Sound like dirty fuel filter. Replace your fuel filter first. Located on the frame rail on the drivers side. If problem still persist, check fuel pressure from fuel pump to fuel rail. 30-40 lbs with vacum attached to the pressure regulator. (driver's side engine compartment) and 40-50 lbs with vacum removed. If the pump doesn't pass this test, replace pump. One of these should solve your problem. Hopefully for you, its the filter...

Sounds like all those sensors are going to need replaced. Basically, they are all in charge of metering the air and fuel to the engine, so if they are malfunctioning, the car isn't going to run correctly.

Stalls out when the gas pedal is hit


Pull a spark plug. Is it black? Stalling on acceleration. Possible cause: vacuum leak; can be detected by spraying water on suspected area. Will produce sound as if drinking from a near empty cup with a straw.
Possibly throttle position sensor. When they go bad, they have a tendency to tell the ecm to release more fuel than needed, flooding the engine, and killing your gas mileage.

Fuel pump bad?


If you have 12 volts and a good ground on the pump harness and the pump isn't running, it's a fair bet that the pump has failed.

The truck cranks but takes a nose dive when you try to drive or accelerate. It has been sitting for about 4 years


check fuel supply(pressure) it sounds like its not getting enough fuel, check fuel filter, fuel for water or stale fuel. possibly fuel pump issue

When accelerating there is no power but when releasing accelerator slowly power picks up. why is this happening 2001 ml270 cdi


Hi, this is a common symptom of a clogged fuel filter that is straining the fuel pump itself.

When you accelerate, this initiates a rapid fuel flow through the lines. if the filter cant pass the proper amount, its will stall or hesitate the engine and cause sputtering or loss of power. due to this clogged filter, the pump cant keep up with your acceleration demands at this time. the reason for the power pick up upon De acceleration, is because the lower amount of fuel is able to pass through quite easily but, as soon as you demand more power, the clog will obstruct the more intense flow of fuel to the injectors.

Simply replacing the fuel filter and pump will fix this issue.

Please rate and god bless:)
