hi guys need some help ASAP. i have searched but come up with soo many different things im unsure what to do.
to start with the EML has NOT been on. but since ive had the guy its been abit gutless when you pull away, if you dont give it a bootfull it will stall but then it wheel spins its got no power in first and not great in second once its moving it seems fine unless u slow down in a higher gear. usually you would expect some lag and then the power kick in but it doesnt you always have to drop back to second!?
when i plugged it into a code reader i got: Problem with: motor for intake manifold flap malfunction 19559 v157
but as i said its not had the light on. then on the way home lastweek the light popped on but when it did it actually felt like it drove better for the last few miles home then the light was off again the next day. the a few days later it went into limp mode on the motorway could back keep at 60 and from a roundabout foot flat on the floor i couldnt even hit 40 in second! then was fine the next day !?
ive taken the front big intake intercooler pipe off and the flap is in the middle so fully open and can be pushed closed easily with my finger so its not jammed which i believe is the usuall problem?
also i only average about 45mpg even if i drive slowly?? car has done 123k
now iam not flush with cash at the moment especially right before xmas so i dont want to shell out over £300 for the throttle body/intake flap if its not actually browken and its something else but i do ALLOT of miles and i need the car to be reliable.
any help and suggestions be very helpfull
thanks in advance
