check engine & loss of power
I have a 2004 2.9crdi Sedona with 72000 miles on the clock.
The 'check engine' light is now coming on when accelerating. It seems to do so at about 2000 rpm and after it has come on there is no real acceleration any more - it feels like either the engine management system has put it into some emergency mode or the turbo is not being effective.
If the engine is restarted, the light stays off again until you accelerate beyond 2000rpm again.
It does not flash and the handbook implies that it is drivable. In fact I have just had to drive home in it (around 40 miles) and other than no acceleration, it seems quite happy at 70mph.
When the vehicle is stationary, revving the engine does not make the light come on.
I also (and have for some time) get a 'clicking noise' when depressing the accelerator and another one when letting up. Not all the time, but often. It sound to me like some sort of relay behind the dashboard somewhere. Difficult to tell when driving exactly where. Maybe this is connected to the engine light problem ?
Anyone got any ideas before I pass it on to a dealer to look at? It would be nice to get some sort of indications before they try and charge me a lot of money !
