It's likely an injector problem, a simple method to locate the problem is to use a short section of 8 or 10mm diam.hose dip one end of the hose to the injector lead and the other end to your ears,
you should hear a loud knocking or tapping noise, do it one injector at a time. any injector with a weak or muffled noise is likely faulty injector. replace or dismantle the injector and clean the pin.

so are you asking how to diagnose turbo issues, on fixya
that be like asking how to do brain surgery on , Mr, PHIL
the PCM may see the boost too low for load and RPM.
so, that can be lots of things, besides a bad turbo cant spool.
even a stuck open waste gate.
or controls issues,
best is to get a complex car serviced, by someone that can work complex turbo diesels,

if serious on DIY, why not buy the book on the car
the FSM
then see the turbo section and do the tests stated there.
if that sounds hard, it is,

The car starts to move very slowly and looses power easily while driving on the highways.


Sounds like clutch is slipping. If you accelerate and it does not respond I would say clutch assembly is bad.

04 diesel toyota landcruiser, no power when I accelerate. only revs to about 1500rpm. diesel and filters clean.


well it runs,,,,,
low power on a diesel is
1: low compression
2: bad fueling
#2 can take forever to find, if you dont know what engine it is or what fuel system was used.. no country stated, so cant guess
read the wiki on land cruiser and see what you have.
we dont know.

series 80?
series 100,200 ??? what?

one of those last 4? engines?
once there, we try to find out how it works. each varies.
can fix engines with out knowing exactly what it is, and the injection system, used.
cant.

Have you checked the PCV system?? If its stuck in the closed position then you will lack power and turbo boost. A vehicle needs 3 things to make it run proper; FUEL,FIRE and AIR. Try that and see if it helps.

Mercedes slk 230 kompressor supercharger doesn't kick in when gas pedal depressed to gain speed.


only a turbo "kicks in".a supercharger is a compressor that uses the speed of the engine, so the faster the engine the more pressure....use the gearbox for rapid acceleration....

My td4 freelander 2001. wont accelerate when i try to speed


I Had this simalar proble with my 2002 TD4 this was caused by stuck tubo vanes and a replacement turbo was required, But the cause of this is a small oil filter *(size of a cotton reel) situated near the injectors in a plastic housing that gets oil saturated and then passes oil throught to the turbo and burns (you can also get a slight sweet smell out of the exghaust at tick over when hot)

My 2000 diesel 2.o freelander propshaft was recently repaired. The turbo has suddenly failed sending oil all over the engine. 1st there was a big cloud of black smoke. Engine revved very high. refused to...


Hi ,
Not easy this one,when your turbo failed the oil feed to the turbo bearings continued to feed engine oil into the intake side(could not turn off),the engine is then Un-governed and free to rev way above maximum limit,it has then massively over heated, the oil treatments are unlikely to cause this problem ,usually down to not letting the Turbo "wind down " after driving,The best course of action is to replace the engine and turbo charger and have the induction pipes and intercooler properly cleaned ,there are no cheap fixes for this you were just unlucky.
