went to the hospital today, after i was finished jumped in car (06 1.9 tid 150bhp) struggled to start and when it did there was a lot of smoke smelt very oily and no revs.
tried this a number of times over a half a hour just the same.One time message on SID "anti-braking system fault" came up.
called for a breakdown truck and when he arrived an hour later the bugger started and revved its bollocks off (WTF).
the guy put his OBD reader on no faults were found
can anybody please enlighten me to WTF happened
and is worth me getting my own OBD reader
about a month ago i attempted a regen but not sure if it did.
car seems to be running brill again, do you think it could be throwing a sensor fault (no EML)as it did when i first bought it with EML on, but felt just the same(went into limp mode) my car on limp mode would not climb over a pea, then it was a clutch sensor
it will tell you a code and a brief description and you will be able to reset the engine light unless the fault is permanent read pending codes etc
with live data you will read various sensor values and compare that value with another which can give an indication to condition etc although some knowledge here is useful lol
for example a map sensor should read 100kpa = 1bar = atmospheric pressure with ign on but this depends where you are in the country and in relation to sea level so 97-103 give and take would be classed as normal, you can say take readings of the map/maf say a 2k rpmand again compare the 2 against each other to know if one is beginning to fail manufacturers will have set figures and use these tests in workshop conditions, able to read the ect sensor giving the temp the engine is running at ........just a few examples so for £15 the potential possibilities is worth it and the fact if you just reset 1 code and know what is at fault it has paid for itself also giving you ammunition if going to a repair garage
got the obd reader this morning
no codes came up touch wood they never will (wishful thinking)
i decided to order a egr blanking plate with the 10mm hole any thoughts on this would be welcome :thumbsup:
fitted the EGR blanking plate tonight, i can honestly say it feels 10% better which is a lot
better at lower revs and smoother I would totally recommend this bit of kit at £3.45 off ebay and 15 mins to fit
before work this morning i got my mate to rev the engine so i could check the swirlflaps
rod not moving grabbed a screwdriver poked it and it was just lying there.
Dilema car working great apart from a tiny flat spot at 1500 rpm.
So do i try to re-connect or just leave it as it is (probs been like that for ages)
reason i was looking the other day it threw the code p2279 intake air sys leak.......any advice very welcome THANKS
well tried refitting the rod just wasnt having it must be cracked plastic bushes
going to order a new rod with the brass bushes £29
linda the better half has told me it has sometimes struggled at junctions had to engage clutch and build revs up
i think this will be due to the rod been off
updates later when the weather is better,CHEERS
