The warning light is coming on and flashing when I have been driving the car about 10 miles and the car then goes into limp mode. I had a diagnostic test done and it says there is a fault in cylinder 1 and 4 glow plug circuit. I have changed all the glow plugs but it is still doing the same. Please can anyone help ?
wondering if someone can help with an issue i've got. cars not boosting right at all, won't hit limiter whistle driving and struggles to pull. goes into limp mode when i hit 60-70 but goes away when i turn car off and on, got all the boost pipes checked and welded and put back together and a new front mount intercooler. i had the water issue with the car since i've had it so got a pd150 engine dropped in it and hoped that would eliminate both problems, fixed the water issue as it was most likely the head. but got it back and it's still not boosting right and judders when i put the foot down and still going into limp mode. trying to find an n75 valve and the hoses for sale as the only thing that got changed what the engine block and head nothing else. what's people's verdict? and does anyone have n75 valve and hoses for sale? cheers boys x
Hi, new to the diesel/pd130 world! I recently bought a mk1 SE Fabia vrs, I have been told it's around 200bhp. No printout to prove, I bought it from a friend though.
The modifications this has are; PD150 turbo, darkside fmic, darkside hard pipes, egr delete, straight through standard exhaust, 312mm brakes and 256mm rears, new clutch and flywheel (unsure on what brand) and a remap that is copied off his PD160 hybrid Ibiza cupra that he had.
Now if I start the car how it should be done, turning the key, waiting for the lights to go out then starting up, it sometimes starts in limp mode (no boost).
However if I turn the key so the lights go out, flick it back off then turn the car on straight away it starts up fine. He told me it was cos the map sensor doesn't calibrate properly at first.
Can anyone else help me out with this please?
i don't want to be driving the car if it's going to damage it.
Also, should I take it to somewhere like Narco or ##!!##h for a fresh remap putting on?
I need help
My woes continue with the new ride Superb 2 DSG 170 2011 88k. 5 days of no driving took it to work having topped up £10 of Shell standard derv. (See other thread about my requirements for range). Trek is 95 miles at 6am. 6.5 degrees on temperature gauge most of trip today.
The car stats into the journey.
oil temp 70 as does the temp gauge say the same. Again this should have reached 90 like it usually does well before this. Has done this before with some coolant low issues(another thread) that's fine now too.
Anyway 85 miles into journey of gently 70ish cruising I have to slow down for traffic and the glow plug light is flashing and I then notice when accelerating there is a distinct lack of turbo boost. I think this is defianately limp mode. Anyway continued off the motorway at the next junction and into the work car park. Light still flashing no other warnings.
Having read around the net and Briskoda there is a exhaust sensor fault and perhaps other things, like a DSG temperature sensor for the needle issue ?
I am now deeply suspicious that the low temperature and my sedate albeit motorway speed driving today could have been the cause of this ?
Restarting it at work no warning this morning.
Fast forward to 16.30 journey home. Outside temperature 22 according to car. It's up to the 90 on the needle after about 5-10 miles. Decide to drive it in sport a little and run it at 3.5k revs for a mile in a low gear. All the way home mixture of driving motorway sport mode/ drive mode. Stop start traffic. No issues whatsoever ever.
Refueled before parking up at 18.40. Perfect.
Tried to use my simple code reader. Refuses to read the engine code and abs. Airbag ok. Thought I may as well check everything.
So in the absence of a code reader. What am I looking at here ?
