    Just got in the car to drive home to find absolutely no go in it at all. As if someone had nicked my turbo!

    No lights on the dash, temp all fine. Car is a 1.9tdi AWX on 114k. Been a really good drive up until this.

    Recently serviced and fitted EGR delete a couple of months ago but other than that its standard.

    Wondering if anyone has any tips as to what I should look at before taking it in?

    BTW - No change when cycling the ignition and it appears to be in permanent limp mode... not just after a certain speed/rpm.

    Get the car read for fault codes, then go from there! Also check there are no vaccumm leaks

    Typically checked it over this morning and took it for a blast and it was fine. Still going to try and get it scanned this week and probably change the vac pipes as they could probably do with changing anyway!
