Nothing it happened late last night so i drove it home in limp mode and now at work on the pc looking for answers

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

My car was running poor before i changed the filter so i ordered a new filter and a section / pressure valve. but fitted the filter and all was ok untill now. have not fitted the valve because i didnt need to.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Did it run better with the filter replaced then this issue occurred here?

Is or has the check engine or any other lights come on on the dash at all?

no lights, changed the filter was running fine. it just randomly started doing it. no noise. it has done it before when the dpf light was on and i had to clean it and get the dpf light turned off. but no lights this time. its nearly on 150,000 miles. egr is blocked and has been for 2 years and not had a problem.

O.k.,it is possible debris has made its way into the new fuel filter you put on and is plugging it up again.I have seen debris in the fuel tank work its way into the filter and cause this issue.If you changed the filter for running issues then it ran fine for a short time then started to run poorly again I would see if you can replace the filter again and see if the issue is resolved from there.

If this does not resolve the fault since there is no lights on at all check the engine air filter for being restricted as well as have the fuel system tested to see if you have a weak pump causing this fault or one or more injectors leaking down causing this fault needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
