|02 2.0 Cutting out at speed - loss of power - tom8870|
I have a 52 plate 2.0 TDCI diesel with 128k miles . The problem happened last week when the car cut out at 50/60mph out on a steep hill. Lucky noone was behind me. The car restarted. After it happened a second time - i took it to my local independent garage and the codes are P1211 and PO251. The fault seems to happen when i rev the car to say pick up speed after a roundabout. I drove 60 miles the other day at appox 30 to 50mph range and had no problems at all
The garage checked the injectors which they say are ok. They also took out the fuel filter and they say that it is also ok. They were at a loss as to what to do next so based on the forums i suggested that they change the crank shaft sensor. The cam sensor was changed about 6 months ago.
The crankshaft sensor was changed today. So there is some improvement. As i reve the car from say 20mph to 60mph on the road to replicate say overtake someone the car is fine till appox 2500 revs and 65 mph when i notice a slight loss of power and the glow light starts flashing. prior to crankshaft sensor change the car would just cut out at the 60mph.
So I am looking for any helpful pointers as to what i can suggest to the garage as possible next steps.
thanks in advance Tom
