    Question spanner light - no turbo?

    just troubleshooting here. the very odd morning going to work the spanner light comes on on the dash and the turbo does not kick in (2.0dti), and i can very slowly make it up to the usual 70-75mph. then when im coming off the motorway it goes off and the car works fine - turbo working etc.

    what could this be? earth? connections ??

    i had the same problem. my 2.0dti went into limp mode, after a few times of this the engine management light stayed solid and the spanner light no longer flashed up but the car would still go into limp mode.
    RAC plugged in their machine & it showed mass air flow malfunction.
    tok it to a garage, they wanted £250 to fix this. bought a sensor for £75 just before i was going to fi tit, took the engine cover off and seen to inch long splits in the intercooler pipe. wrapped aload of duct tape around it & it worked until i bought a new pipe off ebay (£50 instead of £100 from vauxhall)
    have you checked the pipes?

    That's limp mode mate. I had the MAF off when i used the 10k boost on the V6 and had the same symptoms. No turbo (seemingly) low power, limited revs.
