    Dang. Mine 1.9CDTi 120 has just done the same too. Was coughing a bit at 2000rpm at steady throttle, but seemed OK (ish) whilst accelerating. Maybe a bit sluggish. Just discovered mine has a goosed intercooler. Anyone know how much a new intercooler is from VX?

    Hi boys, just done mine as i had exactly the same fault. £188 from stealers. Fitted it myself as local garage wanted £130 to fit. It's fairly easy, hardest part is getting the front end high enough to slide the intercooler out. if you need any help/ info, just drop me a PM.

    Yeah. £188 from stealers and a pal has offered to fit it for £30. Not worth getting my hands dirty. Happy days.

    Just hope the DPF has not got clogged up. The last few months have only done short journeys... 4 miles each way. Hopefully have it fixed for Friday and then I'll give it a godd motorwya do on Saturday to blow off the cobwebs.

    Out of curiosity, are there any warning lights or anything other signs that suggest the DPF is goosed?

    Cheers,

    Chris
