I have a customers C220 CDI common rail diesel - 2000 model which
won't accelerate beyond 3,000 rpm. It is like this all the time
whether the car is at rest in neutral or driving. The car drives fine
once you have worked your way through the gears to cruising speed.
I have tried changing the air mass sensor which is normally the cause
of this sort of problem but no good on this occasion .There are
definately no air leaks between the air filter and the inlet manifold.
Has anybody encountered this problem ? If so any help would be much

Check that turbo is delivering boost. split intercoolers are common on
these cars, also the catalysts sometimes break up causing partial
blockage to the exhaust, if you drop the centre section of the exhaust
and run water backwards through it (opposite direction to travel of
exhaust gas) you will see metallic particles in the water that runs
out if the catalyst has begun to break up.
Be careful of the spring clip on the front section of the exhaust,
they come off very fast, I've got a nice scar across the bridge of my
nose from one of these ;-)
These would be the first two things I would check.
