Mid Range Acceleration
I have a 2007 300C CRD that has done 157,000 kms and up until now the most serious thing has been a failed diff.....
Now the following happens:
Between 2,500 and 3,000 revs the car will not accelerate it lurches and runs very rough
foot off the accelerator and it runs (reasonably smoothly).
If I shift down to get in the rev range at a fixed speed and then accelerate it does the lurching even if I very gently accelerate.
If I accelerate from low speed as soon as it gets into the 2,500-3,000 rev range it lurches and no more power/acceleration. If I ease off it runs OK.
The are no codes showing with the triple ACC/ON.
Gear change is smooth enough but I cannot rely on the car to accelerate when its needed.
Any ideas before I resort to the stealership.............?
