Default no go above 2000rpm

hi all

coming home today in my 2003 td4. its done 85000

On the motorway for a split second the car started to hold back at about 70 mph. then returned to normal. this happened a couple of times.

then when i came off the motorway and had to acelerate it had little power and wouldnt rev beyond 2000. then it accelerated as normal. in spurts and would then return to the below 2000 rpm scene. like a petrol car with damp ht leads.


i pulled over and called the breakdown company.

whilst waiting for the recovery guy the car started up ok , didnt stall and tickover is normal.

it seemed to be reving freely and definetly over the 2000 rpm mark up top its redline with no smoke from the rear of the car.

the guy dropped the car off and now the car is driving ok, but with a little flat spot when acelerating.

could it be dirt in the fuel. if so then will redex do any good.
if it was dirty fuel would it still rev when not under load.

what sensors could be faulty

i have checked the air intake hoses and they all look fine.

any ideas

could be a lot of things

Check the maf sensor and poss replace with a roveron

Check and replace the depression limiting valve & filter, only £25 from dealer and 30 mins to fit, If it doesnt cure it needs replacing anyway

They have reported similar issues down to this valve

do a search and you should find info on how to replace

hi

disconnected the maf sensor and its much better,

the guy i got the car off gave me a roveron maf thing, he said he had got it but never fitted it cos he thought it was tuning chip which it wasnt.

i didnt want to fit it incase i did any damage, that was 20,000 miles ago.

i part ex the car on friday for another one, so if i leave the maf unplugged will it cause any long term damage.

cheers
