    Default Limp mode is back....

    Less than 100 miles after the DPF has been mapped out the car went back into limp mode - getting codes read tomorrow to see what shows up.
    My basic reader clears the fault but it comes straight back after only a few seconds.
    The engine is the 1.9 150 and has 83k on the clock - checked everything I can see and there is nothing obvious and there are no warning lights - any guesses???

    Just off to get the codes read now - hoping its nothing major as I reckon I will be forking out, even though I've had the thing less than 2 months. Wouldnt the injectors throw up warnings on the dash and shut the engine down like I've heard about?? It does still run a touch lumpy from cold but as soon as I drive it away it smooths out - could possibly be a weak injector - if so what are the costs for a new one in case the trader won't do it out of good will. Thanks

    Just got the car back - after a full diagnostic check there are no codes stored on it - havent driven it since friday so it must have cleared itself, possibly indicating that its an intermittent fault?!?!
    I'm going to take it for a blast later on to get it good and hot and see if it replicates itself. I'll take it straight back if it happens to get the codes read. The mechanic is a decent guy who my family have used for almost 30 years - he said it might have had a hissy fit over the DPF removal but has reset itself and it may never happen again. Heres hoping!!
