Loss of power 156 2.4jtd 98000 mls 136bhp
This is my first post and I hope that there is someone out there who can point me in the right direction with the problem that I have encountered.
While driving my 156 2.4 jtd yesterday whilst overtaking there was a small pop sound and the engine management light came on. There was also a loss of power with the limit of 2500 rpm reached before a rev limiter appeared to be applied. I assume that the car had been put into limp mode by the ECU.
This happened on the journey home as well, with the added bonus that if I accelerated slowly in each gear I could reach 3000 rpm as a maximum.
Also the rev counter goes up and down in blocks rather than sweeping.
I tried resetting the ECU last night with no effect.
The car did 350 miles on the motorway the day before no problems.
