Could be fuel pump on its way out or injectors. 3krpm in a diesel is very hard driving. I normally aim to change up by 2000-2500 rpm, dont forget the TDDi "redlines" at just over 4000rpm

the electric feed pump near the fuel tank. is the culprit so it is indeed fuel pump related and not the timing ive scoured the internet and all codes p0149 were resolved by replacing this part.

You didnt by any chance put petrol in it, a diesel will usualy run with a fair petrol to diesel mix but they smoke have no power and are hard starting.
