I have a 2011 Astra J 1.6 turbo SRi petrol.

I had a water leak from the thermostat housing, so I replaced it.

Now my car engine won't rev past 2500rpm. I'm assuming it's in some kind of limp mode. The dash also complains to service the car soon.

No error codes from scanning with Torque Pro.

I must have disturbed something when I was fixing the leak, but everything is plugged in as it should be.

Help! I need to get this thing running for work. Thanks.

There are lots of manufacturer specific codes that won't get picked up by an obd2 type reader like torque pro,get it scanned with something up to the job,there will be a code or two stored

Is there anything that someone like me can purchase that would be able to show these manufacturer codes?

Just to let people know I fixed the issue .... and I feel like an idiot.

I put a tissue into the turbo inlet pipe to stop bolts falling in.

Then I put everything back together ..... but forgot to remove the tissue!

Took it all apart, removed the tissue, now all is well.

🤦

For Info 'Service Vehicle Soon' message is not relevant to getting your car serviced. Its a fault alarm indicating you need to get your vehicle checked for a fault at the garage. This was Vx's way of alerting drivers.
