    Smile Calling all v6 owners i need help

    Evening all i really need your help i have a 57 plate vec thats done just over 12,500 miles i just recently bought a plug and play tuning chip to increase my bhp from 184 to 220 i fitted the chip and the results where amazing however the next day i was driving around (not thrashing it) i pulled over with my engine still running for about 10mins when all of a suden my engine cut out and would not start again i left it for a minute or so then it started again i sat on my drive with my engine ticking over and it did not cut out so i thought it was ok so i had to go to the shops whilst i was stoping starting the ****** thing stoped again so buy this point i took the chip off and put everything back to normal this was last week since that i have noticed my car is sluggish esp when im in 6th gear and put my foot down i used to be away no problem but now i need to change down a gear something i would not have had to do also i dont know if its me worrying but when i use 2nd and 3rd gear i can here a slight vibration sound a kinda knocking sound but when i put my food down it disapears i have not had diesels before so im guesing its becouse im in the wrong gear and its the engine turning to quick i dont know.... anyway there is no blue or black smoke when i start it up my engine sounds fine when im staionary and rev my turbo whistles its just the slugish bit im worried about i know im due a service soon so could it be the plugs need changed or the filters ect please send me a private msg if you have any ideas

    i take it that you have a 3.0 V6 diesel.

    the facelift versions of the smokers hate to be messed with and should avoid tuning boxes.

    Well at least they know what they're doing, so hopefully they can leave the car in a working condition you're happy with.
