low power

Recommended Posts

Hi, was wondering if anyone could help?

 

My connect has a 1.8 Diesel engine and seems to have very low power until it reaches around 40mph then it sort of kicks in. Ive recently had a full service to try and rule out diesel/air filter causing any problems. Its due to go back in Monday to see what the problem might be.

It sounds like you might be low on compression.  How many miles?  I do not have a diesel, so I don't know what "normal" behavior.  Did it happen all of the sudden?  I suspect the techs will have an answer for you.

When they check it out have the waste gate checked.  If it is not closing tight it will take the turbo longer to spool up and give enough boost.

As davidparker asked Did the problem start recently or has it been around along time.

Check for leaks. I had a leak in boost sensor hose and also a bad boost sensor. No power whatsoever.
