Help- Fault Code

8 posts in this topic

Hi

I've a problem with my 2009 1.8td Galaxy, every now and again while driving along 'Engine malfunction' is displayed on the dash and car enters limp mode.Turn car off for 30secs and restart and its back to normal. I've taken it to local garage to get plugged in, Both times the fault code 'Injector no.2 open/broke' comes up. He told me he can't say exactly what this is but next time it happens he will take injector out, get it tested and take it from there.

It's happened again tonight and while I could take it straight to main dealer and get it sorted i'd rather give the work to my local mechanic, but not wanting to be left without the car for long while he traces the problem, so if anyone maybe knew the exact meaning of the fault code that would be great.

Many thanks guys for any replies

not as easy as that im afraid, fault codes dont give exact meanings, its just showing you where the problem is being noticed, not why

the actual code might help give some ideas, dont think ive come accross 'injector open/broke'

the mechanic is probably right

you can monitor the injectors in live data while engine running, but only if you can get the problem to occur.

might pay to do a leak test on all the injectors [i take it we are talking about a diesel] before removing

if you do decide to have it checked out elsewhere, then probably better off with a diesel specialist rather than main dealer,

if its a petrol engine, then problem could be a lot easier to diagnose as it wont need so much specialist equipment

Thanks again Wase16ll.

Yeah its a diesel.

The mechanic said he would take the injector out and send to get tested.
