Injection System Failure.

Help, (Alfa 159, 55 plate!)

I have recently started experiencing lack of power when accelerating in all gears whilst in low revs. When the rev counter goes to roughly 30000 I then retrieve full power so to speak. Although this morning my Injection System Failure light came on and now the car is very sluggish (Limp mode I think?). I have read through forums and have been pointed in the direction of the EGR valve being blocked up and that the DPF may need cleaning. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

No power in low revs usually points to EGR valve. Remove it and clean it out (do a search on this forum for instructions), or replace it.

injection fault COULD be just the connectors to the injectors. Get them off, nice WD40 on it and squeeze the metal inside the connectors a littlebit together.

Could be EGR, could be sticking VNT's.
