I doubt it but it may be blocked so give it a clean.

Yes if you have no idea when it was last done but defo change the fuel filter - at least you know where you are starting from then with your problems.

Ideally you need someone with a mechanics ear to listen to the rattling i suspect thats your next port of call. I would look for an old boy like me who grew up diaging problems with his ear. Next it would be to plug in to a diagnostic machine.

At 97k thats quite low mileage as the 1.9 is capable of 300k+ if looked after.

Does it run fine otherwise ?

Try injector cleaner just in case ( long shot )

EGR rattling ? easy to remove to check, when off blank to two vacuum lines to disable it.

Do you do any spannering ?
