Hi.. Just wondering if anyone knows of somewhere local where i can get my passat 1.9 TDI looked at and possibly hooked up to a computer for a bit of diagnosis....

It is being really odd... in that... on first starting it has bugger all power, I can put my foot to the floor, but it still just crawls along, then after a 30 seconds or so , the revs go way up and accelerator starts to work. it is usually ok until the next time it has been parked up... However, I am starting to notice it has less power at the top end of each gear now..

any ideas appreciated, prior to getting badly ripped off by Dane Wirral (again)
