any greyish/whitish or bluish smoke? do these vans have mercedes benz diesels in them or do they have the cummins 4bt? if you fill me in a little more ill be able to help
sounds like the cat converter is stoped up,or the timeing is off,jumped time.
i dont think these trucks have cats, some diesels do i know that, but im pretty sure this has the mercedes benz bluetec stuff on it, if so its got a DPF so there could be a problem with the regeneration mode, and its causing high drive line pressures but i think that would turn a CEL on
check engine light is on, freightliner blamed that on the glow plugs.when it cut off the other day black smoke came out on restart.
im assuming this is the mercedes engine then because you said glow plugs. id go get your codes scanned and see what they are. glow plugs wouldnt cause your engine to cut out at all, my bet is you could possibly be having a lift pump issue, does it stumble and then pick right back up? if so thats your lift pump starting to die and your High pressure injection pump is picking up the slack. another thing is when under acceleration do you hear what sounds like a fan blowing under the hood? if so you have a hole in one of the boost tube boots, and your losing boost pressure, that will cause black smoke poor acceleration and possibly could be the reason why the truck wont get up to over 40
70 rather sorry
Hi Dan, I changed intercooler hoses and resanator today. Still no accelaration. I am thinking of dropping tank and clean that out.
Hi Dan, I just changed resanator and both intercooler hoses, Its still has accelaration issues. I am thinking of cleaning fuel tank next.
have you checked the turbo,loose bolts,crack in it,a wire laying on it burnt rember theses things run very hot.i know this is not a big rig,i had a small crack on turbo on one of my trucks,puffed black smoke out both stacks.also a dirty air filter will cause problems.
I had the same issue, i changed my fuel filter and it took catr ofy problem,
