Year of Manufacture *: 2003|
Engine Size and Code *: 2.9 CRDI
( Optional ) Scanner Used: multiscan
Car brought in for lack of power, suspected turbo fault.
I took this for a drive with multiscan connected, drove fine for first mile then as I got on to motorway it lost power, had to limp it off the motorway at idle on the hard shoulder.
It would start and idle fine, but no response from acc. pedal at all. just by chance I noticed the radiator fan on but no hot air coming from it, turns out, next to no coolant in there, temperature gauge showed three quarters, so for protection when it gets this hot it cuts the power and doesn't log any fault codes. Filled up with coolant and fault fixed.
