    Default little power 150 cdti

    hi to all i hope you can help me my car
    i was driving up the motorway when it through a fit the engine management light came on so i drove to my brothers and we cleared the code 2279 (egr valve leak) so i checked the egr and cleaned it out while i was at it then not used it for a couple of days
    when i used it today the dreaded light back on same code and no power it takes ages for the car to build speed up it will rev when stood but slowly
    i checked the egr for leaks with carb cleaner and no leaks
    but the car has no power at all foot to the floor and it takes ages
    what will happen if i take the egr of and put the blanking plates on
    need help as its just a big pain
    cheers for any help

    Have you checked your vacuum boost pipes the sticky thread at the top on here if you have a minute hole in any one of them you will loose all boost mate worth checking all pics are in the thread it's the cdti check your boost pipes sticky worth a read and check or even replace them any way as I found great improvements mate if that fails could be a hole in your intercooler or turbo pipes if it's just boost your losing and nothing else
