I had a water leak issue which turned out to be the EGR cover on the front of the engine. They are made from a brittle plastic, a bit like bakelite and have a tendency to crack on older cars.
As for the power loss, check the top of the lower intercooler hose ( the side nearest to the engine near the top ). These have a tendency to split and will cause power failure particularly when the engine is under load.
