1.9 JTD - temporary loss of power when cold
I've read about a few issues with similarities to mine, but not exactly the same so hope someone could give me an idea of what might be happening with my engine.
One morning about a month ago, after starting the car from cold and driving for a couple of minutes, the engine lost power, wouldn't rev above 2000 rpm and the car could only crawl along. I pulled over and let it tick over for a couple of minutes before trying again and it seemed fine. Last week it did the same thing again and is now doing it almost everyday, but only when the car is cold having been standing for a few hours. At the moment I'm getting round the problem by either turning the engine off and restarting it or dipping the clutch and coaxing the engine back into life by pressing the accelerator to varying degrees, and once this has happened the car drives fine for the remainder of the journey.
Has anyone else encountered this or have any idea what might be causing it?
