    Default Intermittant limp mode....HELP!!

    Hi guys!! I own a 52 plate vectra c 2.0 DTI. Just recently, as i'm driving, the car will fall into limp mode and sounds like all boost is being vented too. But after a while, it will go normal. But then eventually revert to a point the engine starts dying!!

    I've tried cleaning the map and egr sensors....any other ideas what it could be??

    I was considering buying a tech 2 laptop-based scanner on the cheap.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/OBD2-OBD-2-Tec...item4cf2fcfafe

    But is there anything I should consider before buying?? Do regular tech 2's work on half / full canbus cars?? Mine is half, but i'd like to know I could use it on a variety of others!!

    Thanks
    Nic

    ok.....also! Just downloaded free tech 2 to use with a compatable obd lead....

    Follow the above link and click on the download link at the bottom of the page. Save the file and unzip it to use. I'm gonna give it a bash later and get back with a seperate thread if its any good...looks like a basic reader at first glance...
