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)

might be the glow plugs on there way out or ones failed, causing cold starts to be lacking power and possibly smokey?
