    Default Slow to pull away - dangerously slow to pull away (150cdti auto)

    Tried searching......

    My 150cdti auto Sig is slow to pull away & i mean seriously sersiously slow to the point where it's dangerous if i were to pull out in front of another car.

    Any ideas where to start?

    Trim : SRI with added X-Pack

    Engine : 1.9 16v 150

    If its only slow until the turbo kicks in it sounds like an egr fault, if it's slow all though the rev range it sounds like a blocked dpf
