    Previa Diesel Turbo 2004
  1. Hi All I have had problems with my Previa going into limp home/safe mode over a number of years with code 1251 coming up. Apparently this code indicates a turbo problem. The main dealership have never got to the bottom of this and after reading posts on here I am not sure that they will I am reluctant to spend out more on this fault. I have read of people having the turbo replaced only to have the same fault code coming up after a while. also people reconditioning/repairing the turbo and having the same result I am sure this is an inherent problem on at least Previas and Ravs that is causing owners a lot of money and which is not being cured long term. The problem presents huge safety issues, as I know from my own experience (overtaking on the M5 in the middle lane and suddenly in limp home mode) I am on a mission to find out the extent of the problem amongst owners. I am wondering if it is an Engine Management Technical System fault rather than an engine parts problem. It can be 12 months between the limp home mode happening with no action taken in between. Surely if the turbo had a problem it would happen much more often. If you have come across it youself or on here please let me know. Also has anyone heard of people selling their cars because they were unhappy/couldn't get to the bottom of this problem. We may have a recall situation here!! Thanks
