    Ive a 05 tddi connect and it is doing my head in it is sooo sluggish

    Ive fully serviced it, replaced map and maf sensors, intercooler etc and still no joy

    There seems to be something just restricting it someway, my mate has the exact same van, a young older and his is noticable quicker that me, theres no hesitation with his were mine is slow to go and sluggish up the gears

    Anyone have any ideas what could be up?

    Cheers

    How about trying some redex in the fuel to clear all the **** from the injectors and other parts that get a build up of dirt etc in them. This could be a cheap fix to solve the lack of power.

    I have a 2010 connect and it's great, maybe you need to clean egr valves and i would recommend doing a leak back test on injectors. Also i add 2 stroke oil to fuel and it runs alot better and smother, you can read about it online, lots of people do it.

    Is it sluggish all the way through the range or does it suddenly take off when you hit a certain rpm?
    I know you said you'd replaced the MAF, but if it all of a sudden revs up sweet when about 2.5k, I'd still maybe say the wiring to the MAF may be damaged

    Ive tried redex injector cleaner, egr cleaner, turbo cleaner basically nearly every bottle of potion on the auto factors prob spend £100 easy on them and not one helped one bit

    I might try a bit of 2 stoke but i cant see that helping it being sluggish tbh, it drives fine not lumpy or anything just very sluggish going top the revs

    There is no power at all regardless of what revs im on, i switched the maf for a proper genuine working one and made no diff

    Its really bugging the **** out of me now as when im fully loaded each morning its like a snail

    Theres no splilt pipes and the turbo has no play but i might take of the whole intake manifold to inspect to see if its clogged up are something, other than that im close to tourching it tbh

    I once bought a transit tddi
    It was real mint and I thought I'll keep this one!
    Then I drove it...my god it was slow and I mean slow only reason sold it on
    Are you not sure that the van is fine?

    I do know that these are prone for the egr valves blocking and inlet manifold
    It's quite easy job replacing and cleaning
    Makes big difference
    I've just got lad who works for me a van and first thing I did was egr blank
    It doesn't have a dpf has its to old
    Makes a big difference to the running

    Son has a Peugeot Partner hdi and that was dead a few years back. Turned out to be the back exhaust silencer/box that was blocked.
