Okay so the problem is with my stepdads 1.9 turbo diesel 2004 T5 van I don't drive them. He said the power is fine until then engine has warmed up (until some time of lockout occurs) I think it may be over boosting but I cannot be sure. He can pull through the rev ranges for a bit then just looses all power. Fault diagnostics show nothing.

He does a lot of motorway driving and finds he cannot ascend over 60mph. I have some pictures of where I feel the problem lies. what is this part and what can I do to maybe fix it?






Cheers, Ryan

That is the egr and u need to take it off and clean it out by the looks of it it is well stuffed up
Any help on how to do this? just whip all the pipes out and ram my fingers in there with some WD40? or will it need to be removed?

Once you've cleaned it out together with the ducts to/from it, just blank it off, the 2004 models shouldn't need the EGR "switching OFF" in the ECU. Then you should never have this problem again !
