FREELANDER 2 LOOSING POWER !!! HELP !!!

Hi im new to this forum and looking for some help, i have a 2013 Freelander 2 Dynamic Td4 Auto iv been having a problem with loosing power/acceleration. Basically the car runs fine for the first 15/20mins but as soon as the car warms up thats when the power drops and gets reallt sluggish setting off from a stand still it really struggles but will eventually get upto speed once i get past 30mph but as you can imagine pulling out from a junction on a hill once the power has gone is near impossible especially trying to get upto the speed of traffic. I have had the car in at an independent land rover ‘specialist’ who have plugged to car in for faults but it is showing no fault codes, they then tryed to manually diagnose which they couldnt, the turbo pipes have been changed aswell, then they checked the system for blockages which there was none then they did a terra clean which didnt help eather, all of this iv had to pay for and the car is no better off. Now they want to take the turbo and send it to a specialist to check it, they want to literally take everything apart at my expense which im not happy with so have picked it up as they have had it for 4 weeks and i have over £700 down with them and the car is no better off.

Please say someone has had this problem and knows the solution i would be great for any suggestions and advice.

thanks guys

Heres a video

In my experience it is the fuel filter.

Have you recently changed the fuel filter for a non LR part as this will give a similar problem.

Dont assume Terraclean has cleared everything.

From Terraclean's website:
A standard TerraClean will clean through EGR & DPF systems if there is adequate air-flow. BUT a standard TerraClean is a preventative maintenance service, most of our dealers also own specific TerraClean tools for cleaning EGR & DPF and these can be used to unblock most units. If the unit is blocked with ASH, which no on-vehicle service can remove, all TerraClean service centres have access to a return to base service which will remove ash from the unit. What we recommend is that you always have a chat with your local TerraClean centre if you are being advised to replace your DPF unit, they are expensive and we consider that most are replaced when they can be cleaned. This is due to lack of knowledge and training. We make excellent technical training available to TerraClean technicians. We also recommend that you do not have a DPF removed permanently they are there for a reason and without the DPF your vehicle is emitting harmful particles into highly populated areas.

Did they remove the EGR and physically clear out any ash deposits ? Is the EGR valve stuck ? Jules

Change the fuel filter - genuine only and see what that does.
