Gutless 2.4 JTD
I've recently bought a 2001 2.4 Sportwagon with just over 20k on the clock. Driving back from Cornwall yesterday, it started misbehaving when pulling away. To get the thing moving at anything other than a snails pace, I have to get the revs up to about 2.5k and then pull off. Anything much lower than this and the revs drop.
Whilst driving, it appears that unless the turbo's actually doing something, 'foot to the floor' has very little effect. It's almost as though the fuel is dribbling into the cylinders at its own rate no matter what I do to the accelerator. Once I hit about 2.5k revs it's perfectly OK.
Does anyone have any ideas? I tried a search on here, but with no success.
