Turtle Power,

Post by blacksheep69 » Fri Feb 19, 2021 10:03 pm

Anybody else experienced loss of power when cold? Starts OK but when you go to change up into second gear/introduce some load the engine it either cuts out and goes into limp mode or stalls completely. Emits a puff of smoke and then runs in limp mode until warmed up - switch off/on again and it’s OK?

Not something I've experience, but sounds quite dangerous. I'd be getting it booked in for a look.

Had this same problem on another make, it was the ABS sensors, either faulty or engine managment system saying faulty when not. Once realised what it was, it was a quick fix.
If ABS are not working correctly it puts the car in to so called safety mode / limp mode ... " not very safe to me" and reduces the power.
