sprinter power issues - event boy
have a 2000 w 411 cdi sprinter.

have been having problems for the last couple of months that it has been really down on power. had a valve changed on the high pressure fuel pump a few weeks ago after it stopped comletely. but that did not make it worse. just seems like there are about 30 horses missing. slow up hills and on acceleration but ok when up to speed.
not in get you home mode as will rev all the way to 400orpm just takes a while

head gasket went today. does anyone know if the power problems were likely to be caused by a failing head gasket or is there ay thing else commen that causes it.
