I'm not so sure Jimmy. These can be fickle things when they want.

Listen, just humour me and get that fuel filter changed first. I've seen really good mechanics arse about for days and spend vast quanitities of money before finding the filter was the cause.

After you've done that (and I really don't want to discuss this much further until you do), we will get into the other possibilities but you need to change that filter then clear those code while we see what is really going on. This could be SCVs but lets see what we've got after doing the above. I will pm my phone number as we can discuss an awful lot while I'm trying to type!

ordered fuel filter of ebay should be here tuesday, just had codes cleared
had to disconnect pipe from vsv for it to drive but seems a bit more get up and go when you give it some gas, probably down to the new maf i just put on !
at 1 point it felt like it was flying turbo coming in nicely then hit 65 mph and power go's
thanks for all the info and will be back once i changed the fuel filter and as you say we can go from there
cheers

Order a tin of BG244 off amazon Jim. It needs to go in a full tank of fuel them when you are down to quarter full, give it a proper thrashing up a good hill when the engine is hot. It will burn off a good amount of carbon and MAY free off the EGR.

Treat supermarket diesel like larks vomit. Branded fuel only and preferably high grade which is laced with detergents.

These are just preventative. You may have to do a bit more after the filter is changed.

I'll try it as well - I am sure Don has the same issue as I do and it is REALLY ANNOYING!

afternoon gentlemen

pdf shown is different to mine there are two vsv one brown one black , tested brown vsv from ports E-G AND G-E , air can be blown both directions until you apply volltage and visa versa applying voltage air blows out of filter , so if air can be blown with no voltage would this be my problem , tried the wd40 treatment still the same .
any testing info for the actuator vsv as this is different from the later ?

have removed ( fuel filter ) ready for new one to be delivered and didnt realise there was a float type sensor that connected to the bottom of it, so apologise for the comment !! cleaned particles of metal from sliding float area, was wondering if the float has a metal ring inside that makes the contact inside the filter and is that where the metal particals are from ?? or from the fuel pump not that im worried about that at the moment

thanks again hope you all had a good weekend less hangovers

Probably some crap from the tank. The float detracts water and puts a light up on the dash. It's more for third world countries where fuel contamination is likely. You could open that little tap and drain it off without taking the filter off. I will see what other PDFs I've got when I'm at home.
