Good morning, madam. Have you tried changing the boost sensor? Could get a cheap second hand one from e-Bay and see if that works.

Also, have you checked that your "air filter" isn't clogged up with leaves and dirt?

Thank you, thank you very much.
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
