    Serious lack of power (1.9 TDI 1Z engine) '96 175k miles

    Hi guys,

    Not been on here in a while

    My car over the past week is struggling on the hills on motorways, there doesnt seems to be much go in it anymore, put my foor down and nothing, I can get it up to 70/80 and cruise on the flat/slight hills. There is a serious rattle from the exhaust near the engine but pipes are solid (possible dead/shattered cat'vertor?? and blocking exhaust) really out of my depth.

    Having scoured round the forum Ive found the following....

    Dead Cat'vertor
    Leaking intercooler/pipes

    Any suggestions would be awesome

    On recommendation Ive cleared the codes down and only the Brake switch error reappeared, Ive noticed that all my boost is being vented through the EGR valve, the vacuum line keeps it open under load therefore no boost. Gonna try and get the CC removed, bash out the innards and see how it goes, dont fancy drilling holes in it just to release the pressure.

    Any hints of getting it out as the bolts are rusty and dont fancy snapping one specially the Turbo side.
