Absolutely, though even cheap Chinese can work and can give you basic troubleshooting capabilities, more than you may have otherwise. If you find any good links, feel free to share them here

This may be the wrong place to ask, perhaps I should enter a new post but do we discuss ECU remapping via OBD. I realise you need bits of kit also prog for laptop and a knowledge of what improvements to make and when not to 'improve'. Is this subjuct the the domain of tuning Shops and specialists.

I saw this item on the bay.

Mod move if necessary.

there are kits which claim to allow you to remap, but I personally wouldn't, its not like a "go faster" switch, as you say there is a lot to it.

I dont believe any current members have remapped their cars with such a kit, you are more than welcome to start a heard but I wouldnt expect many replies, beyond taking it to a specialist.

Yes probably best left to the chaps who do this sort of stuff daily. Could end up with a large problem.

Just watching "Supercar Megabuild". They just used Torque to diagnose a Throttle Position Sensor fault on a G Wagon for a build.

Free software for the win!

Good morning Gents,

 Quick bit of background, I've been on the spanners since 1985 but mainly on plant, modern cars confuse me a bit, My brother in law has a 2008 smax 2.0 diesel with code P0234,

Car drives lovely up to 70, if he puts his foot down after that it will go into limp home unless he switches in the key off & on again, I have read some bit n pieces online but thought i would ask you fellas,  

Cheers

that can also be triggered if I am not mistaken by a high fuel rail pressure
