    You can't do the paper clip test any more, on the dti the fav fault is holes in the boost pipes.

    No not really. have a look around the engine bay and check all the hoses for splits etc. It may not be that, it could be the boost pressure sensor that needs cleaning, another dit fav. Do a search as I know there are some pics etc on here

    It is even easier now to get fault codes to blink out....


    Press and hold brake pedal and accelerator pedal to floor, turn on ignition to pos 2, release acc pedal and then re-apply, then turn ignition switch off and back to pos 2 keeping both brake and acc pedals down.

    After a short pause the engine symbol blinks out the codes in the normal format.

    It works for my 04 1.8 LS
