    Question Lost Boost in 5th & 6th??

    HI all

    I've got a bit of a problem with my 1.9CDTi I noticed it yesterday going up the motorway, traverling at about 70 in 6th and wanted to get past a few car's put my foot down and nothing I just got 0.3 of boost on the gadge noumaly when I put my foot down it takes of really well. This is only happening in 5th & 6th till it gets to 2500rpm it starts to pull but not as hard as it should??

    1st,2nd,3rd & 4th it seams to be over boosting so not shore, Might be the EGR, just wondered if anyone esle has had this sort of problem?

    If you want to head over this way for a diagnostic readout Jon, feel free. I'm around today if you wanted it ASAP.

    No worries m8, and good to talk to you at the weekend. I'd forgotten you were still under warranty so just chuck it back at 'em and get it sorted.

    Oh cack!

    Bit bizarre how it's only in 5th and 6th!

    Your not using it enough, that's the problem! Needs a good cleanout!

    And unusual for a dealership to pick up your car. You sure you trust them with it?

    Fingers crossed chap!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    I think you might be right Paul the car dosn't get used that much but when I do use it's all motorway

    As for the dealer picking the car up and trusting them with my pride & joy, umm not really I used to work there I'll be worrying sick tomorrow cos I'm a tart

    Oh well lets see what happens!

I've not given it a run yet as I've only just come home from work and the roads are really bad due to the wether. So will give it a good run tomorrow I'm just hoping it's sorted!! I will let you know
