    Unhappy Oh dear I've broken it

    Oh dear. The engine managment light came on and the spanner symbol, It's on limp mode with a maximum of 2500 revs,50mph and no Turbo. I've noticed white/blue smoke too when I was limping home
    I've left it with the main stealer who say they will ring me later today.
    Any guesses anyone?
    I think I've really broken it this time

    Oh oh, not good. What were you doing at the time? Did something sound like it had gone, or did it just drop into limp mode?

    Just cruising in 5th at about 70mph.
    It's still under warranty and I've just phoned them. It was the mass airflow sensor which I initialy thought, But why the burning trail of oil?
    I'm off to pick it up now so I'll se how the test drive goes.

    That went well.............................NOT!




    I dove about .3 of a mile when the little spanner appears and it looses all power! Limped it back to them and left it running outside, they say"ooh can you bring it back in the morning"!!!
    I've left it with them and await their call tomorow

    Quick update..
    I had no call from them today,so rang them just before close.
    They said it was a turbo hose and it will be in tomorow,but they cant say that I will have the car back tomorow!
    I've just booked the rest of the week off as holiday , Probaply a good move with the fuel panics and the mileage I do.
