2.4 JTD Poor Acceleration

I have a 156 2.4jtd (2000) experiencing poor acceleration on moving from standing start with revs initially dropping when applying power and then very slow to pick up speed.Also speed topping out at just over 3000 revs.Otherwise driving fine smooth and resposive between 2000-3000 revs and idling with no probs.

Any suggestions please.

Check your pipes mate, I had the same symptoms and found it to be a 3" tear in the pipe above the battery.
