    look up paperclip test in the search bar, to work out how to read the fault codes. once you know them post back here and someone will help you diagnose the problem

    hi there,jst before i got to 70mph today took foot of accelarator then gently applied pressure to build up speed.went past 70mph no bother with no engine management light coming on,forgot to say the other day eml light comes on when start engine goes off after 2-3mins at idle and doesnt come on again unless it has not been started for maybe 6-7hrs or overnight.do you think this is still egr valve????

    from my experience sounds like turbo overboosting and slappin u in limp home mode - might just be boost valve get vaux to run 30 quid diag to get fault for u then come back on for advice.
