Your diesel is turbocharged - follow the piping to the intercooler and make sure the hoses haven't come off. I'm on the UK PTCruiser site, and they call their diesels "tractors" there, anyway, there have been several who noted the piping to the intercooler came loose, with substantial loss of power.
