E34 TDS Auto Sluggish acceleration

Recommended Posts

Finally got her back on the road. Fresh service. Found a few faults, the fuel gauge does not go past a quarter even on full tank. Handbrake handle doesn't click. Most importantly though is the acceleration feels really sluggish. The revs go up but the car takes its time to move, not very responsive at all. What could be the problem? I was thinking the TC has gone or maybe the auto box needs a service? Anyone else experienced this?

With auto boxes,it is always a good idea to do a flush and refill and a new filter.  Rather like a Double Diamond, it works wonders!

They default to economy mode. Tried sport mode? It lets the engine rev a bit higher before it changes up. Not sure what sort of improvement it will make with a diesel though :)
