While driving along my 2005 mercedes e320cdi goes into a limp mode and I don't seem to have a turbo. Once I stop it and turn off the key and let it sit for several minutes it seems to be fine once it is restarted. What is wrong with it

    When I say limp mode, I mean the engine seems to have lost power. The transmission is not effected only the engine performance.

    This vehicle does not have a ureurea system and I have no problem with cold starts.

Please describe limp mode. wesleygolden@optonline.net Is the transmission effected, or engine performance. how long has the check engine light been on. And do you have starting issues during cold start. Ooh does this model have a ureurea system in it? An addtive to clean the catalytic system which needs to be service once a year...

Faulty Turbo


Now if i knew what you meant by blew ?? then i might have a idea --most turbo faults are caused by dirty oil and changing the engine oil every 5000miles with a filter every third oil change will stop this problem .The other problem is the turbine vanes breaking off or being damaged by grit where the air filter is missing or a pipe loose or split allowing the thing to suck in unfiltered air but i do know someone with one of these and he sold it in the end and bought a transit as the turbo gave up quite often ,but without taking the turbo apart then i couldnt tell you why they are failing but i do know he kept a small hand held diagnostic machine in the cab and when it went into limp mode he cleared the codes and off he went again .Seem to remember as well the waste gate operating piston playing up i think a rubber tube perished so it didnt open and the increase in pressure as the engine revved up caused the thing to go into limp mode as too much pressure was being generated ,the rubber tube goes from the pressure side of the turbo to the piston its about 4cms long so as the air pressure builds up it this pressure pushes the piston which opens the waste gate which is a little flap on the exhaust side of the turbo into the exhaust manifold so when it opens it allows the exhaust gas pressure to go straight down the exhaust pipe releaving pressure on the turbo vanes .If the pressure in the inlet side goes too high then a sensor will put the engine into limp mode .Hope you understand this technical jargon ?

Automatic gearbox


IT IS GOING INTO LIMP MODE. COULD BE A TRANSMISSION ERROR. THE LIMP MODE IS DESIGNED TO PROTECT TRANS AND ENGINE FROM FURTHER DAMAGE

The turbo died for about 5 mins under normal driving conditions and re-started once the ignition was turned off and then on again.. This happened once in winter and then again in summer approx. 5 months...


In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in "limp home" mode!!!
After scan the EDC-15P engine control unit with a VAG or KTS -BOSCH diagnosis tool you will find this: Fault code: P1557-Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increase too much and ECU (engine control unit) go in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp home" mode engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault still remain in ECU memory!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.
