Not Happy Hello!!

I have a 147 jtd that has just developed a strange noise and an almost complete lack of power. The noise is like a scraping / rattling noise, and there is no urgency when wide open throttle is applied, in fact it will not rev beyond 3000 either in gear or in neutral. there is no black smoke.

A local garage mechanic has suggested the "noise" is attributed to the air conditioning pump drive, but this would not explain to me the lack of power.

The car is an 03 plate with now 98,000 miles FDSH

Could this be a MAF or turbo problem?
