    Default Heeeeelp me please 1.9cdti - changed thermostat now limp home!!

    Please help guys,

    I just replaced the thermostat on my 1.9cdti (120), its gone from not heating up at all to going upto 85 degrees and having no power and not revving above 3200 rpm.

    Only thing i can think of is i removed the vac pump. when i re-attached it i forgot a screw and oil was 'drooling' out, as soon as i noticed it(just idling the engine, hadn't driven it yet).

    I guess its off to vx as i dont have opcom and the paperclip test doesn't work.

    Help me i cannot afford this

    Have you checked everything you'd un screwed has been properly tightened and no hoses are only 1/2 on? If all that's fine then try disconnecting the battery for 15 mins to allow the ecu to reset. If that dunt work I'm out of ideas.

    do you get limp home mode straight away or only as the car comes up to temperature?
