I've read a few strings on this but as others have described, and a common problem it seems, my 07 plate c max 1.8 TDCI is ok at low speeds but loses power when pedal is floored as on a hill or at speed or trying to pass a slower vehicle as if there is fuel starvation but returns when i ease off. I've had sensors cleaned and EGR valve replaced (on this car it comes with the manifold) - big bucks.
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.
