Hello and Welcome - My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help - advise...
Can you give me the Full vehicle details - inc its mileage and whether it has service history / recent repairs?
Also - do you ever get any fault lights come on when this happens ?
As you are not on at the moment - just let me know in here on your rtn - when I get your reply, I will get back to you asap thereafter - Rgds, MIKE..................................
Sorry I completely forgot to give the most important info.
It's a Vauxhall Insignia, ecoflex diesel 59 plate. Its mileage is 125000 miles, it's had the sensor glow plugs changed and the turbo outlet tube also changed last year as there was an oil leak and this is where it came from. Also had the actuator changed which is found at the front of the engine bay.
There haven't been any service light come on
Every 2 months the water needs topping up. It was last serviced last November
When I say service light, I mean fault light
Just to confirm, do you think this would have caused the loss in power too?
I got hold of an opcom reader and following codes came up.
Motor type: A20DTHPart Number:55574903Software version number: 03503F3BHardware manufacturer number: O100036819O100061418Programming Date: 20130621Hardware key number: O100036819System description: BOSCH0100Variant programming: 0x383641414A4E37303932343330323037Alpha code: 00Hardware manufacturer system name: EDC17C19

Ok so I did what you said,
the code came up as p1325 02 after about 30 mins driving.
The car drives smoother but the code is bothering me.
This code came up last year and the crankshaft sensor was replaced which hadn't helped, it was corrected by changing the sensor glowplugs.
I was wondering if this could be related to the timing belt?
Is it also possible or are you allowed to recommend a ggod mechanic in the middlesex/London area?
What do you think I should do next? Ask a mechanic to change the water pump and check the timing or just let them have a look and let them diagnose based on the fault code.
