Am hoping someone can help me with some good advice as I don't know much about cars at all unfortunately. I have a mk3 mondeo 2.0 TDCI 115 and it's a 2005 05 model.
If I start the car from cold it starts fine and runs fine and if it's a coldish day I have no problems.
However if I restart the engine whilst it's still warm I get the flashing glow plug light and the car goes into limp mode. Once I Let the engine cool down and restart it it's fine.
Also if it's a particularly hot day I am finding that once it gets warm the glow plug light is coming on while I'm driving. I'd guess it will do the same on a cold day if it driven far enough to get warm.
It's been on diagnostics and is a P132B which suggests it's a fault with the rotary electric actuator on the turbo. Which means a whole new turbocharger at mega bucks - and with just having my 2nd child I don't have a chance of fixing
I'm sceptical that's it's even the turbo to be honest as it's only happening if it's warm.
Can anyone advise please? Has anyone had this problem before and what was the outcome?
