    Default loosing power

    hi all,
    at the weekend my car decided to loose power under 3000rpm then go like a rocket, it then changed to not going over 3000rpm last night on the way to work, then back to a rocket over 3000rpm today.
    i had already searched this forum for answers and found many.
    now first thing i thought i would try was the egr valve as all was pointing to this. took it off no probs as per how to, it was a little sooty but not too much so cleaned it anyway.
    the difference is unbelievable, anyone who was unsure about doing this need not, its a doddle.
    now i want to clean the boost sensor as part of maintenance but am unsure of its location, can anyone help me. i have a 1.9ctdi 150 pre facelift.

    1 last thing i have a elm327 unit which is a obd tool i am using proscan 5.2 software which connects to the car but does not show any fault codes.
    now i know there is at least 1 cause the em light is on. i know how to reset it by disconnecting the battery but i was wondering if anyone else is using this tool with success.

    I'm not familiar with that tool, but can it read CanBus cars? If it can't then that'll be the problem.
