Customer Question
It hesitates at acceleration...

It hesitates at acceleration . At 1800 RPM s it really takes off. New gas pedal, new actuator. Code P2853 says Dodge tech. It is so slow until 1800, it’s dangerous in traffic. Awaiting your reply, thanks, Stan

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Starts great, V- 6 diesel

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Dodge?

2007 , 150,000 miles 144” wheelbase, one owner

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I love the van!

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

Complete vehicle information wasn't posted with the question but I'm assuming you have a Sprinter with a 3.0 engine. P2853 isn't a valid fault code for a 2007 Sprinter however.

Can you post the VIN?

Do you know what fault codes were read with?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
