Default Exceleration problem

Hi I'm new to this forum and being a girl I have very little knowledge on cars, My Freelander Td4 02 auto diesel has developed a problem which is usually on excerlating around corners or roundabouts. Its fine on the straight but un responsive when cornering , this only happens intermittantly and responds when you pump the pedal, any ideas (before I get ripped off by the garage ) as to whats causing this. Its quite scary when when you want to pull out into a main road.

td4s are very reliable however they have problems with fuel pumps

this sounds like a fuel related issue

the have two low pressure pumps, and one high pressure (which never goes wrong)

get a garage to investigate

diagnostics should so a lower pressure of around 300-350Kpa

high pressue in the thousands 6000ish
