Could be a number of things. When was it last serviced? Is it petrol or diesel.

Fuel filter, air filter and plugs come to mind initially.

It`s diesel, changed filters and plugs about 9 000 miles ago

I think you defiantly needs a service after that many miles?

What model is the galaxy and what year?

Any signs or messages on the dashboard ?
