Timing chain replaced, engine still in "limp" mode - any suggestions?
Car went into limp mode & have had it to a garage. Diagnostic scan shows no faults, but they discovered timing chain needed replacing. That's been done. Still in limp mode & showing no faults. Can anyone advise?
Hi RReddy, sorry to hear you've been having problems with your Roomster. I think I'm right in saying the 1.6 petrol has a timing belt, not a chain... or is your car the diesel? If it is the petrol model I'm surprised a timing belt was changed to cure the car going into limp mode. It may well be that the belt needed replacement, but I would doubt it would cure the problem. There could, unfortunately, be a myriad of reasons for the car going into limp mode from a faulty coil, to an ECU problem or a dodgy sensor. If the car is showing no faults on a diagnostic test it makes it very hard to cure it. Is the car in a Skoda specialist or a general garage? If there's anything else you can add it would help trying to pin point the fault.
