    I have seen two people with similar problem I thought was limp mode - was EGR, think one of them was Mark?

    An engine overheat will cause Limp Mode.

    It's not overheating, but something to watch for in the future.

    No, but you do need to stop PDQ:eek: I had just overtaken a truck on a hill and pulled up at the traffic lights, when the lights turned green it pulled away, but only just. Pulled over and waited for the steam to subside and limped it into the supermarket car park. Hired a trailer and picked it up later in the day, just goes to show that having 2 P38's is a good idea:rolleyes::D:D

    There was quite a bit of resistance on mine. I couldn't get that plug out then finally..........pop! Out it came. Your mileage may vary though :D

    That limp mode is worse than forgetting to plug MAP in - you will not drive it far like that.

    Speak of the devil, just coming back from the bank and the "no boost" issue pops up!
    Pulled over, left the engine running and unplugged the MAF sensor. Pulled away with plenty of boost.
    I then pulled over again, engine running and plugged it back in.
    Pulled away and bingo..........
    It was like there was no problem with it in the first place??
    Stupid cow....:mad:

    wonder how long it will take to play up again? unplugging/replugging once every few weeks is not end of the world to live with.
    Annoying though I bet

    Thank the lord for pre EGR’s :D:) (that still pass modern emissions)
    Crazy bureaucrats fitting nonsense to our Landys :rolleyes:

    They don't really check emissions on diesels, just smoke. However your pre EGR P38 will be banned from many cities in Europe.

    Wish I I had a MAF to unplug . Personally I'm going back to basics, new fuel and air filters ordered and will check the turbo waste gate linkage if the weather stays fine.;)
