Last week I took my 2015 116D in for the recall and had the EGR cooler replaced. Ever since then i've had a significant loss of power - like half my normal power, but not error codes at all.

I've checked the sports display and now the car is topping out at around 60hp if i'm lucky and a 160Nm hard stop of torque. I can now barely keep up with fiat cinquecento!!!! I struggle to get to 60mph and 70mph is now a blessing.

Is it possible that the EGR recall has caused this, or is it bad timing and could be something else?

Check the hoses for leaks…. Or something not re-fitted correctly.
when mine went in for the first Egr recall two years ago the loosely termed ‘mechanic’ broke a hose and instead of replacing it, taped it up for its whole length to make it look good. :mad:
the resulting low mpg took months to find!
I’m still, procrastinating on booking mine in after the last experience for this latest recall.

Agreed, sounds like a boost leak to me, as an initial gut reaction.
