    Default 2004 2.0DTI limp home AGAIN!

    i was out driving this afternoon and the car went into limp home mode AGAIN!!!
    when it was in limp home it wouldnt rev and the revs were held at around 500rpm, it would come out of limp home if i slowed down/stopped, but i didnt need to turn the ignition off to get it out of limp mode.
    has anyone had a fault or seen a fault similar??
    i cant afford a diagnostic check and the free one on the forum doesnt seem to work with my car!
    cheers, mick

    Check the plastic and rubber pipes for splits. Engine uses vaccum to control quite a few components. Good luck.

    my large boost pipe has a boost gauge connected but im pretty sure it doesnt leak. as for the others i have already checkd all the connections and they are fine, i dont think the plastic pipes have splits in but i havent checked them properly.

    i have just had the car on the diagnostics and got fault code:-
    P0638 - throttle control circuit negative deviation.
    P0638 - electronic throttle sensor circuit high input.

    the garage said its possible that a leaky boost/vacum hose could cause the same fault, or the throttle position sensor could need replacing/resetting.

    im a little confused as to what to do next?? could a main dealer reset the throttle possition sensors and cure the problem?? or do they need replacing? or should i replace the boost/vacum hoses and try that first??

    cheers, mick.

    i just put the car in the garage this morning. i got a fone call at 1300 today saying that it needed a new inlet manifold and a new clutch! the clutch isnt a suprise as it was starting to slip. he said that he could replace both parts by 1500 today and it will cost £1000, £750odd for the clutch and £250odd for the inlet manifold, but he said call it a straight £1000.
    he said the inlet manifold was causing the limp home mode (fault code P0638)! is this possible????
    do you think i will be getting a complete clutch and flywheel for the £750???
    cheers, mick.
