    Default 2.0 dti EML light,sounds like it is running on 2 pots

    04 plate 2.0 Dti
    The spanner light comes on cuts out or sounds like it is running on 2 pots.
    Happens completely at random I turn it off and on till it starts as normal, dose this two or 3 times a day

    some time it will not start so I had to pull the a vacuum pipe out,
    And put in to limp mode to start it at last i can get where i am going.
    Had the fault readers on it and
    no fault shown each time even when it was happening.
    EGR has been off and cleaned still the same?????

    with all due respect mate, you haven't left many details on what car you have or what engine?? How about popping onto the introdutions area & saying hi, tell us more about you & your motor/s??
    I am sure you'll receive a warm welcome there.

    I always find good manners get you a longer way tbh.

    It was mitch, people just come here spurt off details and expect someone to produce a solution for them. Your just right imho maybe if the post had went

    Hi guy new one here and I hope someone can help me, the spanner light comes on cuts out or sounds like it is running on 2 pots and it does this completely at random I turn it off and on till it starts as normal, dose this two or 3 times a day. Its driving me crazy. Sometimes if I take a vacuum pipe out and put in to limp mode to start it at last i can get where i am going. I have tried cleaning the EGR valve and have put it on a code reader but no codes showed up. Your help would be greatly welcomed. Thanks

    Or possibly a restriction on noobs getting into the tech side of the forum?? Maybe i'm old fashioned & have been bought up with good manners, instead of expecting something, then "off into the night" without saying thanks?? Bsd, come to mind, but then again I'm a moderator on a n other forum.

    We were all noobs one upon a time and i'm sure we've all needed help,all though he could of posted a bit more info i feel the reception he's had is far from a friendly,there's no rules stating he has to say please and thank you, all though it does go along way as stated.
    So if you's are finished with the lessons in manners maybe someone can post something a bit more constructive .

    Not picking on anyone its just the first thread ive seen since being here that's had this sort of reaction and its not what this forums about
