Fuel filter clogged or dirty-Replace take the old one with so you get the right one from parts personnel. 2. Spark plug gap wrong or bad wires-take old with. 3. Faulty coil- take with 4. substandard fuel-up grade fuel- try that last. If these don't work I'll be glad to suggest other fixya help these are the cheaper fixes. The next few get to $$$.

Sorry to say there is most likely quite expensive damage to the valve train and pistons. A new cam belt can be installed and the motor rotated to see if it is turning freely after which you would do a compression check (lack of compression will indicate bent or broken valves). I've never seen a diesel break a belt and avoid damage, virtually always a catastrophic failure.

Were there any water leaks into the interior? Or did you ever jump start someone else's car? I had the same exact problem resulting from jump starting a friend's car. It spiked the electronic control unit (ECU) computer. I changed the ECU and the problem was fixed.

Check the catalytic converter, I have the same problem, replaced fuel filter, and crank position sensor, didn't help although the fuel filter was dirty. The car has no power, engine knocks horribly when trying to accelerate up a hill/on ramp. Starts, idles good, lousy power off a stop (should sqawk tires before traction control kicks-in)
