Hi all, have a 52 plate clio dci done 170,000 miles. It has now got major lack of power and smokes like a train!!! It has had a new egr valve which has made it a bit better. Any one got any other ideas. Cheers.

Hi there.

Wow, that's some mileage! How's the car's oil consumption? Am thinking after that distance that perhaps its a case of the piston rings just being worn - this would give low compression = low power.

The EGR valve needing replacement will just be a symptom of this, as excess unburnt gases flow through the exhaust.

I would possibly suggest (based on your reply regarding the oil consumption) a compression test, and be prepared for some new rings.

Paul:)
