    I lost power today, feels like it has lost 70bhp but still runs. There was no smoke, no noise and no dashboard lights just lack of power. Any ideas please. It is a standard 170 with no remaps or mods of any description. If its the turbo please can somebody give me an idea of cheapest fix?

    It could be dpf related given its a 170, so get it scanned to check the soot levels & a regen.
