Check the valve clearances - they can close up, and give exactly these symptoms.

Assuming that this is a 1.8TD and not something later; then also check the thin pipe from the inlet manifold to the aneroid unit [round tin thing] on the injection pump. They're well prone to splitting the rubber connector hose between the two. Any splits will spit oil; so if it's all oily - look hard.
