Hello, sorry my first posts are going to be problems, got the Signum last weekend as I need to start driving up from Man to Edinburgh quite frequently in the coming months with the first trip tomorrow (with an added Glasgow in there too so 470 mile round trip)
I sold my old Toyota MR2 as it would probably have killed me and so far teh Siggy has been fun with only minor probs like air-con etc which I'll get fixed on the dealers warranty.
Last night, however, I got the car and spanner light and revs limited to 2k which was fun going over Barton Bridge (for anyone that know the area). I'd been on the M60 for 10 miles fine, then pulled off to call in a shop so around 2 miles of stop start 0-30 mph, then as I was on the roundabout to join the M60 again with no choice but to carry on it showed the light and limped home.
Started the engine again after ten minutes and all was fine as it was on the drive to work this morning.
I've read and read and read all the posts and how2s and plan a good old sensor clean up and also plan on getting an OBD2 reader but what does everyone think about tomorrow's trip? I don't particularly have a choice as I have two places to be in Edinburgh and 1 in Glasgow leaving a lot of disappointed people and probably won't get paid for the day and will only have to do it next week instead.
Without knowing the codes, is it actually a blessing that I'll be on cruise at 2k revs on the M6 for hours or should I go A roads as soon as poss and keep the rev range all over the place?
Is it ok to drive until it happens again then pull over, cool down a bit, stretch my legs then set off again hopefully cleared? I mean, I assume I'm not going to damage it, that being the whole point of the aggressive limp home mode.
Thanks in advance.
