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.

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!!

i once had a car it was gutless and nobody could fathom out why. one day out of pure frustration i put pedal to the metal and BANG the exhaust blew a hole in it. from that moment on it drove great ! turned out the exhaust had collapsed inside and blocking it up, restricting it.

Ultimately, and it may take a few weeks Mick, the engine management light will come on, IIRC. Seems that disconnecting the EGR on these later models, and when the ECU sees a specific set of conditions, it decides something's wrong and on comes the light.
Probably not serious, but the only way to sort this is either reconnect (sounds like not an option for you), or have a remapping company delete the EGR from the ECU software (permanent solution).
