Check the turbo pipes for internal splitting , this will block air flowing through to the engine. Also check if a catalitic convertor is fitted , this could be blocked.

SOURCE: 91 mazda 323 wont rev out past 2500~3000rpm or idle

hi your problem may be that there is some debri in the main jet in carb that will not let sufficient fuel thro for further accelleration also if this is the cause then carb cleaner will not clear it you will have to physically clear it ? another possiblity ? is the fuel pump/or lines may not be delivering the fuel on demand for more revs ? ie pump / or filter clogged ?

Renplate fault scenic 1.9dci 55plate no power revs only to 2500 revs i do have clear particalate filter warning light on

Seems like the common low fuel pressure issue.

There is a hidden low pressure (3 bar) in line pump on Renault DCi's, I think it is on the passenger side flitch on your year.

Is it cold ( around -3 to +6) where you are?? This kills the inline pump because derv gets thick and glooky causing it to sieze up.

When this happens the HP pump is starved and revs limit to 2500.

Golf 1.9 tdi wont start :-(

Sounds like you have a bad glow plug relay that could cause a power spike and drain your battery,it could also take away power to the fuel pump causing the loss of power.Hope this helps you out some!!
