4X4 has lost its power!

Ok I am no mechanic and I doubt I ever will be but I have a Nissan Terrano 4x4 2.7 turbo deisel that has 55000 miles approx and regulary serviced.

Recently I have had a great reduction in pulling power. Lost it's va va voom!!! If going up a hill not towing it has no guts to it and today with a trailer on a slight gradient was down to first gear but in two wheel drive.

I have had the turbo checked and cleaned the jets, what should I be doing now please

Sure its not the turbo? Blew mine the other day. 0-60 in about 60 seconds now! Going to have to get another Disco I think.

I had water in the one of the sensor wire just behind the grille (drivers side) on my navara and had the same problem, once it dried out all was sorted. I had jetwashed the vehicle the evening before.

Did the mechanic check the turbo and wastegate or just the turbo?
