    Default Wee update

    After cleaning out the boost pressure sensor last night there was a slight improvement on the performance of the car.

    But after giving the EGR valve a quick clean tonight and some excessive revving while the car is stationery, there is very little black smoke from the exhaust

    I've had the car on a good run, driving it quite hard and i must say it certainly takes off much quicker than before. I'm going to run a fuel system cleaner through the tank then take it up the road where the spanner light always appears to see how it goes.

    My tech 2 reader came today but i haven't got round to using it yet, but i'll post up when i do

    The light came back on tonight and limp mode kicked in so there's obviously something else up with the car.

    I'm getting really p*ssed off with it now
