Talking 2010 2.0Di-D Sportback Power Loss

Hi Everyone, I have a 2010 Lancer Sportback 2.0Di-D, and every morning as soon as the temperature guage starts to rise I experience a loss of power, it feels as though the car is in too high a gear/ the engine is being strangled and cannot rev. There are no warning lights on the dashboard, and if I pull over and just restart the engine, the problem clears. I have had the car looked at by a couple of garages who cannot find anything wrong, also if I start the car from cold at the end of the day to drive home, the problem is not evident.. it only seems to happen when the engine is left overnight. I'm new to owning Diesel engines, but could this be caused by a sticking EGR valve?(I presume it works the same way as on a petrol engine) and does anyone where it is on the Lancer?

any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Apologies if this is a repost of anyone elses problem, but I had a look through the forum and couldn't see a similar post...

Thanks

Jason.

Wrong place to ask, I'm afraid. Ask on VW forum.
Very few diesel Outlanders/Lancers on this forum, barely any.
And even among them there are not only VW but also PSA and Mitsubishi diesels.

I would say your car is highly exotic here.
