Hello I'm Wolfgang. I presume that this is a diesel. Correct? Any recent repairs before this issue? Please let me know. Thanks

This is a diesel and no repairs in the last two years. The time belt was replaced two years ago.

When driving and you loose power do you see the glow plug light flash at times?
