    this a description of my problem, wonder if you could help. 320 couple diesel. 120k

    (problem1) Car went in to limp mode, no acceleration on motorway after crusing along for over 100 miles.

    Pulled onto hard shoulder, restarted engine and fine until roughly week later when pulled into my estate and (problem 2) lost complete power in 2nd gear and the engine was rattling like it was going to fall out, the whole car was shaking.

    I called out the RAC and few codes came up, the main 1 being the air mass flower sensor.

    1st thing the next morning the car started fine and drove perfectly 3 miles to garage to have new air mass flow sensor. (160 german sweedish) I was silly and didnt tell the gargae to wipe the codes.

    I assumed all was fine and sorted until that afternoon when i was approaching 100 miles of travelling, when i lost acceleration, (limp mode) and had to pull over again.

    I've since had the car on 2 diagnostic machines where 1 has said vibration code amoungst others and another more reliable machine saying turbo/actuator.

    Can you please help, I am at a loss as to the exact problem. Are these 2 problems linked?

    Some 1 please help

    Welcome.
    Sell the car and move to Merthyr T.
    Put some oil in boyo.

    (I was born close to your neck of the woods so don't take things to seriously )

    Apart from that, I have nothing to offer.
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.
