    Default 2.0 DTi low power/engine momentarily cuts out

    My '54 reg DTi 2.0 has started to falter under load and seems to lack power and turbo boost - also there is a different turbo hiss. I have checked round for leaky pipes but found nothing obvious - anyone had anything similar? I suspect it is an electronic/control problem rather than broken turbo, but not sure.

    Get the car hot and someone else to sit in it then rev the nuts off it when you're looking around the pipes. I didn't find my split until I did this. If there's a split, you'll see it open up.

    If it sounds like its hunting / going to stall the crank shaft sensors seem to have a 100 000 mile life span.
