I don't know what to believe, as several answers have been given.... MAF, pedal sensor, Fuel line weakness, etc.. It starts ok, as new starter motor, battery, alternator and glow plugs have just been fitted. It also had recent fuel/air filters and oil change.
Anyway, may be a waste of time and money but I'm booked into Fords for a £75 diagnostics check which may not show any codes, or may open a big can of worms. If no codes come up what next. Anything positive welcomed.

I'll see what comes up on Diag now that I've booked in but I'll get garage to look at hoses as It's worth a try.

Perhaps the turbo is not boosting as it should, or the engine is clogged/ restricted in some way (eg - the DPF or cat)
You can obtain a code reader online for about £22 (F-super) that can read your fault codes (much cheaper than a garage- boes the same job)
Is this the PSA engine or the old Ford engine as used in Focuses etc and does it have a DPF and is it euro 3, 4, or 5?
