Hi Gavin and welcome to the Club.

I would never tell a mechanic what is wrong with a car, and I won't try.

But having had three diesels over 8 years I have found that fuel is a big tester, and the fuel system can get a bit mucky.  I have used various additives -- Diesel magic is a good one and not expensive.

Let us know how you get on.
