1.9 JTD no power under 3000 RPM...
I was cruising along at circa 70mph and suddenly I lost power. After pulling off the A road I had almost no power off the turbo and on boost I had very little grunt below 3500 RPM. A friend tailed me home in case of any problems and said that I was spewing a lot of soot, so after giving it the beans to keep it moving suddenly it started to drive like a dream again. The EGR was allegedly replaced before Christmas but I'm in dispute over some other problems with the mechanic and I'm wondering now if the dodgey swine didn't just clean it up instead. Does this sound like EGR or MAF? Would a faulty MAF cause it to run rich and soot up? He mentioned that the MAF reported an error, then again, he also charged me for some other work which wasn't done.
