My question doesn't pertain to the plug. But to a random power loss on a 2006 passion for two diesel motor at approx. 100000 km. When starting out it has full power and shifts into second, then loses power and wont shift by itself to third. After I shift it to third it has some power and then seems to float until I shift to the next gear. if I was in 4th gear manually shifting it and put it into auto and step on it, it downshifts with the loss of power. I tried doing the steps to reset the throttle position sensor with no luck. A code for egr valve comes up and possibly the transmission position sensor. Unsure if there is one of those. I read someone had the same kind of problem, changed the egr valve and fuel filter but I guess didn't solve the problem. Any clues on what it might be? It would be muchly appreciated. Thanx
