    Default 1.9cdti 150 Slow take off

    is this normal,
    set off in 1st gear, and it seems to take a few seconds for the power to go in, runs ok after this with no loss of power.
    Just a bit worrying when pulling out at junctions and roundabouts.

    sounds like you need to clean out your EGR valve, and clean the boost sensor mate

    Unfortunately its a manual, i intend to do the egr this weekend.
    Is the boost sensor part of the EGR, or is there another HOW2 section for this.

    boost sensor is not part of EGR, it is a little black box to the left of egr valve

    do a search for boost sensor for how too, but i think you will find your egr is full of kak
