My VW Polo 1200 (55 plate), has started to lose power…?

… When I accelerate in second gear the car judders at 25mph. I change gear and it accelerates to about 40mph and then loses power. My mechanic thought it was the cam sensor but that turned out to be wrong……at a cost of £90. Now he says its the timing belt! Do any mechanics out there agree? What do you think it could be?
The car is Diesel.

    diesel or petrol?

    You might want to check your tyre pressures.

    wouldnt go for a belt but try disconnecting the ecu its on the bulkhead at the nearside clean out connection with wd40 leave for 15mins then reconnect had too do this a couple of times with polos seem to have problems with water ingress to the ecu

    if its a diesel it may be the exhaust particulate filter on the manifold

    Change your mechanic go to a VW main dealer/garage and get a full service – it will save you long term grief. Mine is very good and not too expensive
