147 1.9Jtd-M 16V
Yesterday all was fine but today I went for a drive and after 15 minutes the car seemed to loose its acceleration.
The car wont accelerate quickly in any gear and makes a rumbling/diesel/tractorish noise as I try to accelerate.
The Diesely tactory noise I mention is definately new and I noticed it just before the lack of power, it is quite loud and sounds nasty!
Any Ideas as to what this could be?
I have tried with the MAF unplugged no Improvement.
I have plugged a code reader in and no fault codes or errors were found.
I have now also noticed a tapping noise from the engine, quite quiet, it may always be there but had not noticed before?
The car picks up a lottle at 3,000RPM but still not to It's usual speed.
There is no additional smoke.
If I hold it a 3,000 revs it seems to be backfireing.... and if driving at steady revs just below 3,000 in 2nd gear the car jolts..
I am going to look at the EGR valve on Friday but is there anything else this could be?
