    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 06

    Mileage : 250,000

    Default 1.9 150 CDTI losing power/boost

    My CDTI has been doing some odd things recently.....
    driving along in any gear on a partial throttle and it feel like the engine has lost boost, it is flat, floor it/change down and it feels like the worlds worst turbo lag, eventually the boost comes back, sometimes with a vengance as well
    It doesn't happen all the time, but is becoming more apparent and more frequent, to the point now where it will do it occasionally when pulling up a hill!!

    There are no dash lights coming onto indicate an issue, however i am aware that sometimes you can get MAF issues without the spanner symbol being triggered

    i have checked the small boost pipes, they are ok,

    The car does have 3 known issues currently,
    1) intercooler has a small spilt in it
    2) Turbo is 'screeching' and is due for replacement
    3) swirl flap actuator doesn't always work ( being replaced on tuesday)

    The car has done over 200,000 miles, still pulls like a a 150 should and has no other knocks bangs or issues, its just slightly worrying that every know and again there is this power loss.

    any ideas
