I have had a 1998 9-3 2.2 TiD for 18 months.

When I first got it it was really slow and gave me a CEL accelerating up hill.

I got that fixed under waranty and was told it was a problem with the air management system and took 1/2 an hour to fix while I waited.

After this it was more like driving a normal car with decent acceleration.

In recent months the acceleration has been dropping again doing 0 -70 in about 30 secs (i am getting burned off by fiat uno's). I cleaned the MAF but this hasnt helped.

Any ideas.

Thanks in advance

If you are not getting the check engine light on, I would think are in the right area. I would suspect the Mass Air flow sensor is not reading correctly.

The thing to know is exactly what was done the first time and exactly how..

You may have to return to the dealer, or better yet find an indy familiar with Diesels and have it fixed.. It may not be a MAF this time..

The service free vehicle has yet to arrive and stringent performance, pollution, and security standards have added to this economic load problem..

My old VW Diesel had none of these problems, but the same cannot be said for the newer ones...
