    Limp mode

    I've had my car for about 6 months (1.7CDTI 100ps). In that time the car has gone into limp mode about 4 or 5 times. Each occasion has only lasted a few seconds - less than 10, usually much less than that, and has then run perfectly again for weeks. I don't get smoke except on hard acceleration.

    Seems very random, the first time it happened was about 5 months ago, but the car is still starting and running fine, so if there was something amiss 5 months ago why hasn't it deteriated by now?

    Anyone got any ideas?
