JTDm - Sudden Loss Of Power
Today my 2008 147 JTDm suffered a sudden and dramatic loss in power. The engine sounded fine, and there was no smoke coming from the exhaust, but the car could hardly accelerate at all and in neutral with the accelerator flat to the floor the revs wouldn't go over 3200 rpm.
The engine was stopped & re-started it's been running fine since, but I now have the Motor Control System Failure message come up every time I start the car and the yellow engine light is on constantly.
Any ideas what the problem might be?
