Hi,
Have an 2005 GU with ZD30 and automatic...
When I hit pedal slow, it accelerates but cant hear any turbowhistle.... no kickdown is working, and if I floor it - its shuts down to like 800rpms and can rev for say 10 seconds ,then you can slowly accelerate.... wierd right??
No checkengine-light...
(only thing is STABI OFF that lights no matter what you do, and stereo lights up but doesnt work - probobaly nothing to do with anything but anyway :)
Have search this forum entire yesterday evening and was gonna try to change airfilter, dieselfilter and maybe the AirFlowSensor?

Am I wrong out?

Cheers //J

Sounds like your throttle position sensor. Or it could be limp mode. Have you changed anything else recently ?

There are a few guides on here detailing how to fix it.

Limp won't trigger the light. I know :) it just makes the car non responsive and limits your boost until you lift your foot and plant it again.

I would start with cleaning your maf sensor. Start with the easy things first :)

Certainly sounds like a faulty TPS , sure do the easy stuff first......pull the MAF out and clean with MAF cleaner clean / check air and fuel filters and then all the obvious like air lines etc around the engine. If all this doesnt fix it then changethe TPS, this is not a hard job, if you know someone that has a vehicle same as yours you could try the TPS from the other vehicle before spending $
