I have a low engine performance message in my 2008 Volvo S40 1.6 diesel. Why?

The Volvo S40's engine is susceptible to a few issues that are, unfortunately, quite expensive to fix. Without seeing the automobile or message for myself, I'd suspect that it means turbocharger failure due to build up of sludge in the oil supply pipe to the turbo.
You'll need to get the automobile along to a good mechanic to confirm this for you before deciding on how best to remedy it.
