Loss of power 04 1.7 diesel- help gratefully received
First time poster here.
Bought an 04 1.7 diesel civic last year. Great car with no probs at all and recent clean mot. Then driving up M5 sudden loss of power. Could only do low revs in each gear and top speed 60 in 5 th. had to limp back home.
I got rid of a Peugeot 307 diesel having had endless probs with diesel particulate filter and was looking forward to some Honda reliability. However this feels different to the loss of power I had in the Peugeot (which only lost power up hill and went into limp home mode). The civic suddenly lost power and consistently has low revs.
We were en route to Alton Towers so a 2 hour delay was not fun for the children.
Any ideas would be gratefully received. Also I don't know whether to take it to my local very reliable garage or go straight to the Honda dealer.
Many thanks in advance.
