1993 Mercedes Benz 300d • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 114,000 miles

I bought a 93 Mercedes 300D 2.5 Turbo Automatic. It had been parked for 8 years, with 114 thousand miles. The owner had the diesel replaced, put new battery, replaced filter eleme, two fuel filters replaced V-Belt, replaced worn Vacum pump.

MY PROBLEM: It has no takeoff power! I can push the foot pedal all the way to the floor and nothing (still excellerating slowly) When entering the freeway, I have to wait a long time of slow excelleration inorder to flow into traffic. It feels like I'm towning a trailer with a car on it! PLEASE ADVISE! Thank You!
