Power loss on mercedes c 250 td

Technical question

1 Answer


I had a problem with my 250TD - it lost power at about 70mph. It turned out to be nothing but a split hose on the turbo circulation system. Wasn't obvious as the hose collapses under pressure (for me, critical mass was at about 70mph) which then starves the engine of oxygen. Also cleaned the ducting while I was at it and gained an extra 100miles per tank of fuel!

97 Mercedes 250 td. Question is the climate control is not working right. If you set to cool (air con ) and turn the fan up to full it sounds like its on, but even if you put your face to the vents it has...

Blend door issue? Is there air blowing any where else like floor or at your feet? I would start there. If you have air elsewhere, then your issue is blend door. May sure the flow of air moves as you change the setting.

Low rpm/ loss in power/ slow accleration in a c200 mercedes 1996 model

low rpm/loss in power is cause by two things 1- fuel filters stop contaminants(rust,water,corrosion,sand,dirt)from entering the fuel lines if it is stuck could cause such problem 2-fuel pump also cause such kind of problems i think mercedes-benz has 2 pump if one is stopped the system will not have to needed fuel pressure and the quantity of the delivered fuel will be less than the needed one that will cause loss in power you have to check the fuel pressure in the lines.if one pump is not working change both pump because after sometimes the second one will stop and will cause the same problem again
check them and post me back to check what you found.

It can be faulty glow plugs (replace), clogged fuel injectors (fuel injector cleaner), warn distributor cap/wiring (check/replace), fuel pump circuit, also might be wrong ignition timing.
Please kindly let me know if you need more info
