You may have a much easier problem to resolve than one would initially think. Replace the fuel filter and make sure if your vehicle has a "water trap" it is clean and clear. The problem sounds very much like a fuel pressure related issue. From your symptoms you listed it sounds classic fuel filter problem.
Good Luck!

Have u had a trouble code test run on the engine management computer to see if any codes are present that might explain this loss of power?

If you have a manifold gasket leak on a '07 trailblazer ss would it make the vehicle lose power when driving down the highway


A manifold gasket leak will cause a power loss everywhere you drive, although a hot engine may lose more power than a cold one. You can check you spark plug color. A manifold leak makes a lean mixture so the plug should show the typical white-ish deposits.

How much warm up time does a dodge sprinter 2500 diesiel require in the winter time?


At idle it can take hours to fully warm up

If your concerned about driving it right away after starting, not a big issue.....start, let it warm a min or two then drive.

Diesels warm slower than gas engines, and they take longer to get warm enough to give you heat untill fully warmed up.

Normally you should see good temp and good heat after driving about 15 minutes after the first cold start of the day.

2004 f 250 diesel smokeing and losing power


Is the check engine light on? Any more specific info like year, make, model, what color the smoke is, how many miles, etc........ This could help to narrow down the problem other than the smoke which all diesels do with quick acceleration. You might get a quicker answer if you are more detailed!
