Hi. I have a 2003 E270CDI (W211) which has covered 120K miles with full dealer history until 112k. Intermittently it goes into limp mode, usually when cold but not always. When warmed up a stop and ingnition reset does the trick. However after driving on the motorways today it went into limp mode on a hot engine. Boost seems high sometimes before this fault occurs. I have cleaned the MAF but realise it may need replacing. No warning lights on and I have not had the codes read as I am not close to a non franchise expert. Any ideas greatly appreciated.

^ Cleaning the MAF isn't usually very effective and a new one cures the problem. Buy OEM and not an eBay cheapie.

Ideally you want the codes read on Star.
Is it far to Nuneaton as Jay at Mercland could help?

Thanks for that. I will get one on order. Nuneaton is 40 minutes away so not far. Thanks again
