Limp mode, No warnings, no errors read

Recommended Posts

Good day all. Well not for me. My Avensis t180 went into limp mode. No dash lights, no error codes read, no smoke no weird turbo noises. EGR was clogged couple months ago and I did clean in and ran millers through it and had no problems till now. When EGR was clogged I had lights and the error code for clogged EGR. Anyone got any insights or similar problem/fixes? I'm hoping it's not turbo issue but can't rule it out. Any advice welcome. Thanks.

Morning all. Well I went out to have a look at the egr. Popped the bonnet, noticed the intake hose was loose. Anyway I took it off to find this in the turbo pipe leading to impeller. I'm hoping this is the route of my problems but who can say.

It wasn't rotten. It sucked the rubber seal in chewed it up in the impeller and bent the vanes. 😔
