Severe lack of power

Post by mcvpjd3 » Wed Nov 27, 2019 8:57 am

So, had my 1.5 Diesel since June 2018, and I seem to have been fairly lucky so far from what I've read on the forums, but lately I've had some issues. I'm getting the horrible noise when braking in reverse, my heating/cooling fans are now quite noisy, but the worst issue I've had (and it's happened twice now) is a sudden lack of power when under 2000RPM. It's almost like it's only running on 2 cylinders. It shudders and when you press the accelerator (in neutral) it struggles to get about 2.5K RMP. When it does it then seems to run normally, but as soon as it goes back down it struggles again.
When in 1st gear, I struggled to get the car moving without stalling. After a reboot is seemed fine.

I'm going to contact Vauxhall/LexAutolease about it but just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Thanks

Happened again last night and managed to record some video while phone was in it's holder on dashboard. It doesn't do it justice, but you can see the shutter when I try to accelerate. Thought I'd share in case some else gets this.
