Customer Question

Hello. I have a W203 C220 CDi which keeps going into limp mode which is reset when I restart the car. I took it to an indy who read the following codes:


I don't think the turbo is to blame as it works fine until it goes into limp mode. The pickup is a little sluggish though. Could this just be the MAF sensor?

I worry that if I go straight to the dealer they'll try to sell me a new turbo.
