Twice in the past 4 weeks I’ve had 2 very scary moments on smart (not very smart) roads. One was a very busy dual carriage way (police called and road closed for police to escort me) and the other was yesterday heading down to Southampton on the M3 where a HGV very nearly hit us if it hasn’t been for a miraculous lay-by turning up) and Driving over 70, feel a little tug, then “Engine Service now” and the car goes into limp mode, slowing down, accelerator doesn’t work and it brings me to a stop.

Both times after turning the engine off fully, and starting again the car has been fine. my garage said they cleaned a sensor last time & and can’t find anything wrong! I’ve got it booked in with Ford on Monday for a diagnostic test.

I’ve read that this has happened quite a few times to others on here but can’t find the fix? PLEASE HELP x

Yes keithmac is correct and could be the oil pressure sensor. Seen it a couple of times now.

Welcome to the forum. Please have a read here and update your signature with your car's details.


For what it's worth, smart motorways are a good idea providing nobody is never going to breakdown. Whoever came up with the idea should go take a drive in a truck loaded to 44 ton GTW and get them to see how long it takes to stop at 56mph.

If it is the Oil Pressure sensor you will have to be driving with Diagnostics connected (and break down) to catch it.

For some reason the PCM doesn't store some engine crippling codes in it's history DCT data?.
