    Default Tech2 in West Midlands?

    I don't suppose anyone in the West Midlands has a tech2 at all? My veccie went back into limp home mode again today for the 2nd time in a month. I left it 30 minutes and it was OK again. Cleaned the EGR when it first happened and it seemed fine.

    No warranty so want to try and sort it myself if at all possible.

    My local VX dealer (Stroud) plugs mine in for free.... sells me the parts i need at trade club prices. i truly find, getting friendly (not gay like obviously..) with those at the dealers help massively

    hope its nothing serious or expensive!

    i was very friendly with my local Ford dealer and used to get trade prices etc... but unfortunately i've only had the veccy a couple of months so am not entitled to those privileges with vx yet

    is there any cheapo diagnostic kit i can buy that might tell me what's up with it?

    thanks

    I know a good place in Birmingham mate.

    It's called Autodiagnose, they're on my industrial estate.

    I'm sure they sorted an issue with my old car for the guy who owns it now.

    I'm certain they have Tech 2
