hi mine does the exact same if changed the fuel filter and oil filter and air filter replaced the full exhaust system if any one can help i would be grateful im going to try the injectors but i dont think it is because it start and ticks over like a clock and drives not to bad just cant go over 45 mph and its not burning oil. Its not black smoke its blue when it does happen and its not all the time when it does happen. My model is the late 1995 r20 2.7 td slx version it only has 91000 miles on the clock with a service history

there is a micro filter deep down inside the pump under the inlet banjo pipe. The area needs to be spotless clean and great care taken, remove the banjo and make up a hook tool to with draw the filter, clean and refit. causes loss of power and a stutter and acrid blue grey smoke !

There was a post a few weeks ago and the guy did the above and he posted back to say yep it fixed it. he did admit it was a fiddle and I think if you find the post there is more detail.
