    Start off with a code reader. But thoughts are;

    1. Probably duff glowplug, check resistance with multimeter.

    2. Not sure, could be a regen??

    3. If it sounds like a cow mooing, probably boost control valve. Parts about ?50. 10 minute job. Located on slam panel sliggt right of centre when you open the bonnet.

          Just check the boost pipe. If there is a split, extra soot will block the DPF very soon!

            There are two rubber boost pipes. One is running from the turbo to the bottom of the intercooler. And the second one from the bottom of the intercooler and connects to the plastic intake manifold pipe with special clip. Mostly splits are under that clip

            41mpg i would say it's normal.
