    Car held back and eml and traction light on!!!

    Was driving today, put my foot down and the car just held back loads (throwing me forward lol).

    Now i have eml on and traction light on.

    The car struggles to idle and hunts from 200 rpm to 1200 rpm.

    Iv disconnected battery and still does it. Also disconnected maf sensor and still does it!

    Il check it out at work tomorrow (vx) but just wondered if anyones had this?

    It still boosts up but haven't propper planted as i dont know what the fault codes are until tomorrow.

    Something makes me think boost leak but i couldn't see a problem when i looked earlier.

    Are collins dumpvalves able to make this happen if its faulty?

    Cheers for any help

    sounds like dreaded AFM, thats classic sign of TC light on and EML. ave u done pedal test

    boost leak will bring up code 1106 amongst others, and afm with be 0100

    if a major boost leak u find it very hard to rev car

    Thats what i mean, it drives fine. Just wont idle

    Il check in the morning. I bloody forgot to get my old AFM when courtenay fitted a new one on the rolling road.

    More expensive.
