Has anyone had experience of the 2007 1.8 Diesel S-max chugging, and loosing power... (could not even overtake a lorry on the climbing lane going at 40 mph) across all gears (except 1st) above about 2000 revs? This has started with me after I drive the car for about 30 mins or more.... once the engine has warmed up. I have parked the car and am hoping to get it to a ford garage this week for diagnotic.

Have something to contribute?

When my A3 did the same it was the diesel particulate filter on the exhaust.

could be injectors and its in limp mode even a bdly blocked diesel filter or a sensor i think diagnostics is the best bet
