    Default 150 CDTi power loss

    Hi folks,

    My 150 has lost quite a bit of power over the last few weeks, i've had it into my local garage and they have said the flexi joint in the exhaust has quite a large blow in it and the egr valve may be something to do with it also! They did a boost leak test and everything was fine there. Also there were no fault codes showing that would cause a loss of power. The turbo still kicks in but it is short lived and the power drops off welll below 3000rpm!
    They never had time to do any work to the car as i needed it back to travel to scotland for xmas, they said it would be fine to drive.
    The 470 mile journey was uneventfull, i got an average of 52mpg with a fully laden car ! Its just the lack of power thats the issue.
    Would the blow in the exhaust be anything to do with it? Lack of backpressure or something?

    The car is still under warranty till Feb the 11th and the dealer is happy for another garage to do work as long as i get a quote first!
