Most diesel fuel systems will revert to standard back up settings and perform the way you describe if one of the sensors gives problems. It is almost certainly a sensor or connector issue.


Unfortunately, the computer on these cars doesn't seem great at logging the fault! On my 1.6 I had a known, but rare, issue where sometimes shortly after starting, the engine would cut back to it's "limp home" settings. That turned out to be air in the fuel line causing a momentary drop in fuel pressure. The fuel system knew it & acted, but the computer never logged it!



Although you shouldn't need to, it might be worth contacting a Bosch specialist to see if they can advise as its a fairly standard Bosch system.
