Hi everyone, I've had my V plate 2.5 tdi for seven years now, and boy do I love it! But........ I've had a problem happen to me a couple of times, and I don't know what it is, or how to overcome it, but it rights itself in a couple of days! It's all to do with rian and water. From startup the engine goes into an idle only mode at about 1100 rpm, I can actually drive it (to get home) but what a pain in the ass! Not only for me but other road users, Guess what? It happened today, at 07.20 when I needed to get to work, as todays work is 35 miles away, I'm staying at home, playing with my teapots. I'm going out to look under the bonnet now, perhaps with a hair drier! Anybody got any ideas? Oh while I'm on it, can anybody recommend a VW specialist who is honest and trustworthy in the Exeter/Devon area? At the moment, money's not what it once was! Thanks to all, Brendan.
