Help needed, loss of power!

Post by Generous182 » Mon Feb 04, 2019 4:45 pm

2008 caddy 1.9tdi 70k. Had the van over a year now with no problems until today, was driving home from work and had a lack of power. The power would come back but then drop off again. It seem to be intermittent.

Any advice on what could be wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any management lights up or coil light flash , any leeks under the bonnet, smell of diesel , loss of power can have a lot of courses, have you got or no someone with vcds or a scanner,this could bring up an explination to your lack of power 👍

No lights on the dash! Will have a proper look under the bonnet after dinner.

My mechanic is on holiday for a week so will be next week before I get it on the computer!.
