Errr...was that Limp Mode?
I've just driven my Brera home from work (07 2.4JTDM), and after dropping a gear and hitting the gas to overtake a lorry, I notice da lot of white smoke come out the back, which quickly disappeared after taking my foot off. However, the car would then not rev freely, or at least, it would rev, but the car would not pull, regardless of gear, with snail-like acceleration to about 55mph.
It stayed like this for about 5 mins, with me trying to 'free-up' the system by dropping and revving slightly. It then seemed to clear itself and revved and pulled fine for the last couple of miles home. Did I get a 'limp mode' situation, that then rectified itself? I had no warning lights/messages.
My journey's are typicaly sitting at 50-60 in 6th on a 26 mile round trip, with frequent, short journey's in between.
DPF problem that blasted itself out? It had a new EGR in the last couple of months and although I've done approx 1500 miles in the last month (inc a 380mile journey) I haven't noticed a regen.
