Help!!! My 1998 (115hp - 150,000 km) 9-3 TDI seems to be lossing power - the acceleration seems around 70% of what it used to be and going up long hills on the moterway (starting at 120kph) i really start to lose momentium even with the foot to the floor.

Any suggestions??? Thanks

Try a true major tune up, have the injectors cleaned, but first assure that the all-important compression is good. But first consider the add-on devices - these could be more troublesome...

Then there are pollution control devices which can run a-foul...
This may be a sacrilege, but I would at least lurk on the Mercedes or the VW TDI board.
They also have some problems, caused by air pollution control devices....
