300tdi losing power

Recommended Posts

My 90 is at just over 150k and over the last 6 months I've noticed a slight drop in power.

It's not dramatic but noticeable that I frequently have to use a lower gear than I used to.

It doesn't sound different and it's not producing any noticeable smoke (of any colour!).

Perhaps it's just slowing up a bit in its old age (like me :) )

I know it's all very vague but I thought I'd just ask the team what they thought and if there was anything specific worth investigating.

If you do change the lift pump use genuine - the cheaper pattern parts often fail after only a few months.

Ask me how I know :ph34r:


Delphi should be fine - in fact i thought they were genuine...... (just dont buy Britpart!)
