    the first thing you need to do is inspect the intercooler hoses for small splits..that would cause the spanner light...get the fault codes read as well to tell you what the fault is if you fin no splits.

    Unhappy spanner light fault fixed!

    well after a visit to the stealers and charging me £39 for reading fault codes then a further £80 because it needed longer on the tech2 to find fault they told me it needed a new throttle body total bill came to £380! touch wood it seems to have fixed it but why should i have to need a new throttle body on a car that has only covered 30,000mls!!! PS its a 2.0dti 2004.
    i have also heard of fuel pumps going on the vec diesels can anyone tell me what engines have the fuel pump problem and from what year,milage covered before they give up the ghost???

    Had this problem last month, on way to Leeds on my 2.2 Dti, spanner on, no turbo. Pulled on to hard shoulder, turned off engine, had a wee! Got back to car started fine no spanner and has been fine since, should i get it checked out anyway just in case? Anybody know off an indy that can read CANBUS cars in the black country/birmingham area?

    Mick p, my 2.0 dti is on 117,000 mls, i've seen them with over 200'000 mls and still going strong, the pumps aren't a common problem if you look after them, only use good quality derv like shell and i use millers sport 4 for added lubrication ( oooh missus ), They had a few probs with the earlier ones on the vec B but were improved on the C.
