Fault code P010F

So I there I was, happily driving down the road on Monday, when all of a sudden the engine warning light comes on and I get the "Engine Failure" message.
Now of course I know that this is lying because as I said I'm happily driving down the road at the time and she's sweet as a nut.
Anyway, took her down the garage yesterday and they reckon it's an air flow incongruence - air flow v metred air flow or something like that - the mechanic said it could be the dreaded EGR. She's still there because they couldn't diagnose the cause of the fault.
Now I'll be the first to admit that I drive it like an old granny and try to squeeze as much mpg out as I can but it looks like from now on I'll have to hoof it every now and again.
Stay tuned for the next exciting installment of "Live or let Doblo".

Re: Fault code P010F

Got her back today and she's driving exactly the same as before - fine.

Ah well. At least they reset the warning lights and washed her for me.

Re: Fault code P010F

Drive it like a racing car now and again - when its warm of course. All cars need some of this, modern ones more than most. Mine gets a good fast run quite often, and seems to love it. If you perpetually pootle it'll bung up.

Re: Fault code P010F

Regular use of Millers 4 sport does no harm either.

Amusingly enough, it was on my first tank of Diesel + Millers that the problem occurred. Seems like good stuff though...

Re: Fault code P010F

Driving like a granny is great for fuel economy but every now and then you've gotta blow the soot out else it'll need a decoke (or, as we used to say, smeg & cleg)

Oooh, allowed to say 'smeg' - excellent.
And what's with the tags at the bottom of the page?
egr, failure, moped, squirrel, teatowel

Re: Fault code P010F

Since the little incident I've noticed that my fuel economy is rubbish... but then that could be due to the poor weather and me subconciously being more heavy footed. Ho hum.

Re the tags - half just to see what would happen, half cos I was in a funny mood and half to make it easily findable later if I need too.

Re: Fault code P010F

My daughter's GP 1.9mjet was playing up today, the 'CHECK ENGINE' message scrolled across the dash screen, plus the engine light is lit.

I managed using VCDS to read two fault codes: P010F, which it told me was Mass or volume air flow sensor A/B correlation & P0401, which it told me was EGR system: insufficient flow.

Do you know exactly what the garage did to fix your car?

Cheers

Jon

Re: Fault code P010F

I had an 06 SAAB 93 which every now and then, when driven by my wife a whole three miles to work & back, would limp and stagger.

I would then be given the task of "fixing" it.....no problem.

Foot hard down, whereupon it would reach the giddy heights of 3000rpm and no more. Place it in 1st manual (it was tiptronic) and drive flat out for around quarter mile, then second, same thing. By the time I had done about 2.5/3 miles, I reached a roundabout with lights, so I would sit and rev it as hard as possible until the revs started climbing. Then round and off until the layby, where I would idle for 60 seconds, switch off and start again.

Then, I took off like a stabbed rat and would alternate between 3rd & 4th for several miles. By the time I stopped & re-stated for the 3rd time, the light was off and all was well.....until the goop built up in the DPF and the merry go round stopped again

My Doblo is remapped and never gets driven nicely
