    Possible power loss

    My car came back from it's service today, when they did a diagnostic check it came up with the following code: (17963) charge pressure-upper limit exceeded-engine.

    My car has been re-mapped by A.M.D. The point i'm getting at is that since getting my car back today, it doesn't seem to have the same pick up/boost as it did before it went in!!! Would them sorting out the code possibly have done something to the re-map, or is it just me being paranoid [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    should not have changed it, unless they reflashed the ecu and wiped the map!

    Re: Possible power loss

    I phoned A.M.D today and they said that it would not have anything to do with the re-map.

    They say that it could be a split hose,diverter valves, or Maf.

    If it was the maf wouldn't it have come up with a different code? I don't think it is the maf for some reason. I'm thinking more air/boost leak???

    Does anybody know anywhere closer to Leicester than A.M.D in Oxford, i could take it to get it checked out and tested.

    The Audi specialist i go to doesn't have a pressure tester. So i asked how he would check for leaks etc.. he said diagnostics check and looking and listening. Without sounding dumb- would that be enough to find a split hose or diverter problem???

    Any help appreciated,

    Thanks, D. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]
