    Default Spanner light and loss of power at low revs

    The car: 2005 1.9 CDTI (120)

    The Problem: This morning I put the keys in the ignition and the Spanner light came on (Don't remember it doing this before). The light went off again when the engine was started.

    Now driving to work I seem to have little power below 2000/2500 revs, after that it suddenly launches (well as much as the 1.9 120 can ;-).

    Looking at other threads it seems that the EGR valve probably needs cleaning, but all the posts I have seen relate to the 1.9 150? Is it exactly the same on the 120s???

    Cheers

    Cheers for the reply.

    Is the EGR and the Boost Sensor on the CDTi 120 in the same place as the CDTi 150? Anyone got a picture of the 120?

    OK I have tried to clean the EGR and boost valve but have failed miserably.

    The EGR on the 120 is pretty much in the same place as the 150 but its got two pipes that you need to remove first before you can take the EGR Off. One of the pipes is underneath and I just could not unscrew it so gave up.

    The Boost valve is positioned right in front of the EGR so you need to remove the EGR before geeting at the boost valve.

    Grrr... Looks like I'll have to book the car in.

    Thought i'd better do an update.

    The performance of the car started getting worse and there were some fault codes appearing about the DPF.

    So, I took the car into VX and there were a couple of vacuum hoses split (not sure which ones). They replaced these and cleared the fault codes. It cost £105, a lot less than I though it was gonna cost.

    Now the car has its power back and this fault code has not reappeared.

    Also, its recent trip into the dealer seems to have fixed, touch wood, my cruise control problems???
