    Phantom Faults

    My car went into limp mode last night just putting it down to a glitch but restarted and away it went but part o me thought the small turbo wasnt working even though I tested it today and is boosting so its all in my head.

    Does anybody else have these stupid paranoia faults?

    I did when i first got the CS, kept cringing everytime i slipped it into R thinking it was going to work Problem is 'common' faults always get blown out of proportion with actual numbers compared to vehicles that havnt experienced said faults.

    Over mapped maybe?? Perhaps one of the sensors on the engine is protecting it from impending Doom....... I would get the fault codes read ASAP in case, and try not to leather the life out of it in the mean time...
