    Default Poorly Cdti V6

    Hi chaps need a little help my 05 plate diesel V6 3.0 auto has gone into limp mode a few times over the past month. It is always when accelerating cold within the first 5 minutes if you a push the car hard ie joining a motorway slip road. Once in limp mode (spanner on the dash)the car struggles to get 30 mph but the problem goes away if the ignition is off for a few minutes. The car can be ok accelerating for a few weeks and gives no indication it has a fault till this point.

    I have used a code reader and it has come up with a code
    C3800 any ideas.

    All codes are on the thread but the ones you have aren't there. I presume you did the pedal test? I think 0000 might just be the light flashing out, as in, no code?

    Your car probably struggles to get to 30mph as it is an Automatic transmission
    I have a similar problem when Safe Mode is applied on mine, but the car does at least still accelerate albeit the revs are higher than I would normally use

    I suspect this is the early signs of EGR failure, very similar symptoms to mine at the end of last year with erratic Safe Mode when accelerating hard, especially when the engine was cold
