sedici power loss

hi , trying to start a new thread in order to get help.
just bought a cheap sedici but it has no power below 3000 rpm when suddenly turbo kicks in and off it goes . I had previously tried a sx4 which had power at low revs through to red line but it was too expensive and only 2wd. Any advice greatly received.

Hi,
it's a JTD in all probability.
Stilo section has the most info on the 2--- to 2006 JTD's,

read and cleared any fault codes..?? could just be something out of spec / calibration.

TBH - if it starts and runs reliably - then it's not too serious

Smile Re: sedici power loss

Got car sorted at weekend - intake manifold blocked with sooty grime as egr valve failed , 4 hours later and all cleaned out and new egr valve fitted ( cost 109 from motor factors , better than 449 quote from fiat dealership ) Car now pulls at all revs.
