Is the engine management light on ?
If so, get the codes read; if not, then it's something physical - vacuum pipe leak to the turbo actuator, boost pipe leaking, damaged intercooler etc.
Any hissing noises whilst accelerating ?

engine management light was on, not permanently codes showed problem with egr valve had it changed , no difference but light not on anymore. Cab has been with mechanics on 3 seperate occassions and checked vacum etc... all are baffled. My plate expires in mid june dont think i'll bother to renew just throwing good money at it with no answers or hope

Mick, put the question on Turbo Diesel Owners Club forum. Lots of folks on there with experience of 2.0 HDi engine problems.

Default power loss

hi ive got a similar problem on mine.
i`ve got a 2001 2.0hdi expert eurotaxi.
mine was lacking in power as you start off.
i:e when in 1st gear not noticeable, 2nd gear got a boost at 30mph change to 3rd and get a boost at 40 mph when in 4th its about 56 mph.
had engine degreased after having some work done and engine cut out and would`nt start until some 15 minutes later.
found out it was the wiring loom from ecu to engine electrics, jiggled it about and it cut out, give it a run and it was back to normal, then went again.
just waiting to get hold of a loom at moment.
hope this dont sound confusing!!
