Hi there, am new to the forum and in need of some serious advice.
At the moment, I am on holiday in Turkey for two weeks.
What can be so bad you ask???
Well, on Sunday, I had to drive the family to Manchester airport to fly out.
We have a 2006 520d M Sport, with just over 120,000 miles which honestly did still drive like a new car. Full maind sealer service and no expense spared.
Approx 110 miles, into a 240 mile journey, I stopped at services for a comfort break.
However, upon restarting my journey, i noticed a huge lack of power which I took to mean the turbo was not operating.
I really had no option but to continue my journey as we had a flight to catch.
At about 210 miles, an "incresed emissions" warning flashed on the idrive aling with my engine light.
I had to leave the car at the car park for 2 weeks, and have the keys here so I cant even get anyone to look at it.
I also have to drive it home.
Can anyone tell me if they think i may have killed her, and if it will be ok to limp home in 2 weeks.
There is no loss of oil or any sign of physical damage.
Is it possible the DPF filter is clogged? Mass air flow meter?
Hopefully someone can help as its driving me crazy on holiday and I am seriously struggling to relax thinking about how am gonna get the wife and our 7 year old home in a fortnight.
Please help if you can.
Thanks so so much and hope to hear something soon.
