LOSS OF POWER WHILE DRIVING

2004 Vauxhall Vectra

Engine Performance problem
2004 Vauxhall Vectra V8 Front Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

HI MATE,
I HAVE GOT THIS VAUXHALL VECTRA 1.9CDTI 8V. IT WAS ALL FINE BUT FROM ABOUT THREE WEEKS, IT LOSES POWER WHILE DRIVING AND THEN IT COMES BACK ON ITSELF SLOWLY. USUALLY IT STARTS WHEN ENGINE IS HOT. SOMETIME WHEN I SET OFF IT PULLS OK BUT THEN DIES OUT STRAIGHT AWAY. I HAVE NOTICED ANOTHER THING THAT WHEN LOSE ITS POWER, CRUISE CONTROL STOPS WORKING AS WELL. BUT WHEN IT GAIN POWER BACK CRUISE CONTROL OK AGAIN. WHEN IT LOSES POWER IT SEEMS VERY ROUGH AS WELL. THERE IS NO SMOKE.
WAITING FOR YOUR EXPERT ADVICE.

Start by having the vehicle plugged into a diagnostic computer to retrieve any fault codes from PCM
