Exclamation GP 1.3JTD more issues, what to do?

Hi all,

well, if you've seen my newbie post you'll know that i had a number of issues with this car. but to get to the point
1.3 jtd '07' GP 68000 otc, bought in June had it 2 days and then when back to the garage for 3 weeks, to have;
new battery
new alternator
new fuel pressure switch
new turbo
plus various pipes etc replaced.

any way, had her back for 3 weeks, all running fine. lovely drive, and enjoy the little punch of the turbo.
However, tonight whilst driving home, power loss in 4th, but when i applied foot to pedal the revs increased but no more speed
so i drop gear and a further power decrease, all the way to second then she very slowly starts increasing, but when it gets to 2500-3000 revs NO turbo kick????

please. please help.

If revs increased but no speed that says clutch slip to me buddy. Sounds daft but stall it on purpose to test it

Sam, many thanks

so i've just been out, she's going but it's like she's in "limp" mode (but no ECU light). can't get the rev's above 2500, can get through the gears and get her upto 45-50mph but she's struggling.

Having looked through the forum, and with everything else that she's had replaced is it possible that its an EGR fault

as when the rest of the work was done, there was no mention of them doing anything to it.
