    Default now i am confused, EML

    Right here goes, forgive simple text but ive really got fed up of typing this. lol

    car is 2003 2.2 dti
    took airbox off replaced with k&N cone, spanner light at 3500k, put back to normal all fine.
    had good idea (HAHAHAHA not my finest hour) of cutting funnel in airbox lid down to try and fit cone within airbox, still not work.
    spanner light still.

    took battery off for 2 hours

    no spanner light within rev counter this time engine light in right hand side.



    reading on here everything points to boost pipes, maf sensor or egr.

    checked all seemed fine.

    still got engine light and limp mode at 3500k

    mackeld together a new funnel and car goes like it used to but.......

    still engine light.

    does this mean there is still a fault or is it just there is a stored fault?
    strange as the car is pulling well again.
    could it really be that fussy over a funnel?

    I really am stumped now

    moral of the story, dont f about with filter that just dont fit.

    Do you mean that the revs slightly increase when you release accel. / change gear ?

    think cars store the fault for a while, and if it dont re-occur then it will go out eventually.

    yes when driving say 30mph and take car out of gear the needle sits just above 1000rpm then if you slow to a stop the revs drop once you stop
