No power, the plot thickens!! HELP
Well I have been investigating a complete loss of power a few days ago. Yesterday I had the undertray off, and inspected the lower hose...No Problem, checked the top hose...again no problem, then checked the vacuum hoses coming from the actuator to the VNT, these seemed fine, though one top one appeared to be splitting, so changed this, but still not right.
Anywho, on the way home from work today, and all of a sudden it starts driving properly again!!! I was amazed! But then had to stop to pick up my little girl, and once restarted, the problem has returned.
Just home and got to work on the EGR, got that off and just stripped it down....it's like bloody new in there!!! no problems at all!
So here I am back to square one, the only other thing I see popping up is this MAF, but I can not find the thing and not even sure if it will have any bearing??
Brief history, gave it full beans other night, then all power went! It would still drive but simply no power through the whole rev range, will hit maybe 55 at a push, but nowt from 5th and 6th gear, having to take it up to 50000 revs to get going anywhere. The day after the motor control warning appeared on my dash, and hasn't left since.
Help or suggestions please, I take it from it working again briefly, that something is loose or stuck somewhere???
Thanks for reading
