Won't go past 2k rpm

Postby nelzzy » Wed Jul 19, 2017 12:29 pm

Hi guys,

As I was driving this morning my00 gc8 all of a sudden felt like it cut off, engine still running and did not stall but I couldn't get it to go over 2k rpm.

I pulled over, turned off engine, started it back up and it was the same thing.

I turned it off and waited for a few minutes before starting it and it was fine again.

I continued driving to work but off boost and kept it under 3k rpm.

Would I be right in saying that the car went into limp mode? The car has been running fine up until today.

Is there a way to check if the afm is still in good condition? I remember reading somewhere - you start the car, remove the afm plug and it should stall to know if afm is still working (or should the engine continue running) - can't remember which?
