guys, whenever i start to move from stand still the car is very sluggish until it hits the turbo. a few times i have managed to stall it too. just wondering if something is wrong, i have checked it for fault codes and nothing.

Have something to contribute?

Try run a bottle of Magic Bullet through the fuel mate Click Here
it will clean the jets and its not as hard on the engine as redex or STP which can strip oil from internal parts,

other options mate,
take out air filter and clean or replace,
change the location you buy your diesel from and maybe throw 10 of premium fuel in tomorrow to mix with the current stuff


after that im all open to learning mate, :)
