  1. ok. so now I have had the code read... P1288 CYLINDER HEAD TEMP. SENSOR OUT OF SELFTEST RANGE Any ideas anybody? Thanks, Lee
  2. I have a 04 (2005 reg) 2.0 TDCI 130. Whilst driving happily along the temerature gage will drop and become idle, at this point I lose all turbo/accerleration in the car and I have to turn the ignition off and back on again to gain back power, doing this seems to 'reset' the car until it happens again. I don't get any black smoke from the exhaust but the engine light is constantly on. I'm thinking about taking it to Ford to get hooked up to their computers but that's going to cost an arm & a leg!! I'm not very technical when it comes to cars either, but any advice/guidance would be appreciated. Thanks, Lee
