Customer Question
Hie. my C220 cdi...

Hie. my C220 cdi 2003 model sometimes just loses power and slowly picks speed. what could be the probelem. when i start it after resting it performs well

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It changes. when i start it its fine but it just loses power such that the rev doesnt rise

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your C220 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing so far

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

Was suspecting catalyc converter it also has an injector knock sound, could this cause power loss
