Re: Anyone got any thoughts on this ?
Sounds to me like the cars in "LIMP" mode, could I ask you what your water temperature is at when your mobile? Things I would suggest trying if you don't have the chance to pull the fault does are, remove the plastic cover and with the engine running, unplug the injectors in turn listening for a drop in engine note, then go through the coil packs disconnecting the suare plug one at a time again listening for the drop in note, if any of those don't drop the idle for a sec then it's at fault. Then still running unplug the lambda and then the MAF, again doing each of those should upset the idle, but it wont stall. Plug them back in. If none of that has nailed it then try a reset, disconnect the battery for 15 minutes, reconnect it and tur the key to MAR for 90 seconds, now turn the key to OFF for 90 seconds, next start the car BUT do not touch any pedals when you do it and let it idle for 5 minutes, after that jump in and take it for agentle spin trying not to pass 3000rpm for 5 minutes, after then you can rag it a bit for 15 minutes, then stop the engine and leave it off for 5 minutes. Now take it for a spin and see if it's improved, it may just need to relearn the values and this may put the smile back on your face.
