    Default help needed in paisley, glasgow area

    got a serious problem with my 120 8v diesel, total lack of power, top intercooler hose sucking flat above 1800 rpm, full of oil, already had someone replace egr valve and had the cat knocked out, originally thought it was the cat, because the back pipe was cold and black soot was coming from the flexi pipe, then changed egr, then new silicon intercooler hose, still no better, im not too tech savy, but im guessing its to do with the turbo, cars eating a litre of oill every week, tried a vauxhall specialist but they wont help because the cat been knocked out, so getting desperate, really need someone in glasgow or paisley who i can take it to, thanks in advance...

    Black soot is usually a sign the EGR valve has stuck
    When does it occur (applying power, during power, or after removing power)
    Why was the cat removed?
    Were both removed at the same time?

    Extremely unusual for a cat to fail on a diesel, usually the rest of the exhaust will go first

    Which engine warning light is it? The spanner in the rev counter or the yellow one next to the fuel tank warning?
    When it comes on, does the engine go into Safe Mode?
    If Safe Mode activates, how long does it stay on for?
