    Unhappy Update update update update update update

    Hi all,

    You may have seen my threads about my clutch and not being able to get the car into gear....

    well....I went over to the car tonight as I needed to get it back to my house so took a train over.

    I then approached the car and started her up....WEIRDLY...it went into gear and I was able to drive off...only problem was the handbrake was seized on ( i could feel the resistance)

    So i drove off and for fear of not being able to get it into gear on my journey home and being stranded somewhere else I took the motorway.

    Driving down the slip road all was fine then onto the motor off I went...As I was accelerating up through to about 80 mph....It eased off without me doing so as if you have your foot right down to the floor and your are running out of petrol/diesel. Do you know what I mean? As if the acceleration isn't constant. I wasn't out of diesel...I had a quarter of a tank left....

    Nonetheless I carried on and the car would go no faster than 75mph at a push...

    Came off the motorway at Junc 12 of M4 and as I accelerated away from the traffic lights the car will not rev above 3000rpm....

    Struggled to get up a steep hill in Calcot but got there in the end and now the car is parked outside....First thing I have done is report this back on here to see if anyone knows what the hell is going on?!?!?!

    PLEASE HELP!

    With you loosing power while cruising , i am wondering if your turbo is not spooling up , now this can be your intercooler hoses , your vacuum hoses the turbo itself , failing that maybe as others have said egr blocked up with soot would pull the power down , but most if not all of these would bring up the spanner light on your dashboard .
    To start your checks what does the car tick over like is it a constant speed or does she hunt up and down on the rev,s , if thats ok get some to sit behind the wheel and rev the engine meanwhile you look for any sign of air escaping anywhere on the inter cooler hoses also check your vacuum hoses for signs of cracks or perishing around the connectors if still no luck there then we will think of other things like egr or boost sensor to check and clean
