    Fault: Code P1297

    After seeing the eml light illuminate on my dashboard, I thought id read the memory to see what I could find. It threw up: Pressure drop between turbon and throttle valve. (P1297)

    Could someone inform me on how to cure this fault.

    Thanks

    one of the most common fault codes ever to be seen on 1.8t engines.
    unfortunatly one of the most vaugest too.....
    check for air leaks everywhere/anywhere. if you cant see any, then most likely is the airmass is over reading.

    good luck!
