    Default HELP!! ..2.0dti with spanner through it when warm!!???

    as above.... the car starts fine and runs great until it's up to temp and then it drops into limp mode.

    there is a car with a spanner through it when this happens but no engine warning light.......

    having read all similar threads that I could find- I then checked out the vac pipes and they all seem ok. I also took out the crankshaft sensor and cleaned it(it was minging BTW as was all around it) where the lazy mech had spilled oil from the oil filter housing but it hasn't made any difference.

    I cant read the codes as the pedal test doesn't work on my 03 dti.....

    Any ideas on what it could be??
