For approx a month I was experiencing a loss of power at about 2000 to 2500 rpm in any gear. This seamed to happen 5 minutes from cold every day and would not repeat itself when the car had warmed up. Having the idea from your forum about the EGR valve becoming clogged up. I was going to look at this but found I had little time to spend on this so I got the car into Renaults.
The result was an EGR valve that needed cleaning for the cost of £147.94.
In future I think I will include the cleaning of this item and hoses, when I service the car, perhaps around the 54k mark. This fault appeared at 89k.
So far the car runs fine, early to tell, but hoping.
