I have a 2002 laguna tourer 2.2 dci which kept going into limp mode on the motorway or with high revs and having been to my local dealer 3 times, yes 3 times and saying they cannot fix it.
Renault manchester came up trumps firstly they found the fault right away , which incidentley was a faulty EGR valve but to my suprise on picking the car up, they had not only washed it but gave it a mini valet and it smells like brand new inside. hows that for service. it didn't even cost me a penny luckily i have an extended warranty.
I shall be accused of being a prophet of doom but you need to ask yourself why the EGR valve was faulty! In the majority of cases with 2.2dCis it has become gummed up due to oil passing through the turbo seals and then being burnt. The exhaust gases once condensed leave a residue in the EGR valve that causes it to stick.

As such I advise you to keep your ears and eyes open - ears for the sound of a whistling turbo and eyes for smoke. If the engine develops a flat spot or any hesitation get on to your dealer immediately and say that you are concerned about the turbo .

It's better to be safe than sorry !
