  8. And how come at idle I can rev to max and not a thing just like normal
  9. Would u say to start with the fuel fitter and are they hard to change never changed a td one
  10. I had thought that too (Or maybe a failing fuel pump) but isn't the throttle of a diesel control by fuel flow (As opposed to a petrol car that is controlled by airflow), and therefore if the flow was restricted (Due to a dirty fuel filter or failing fuel pump) then wouldn't that just prevent the car from accelerating any further, rather than actually cutting out? I guess its not that simple with a turbo car as the fuel flow and airflow need to be in balance, so maybe with the fuel restricted the ECU detects that the mixture is way too lean and therefore cuts the power.... but if this were the case then I'd expect to see a fault code.
  11. It all started with what felt like a slight flat spot a few weeks ago. Today, car started fine, all going well for about 3 miles then suddenly at about 3000 revs a puff of black smoke and complete power loss ( all electrics stayed on ) had to re start engine while rolling down dual carriage way lol. Started first time, all was fine till between 3/4000 revs and same again. No engine fault lights. This car has had a new Egr valve less than 9 months ago, but when that happened, there was engine fault light, and it was in limp mode, this is not the same. Please help, any ideas appreciated. Thanks, Tom.
