      Check all the vacuum lines, sounds like its having trouble breathing. Super strange that there is no codes yet, maybe try having an automotive shop do a diagnostic scan as well to make sure the ELM's not missing anything?

      Diesel power never came to the US.
      But engines all need the same thing
      So if it idles and revs up a bit over idle, but then falls apart, I'd say fuel delivery issue. But again, diesel is not something I'm knowledgeable about

      How cold is it whereyou live? You could have fuel gelling issue making you have a fuel delivery issue.

      Not to mention some diesels have a cold start limiter where you can't rev above a certain RPM until it warms up a little to prevent issues.

      Step one: if it has a mechanical throttle cable, verify that you have full operation when the pedal is on the floor
      Step two: replace the fuel filter.
