Hi Blake. Thanks for sending in your question. Quite often, reduced acceleration with a turbo diesel is caused by excessive carbon build-up in the throttle body, the fuel injectors or even the glow plugs being worn out. Usually, the best way to resolve this problem is to clean these components, replace the plugs and see if things clear up.
