    Default car going into limp mode 1.9 150

    Right this is gonna sound random so i will do my best to explain it. basically since i bought the car i have had problems with it. now the injectors are sorted the car keeps loosing power sometimes the emission light comes on sometimes it doesnt there's no set speed/rev range where this happens. but its as if the turbo shuts down, the only reason i think the possibility its the turbo is i have had the same with my 1.7 corsa and that was the turbo knackered. anyone had similar problems??

    am i on the right line and if so is replacing the turbo a relatively straight forward job, if so i want to try it for my self, the intercooler was replaced about 6 months ago if that makes a difference

    Mate- before you change any hardware - get the codes read. otherwise you could be changing stuff like turbo's etc for lots of £££ when not needed.

    I would look at the EGR Valve after 1st checking the codes. Check EGR , 3rd Injector, Inlet Manifold and DPF if fitted.

    thanks guys will get it read in the next few weeks im in no rush as going to start treatment soon again 3rd injector is fine (all 4 are) im pretty sure this one doesnt have a DPF as it kicks out smoke all the time under load. will pull off the EGR again friday and give it a quick clean out.

    Just check if your car is fitted with dpf filter (0.5 on door sticker) if so driving with blanked egr will kill it very soon. It did on mine so I ended up removing it as well

    I had the same issue with mine, the problem turned out to be broken boost pipes. Check yours for splits around the bends.
