I have just replaced my EGR valve last weekend because the car kept going into limp mode.This happened on a couple of occasions so,seeing as the car has 93k on the clock,I thought it was worth doing.However,it happened again then went back to normal running.
Yesterday my wife drove to Birmingham Airport from the Manchester area with no issues whatsoever.Then,today, after going into Manchester town centre it went into limp mode.First the spanner light then the EML came on and stayed on.
When I coded it I got P2279,Air intake leak,and on driving the car around the estate,could tell it was still in limp mode.I cleared the codes and reset the EML and it drove normally!!.No problems whatsoever.
Can anyone help in what might be the problem?.I would be eternally grateful.
