1.9 TD Xantia 1996 ish. What's happening is that if I accelerate gently all
is OK, if I put my foot down (not necessarily very hard) the car splutters
like it's flooding until the revs reach 3k and black smoke issues forth,
then once 3k revs are reached it takes of like a scalded cat.
I did have a similar problem 3 years ago when I bought it and this may have
been due to a wastegate or something similar. The only reason I wonder
whether it is that, is because in my quest to find why the aircon stopped
working yesterday, I pulled the fuse to the ECU because it also goes to the
A/C cut off relay.
