  4. Faults CDTI: No power turbo. Very slow acceleration

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hi all, My CDTI 2.2 06 has lost nearly all its power yesterday since it, I assume, had an unscheduled impact with the ground (drove to fast up a steep driveway). When I rev the engine over 2500 - 3000 rpm I can feel the turbo kick in but it feels like I have lost about 50% of the performance...

  6. Faults Low power in 1st & 2nd and sounds like a van

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    I've had an ongoing issue with getting a code for 'P2004 Intake Manifold Runner Control Valve, incorrect position' which goes away on it's own if it's left for a hundred miles or so but comes back as soon as I clear the error code history. I'm guessing that codes shouldn't just go off from the...
