Strange hesitation / lack of power during run to manchester

Hello everyone!

Me again! (Yes sorry to be a pain in the bottom)

Anyway, Bertolli exhibited some strange symptoms on the way to Manchester on Friday Night. A lot of highspeed cruising, which was fine. Then standard Friday night accident occured on the M6, leaving me in stop start traffic for 35 minutes.

The weird thing was though...As the traffic eased up and I could put the power down again. It picked up with a distinct juddering thru the wasn't even the standard your trying to accelerate in too high a gear type thing. Got rid of it by dropping a few cogs tho

On the way back I also experienced, what I feel to be slight power loss in 6th gear on light throttle openings.

I'm beginning to wonder whether or not I need a new EGR. Have just ordered the ELM cable to see if theres anything irksome logged in the ECU...and also so i can force a DPF regen.

Current MPG, on normal load at motorway cruising speed (80 - 85 ish) was seeing 36-38 mpg'ish

Have a quick look at my thread - hair raising experience...

Sounds very similar, not sure if that is reassuring or not tho
