My 1983 Mercedes 240D was running great. We had just replaced all of
the glow plugs and the battery is strong. However, I started to notice
that at the "top" of each gear, the engine seemed to "wane" in power.
One night, I was driving on the freeway at 70 mph and the engine just
gradually started to lose power and eventually shut off. I coasted to
The engine turns over, the glow plugs light and everything seems pretty

Any advice would be grealy appreciated on how to address this issue.
