Limp Mode


Recommended Posts

Can anbody shed any light onto the problem I'm having the car is a 2006 2.0 tdci 130 last week when driving I was going up a step hill and the car went into limp mode flashing glow plugs...I restarted the car and all was fine then did about 450 miles in it no problems then last Thursday it happened again and I cleared it and the car was fine since then it's doing it all the time I had the AA out who couldn't find a fault code with there reader I decided to look around the forums and first thing I did was clean the egr valve which was full of dirt.I tried the car and same is happening just so you know the car runs really smooth no lumpy tick over etc no white smoke just this limp mode problem soon as I press the throttle the car had new injectors fitted 12 months ago and fuel filter 8 months back and a reconditioned pump according to the paperwork could it be the cam shaft sensor...? As there is a lot on the forums about these failing.Just hoping anybody can suggest anything else before taking it to a garage....thanks

Turbo, matey. I'd put money on it.

Keep the RPM below 2000 if you're still driving around in it until you can get the turbo cleaned - that will prevent the turbo actuator from trying to move the vanes (which are stuck, which is what's causing the problem, I think).

This is all on the assumption that the actual fault code is P132B. Speaking from personal experience.
