Gromit Posted July 25, 2006 Share Posted July 25, 2006 In my quest to find out why my 200tdi was so slow, I've made it much worse. I removed the top plate on the FIP to see if the diaphram was split. Thinking I would remove the diaphram to look at it more closely, I put a spanner on the 10mm nut in the centre of the plate that retains the diaphram and turned before realising my error, and saw the alignment dot on the plate. I turned it back to where I though it might have been, checked the diaphram wasn't split and reassembled. I now have absolutely no power. From idle, flooring the throttle, the revs take about 6-8 seconds to get to full throttle. Max speed in 4th is about 30-40mph. What have I done? many thanks for any info edited to say that power at idle is also nonexistant - letting out the clutch at idle will almost stall it. I could previously pull down trees at idle!!
