Hi Guys,

I'm a newbie here and I've just bought my first RAV4 and I love it, but I have a problem and would appreciate some advice.

It's a 2005 4 wheel drive diesel manual with 120,000 on the clock. It had a new turbo not too long ago and last week I replaced the EGR valve.
What's occurring is when the car is on the flat, the power comes on and it accelerates well, in fact there was even quite a pull from 75 m.p.h. when I floored the pedal today. However, when the old girl has to climb uphill, I struggle to get up to 40 m.p.h. even in 2nd gear. Today a 16 wheeler overtook me as though I was standing still!:frown
The turbo seems to be working O.K. - it sucks and blows as you would expect. There are no codes coming up when it's plugged in.
Has anyone got any ideas where to look next? I'd be so grateful for any advice.
