    Default No power!

    Bizarre one here - maybe something simple?

    1.9CDTI 150 with upgraded Vacuum hoses (4mm ones), Airbox mod and K&N, 10kboost last weekend, Boost Sensor cleaned last weekend.

    noticed been running a bit sluggish in past week after doing work above, doing new EGR this weekend, but plugged DTUK box in this morning and was flying but then started to notice sluggishness low down in revs.
    Went over a bump (maybe coincidence) and now reallllllly slow and sluggish - no warning lights on....

    Any pointers on things to check??

    Is yours a hatchback and not a automatic, signum, or estate as could be dpf clogged up but if you have a manual hatchback then won't have one

    Sounds like egr couk be sticking open a bit

    Or could be no3 injector

    Also could be your swirl valves so check your inlet manifold


    There are loads of threads on here about the above so do a little search and see what you find

    New EGR has arrived, not sure whether to use the Fiat semi blanking gasket or not.....

    Had new manifold done by Vx prior to me buying car (approx 80k, now on 116k)

    Hopefully its the EGR - sounds like it as it's become intermittent today.

    Thanks!
