    What are you using to scan the car? if it is going into limp mode there should be a code logged. Also what year, engine code (PD or common rail) , mileage etc, would help.

    If it is going into limp mode and the coil light is on, your reader is missing the code.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I took it back to the garage that fitted new egr they did get a egr fault show again they kept it for few hrs then said see how that goes. Literally 10 miles down road happened again but they said no fault code showing again. Took it to another garage that pit it on their diagnostics machine and no code however its had coil light and idle few times.
    Its a 2010 got 135000 on clock. Its not a sport just standard diesel 2.0tdi.

    If the light is on a code is at home, you need to find someone with proper diagnostic equipment, not just generic ODDII.
