Re: Fiat Doblo 1.3

I know the focus tdci's are bad for going into limp mode/lack of turbo boost if there is a glow plug issue so if i was you i would correct that fault and see what happens as the glow plugs are used for the emissions.

Sounds daft i know but can't overlook anything on a modern vehicle.

Thanks Neil

Hi Kevin,

If that is the case then they will be different as your inlet and exhaust valves open at different times?

Not sure if that is case, just my thoughts!
