I have had the same problem with my Mazda 6, I had done 22500 miles when a light popped up. SO i persisted to go to mazda who much like yourslef told me my driving style is wrong. Which i thought was ludacris. After an expensive diagnostics they said it was due to my egr vavle causing my Diesel Particulate Filter to Block. That was it then they put a £4000 bill if i wanted the parts done in front of me. I laughed out of shear disbelief. I then persisted to look around and noticed on Fixya some one saying about the same problem. They said they had found a company happy to help. SO i persisted to call them, I even asked for the name that was put on the system Darrell i believe, i have to say for someone that doesnt work for mazda i think he should so informative, Unfortuantly the other person said the new part was £500 but darrell told me that the price was £603 allm in with a surcharge, (certainly alot better than mazda anyway). I toyed with the idea for a little while and bit the bullet and ordered it with then. 4 days later a new DPF arrived, 2 days later i took to mazda who said much like Darrell that i must replace the EGR valve and do a full engine oil Flush. I told them to go ahead i paid about 300 for the egr valve and all in all cost me just over a grand. My point is Darrell told me of a good maintenance procedure for these vehicles. Instead of buying a new car as this one aperently "isnt right for me" he told me to once a week blast it through the whole reg range. Since then 5 months on no problems what so ever thought i would share this info with you guys as it seems quite a common fault. Darrell number and company name are 0844 880 4149. Hope this helps some people

How can you tell if a new gearbox is needed other than a Ecu which has been replaced

have the fault codes read first
if the car is moving in limp mode with no obvious noises or problems , replacement of the box is a total last resort
light on the dash and limp mode can be transmission or engine or both but the fault codes will show the problem area
The ECU -- engine control unit or ECM --engine control module gets messages from the transmission control module ---TCM--and that TCM controls solenoids and servos , vss and other items that if faulty will put the car in limp mode
read the fault codes

Mechanics advised that gearbox needs replace after diagnostic Of codes . Dash light still on after codes being read , have had ecu replaced 2yrs ago ? What do you think it could be , thanks phil

didnt specify vehicle --generic answer--until repair is made the vehicle will show engine light and have codes --if gearbox is problem for limp mode /until repairs are made or gearbox replaced you will be in limp mode --and as to sensor find out what one it was --start problem may show back up if sensor was problem --and GET a 3rd opinion you have 2 mechanics with different opinions on your problem and i guess they are reading your trouble codes differently

Check engine light flashing on motorway journey

I have had the same problem with a Kia Sedona which also gave the same symptoms as it goes into limp mode. I found it was a problem with the fuel filter, this started happening after I ran it low on fuel. Changing the filter and not running it low has cured my problem and might just cure yours.

your truck has gone to limp mode probably because of driving the truck for to long with the dpf light on without performing the dpf regeneration,the only way i know possible to use a diagnostic equipment,probably a MUT3 and have the ecu reset and perform a force regeneration afterwards,thats the only way i know possible
