Limp Mode and P0101 solved! Help with intercooler hose.
Posted by SammyB in MI [Email] (more from SammyB in MI) on Fri, 20 Sep 2019 06:26:38
So I've been trying to track down an intermittent check engine light (code P0101) and limp mode for the last few months on my 2008 9-3 2.0T (118k miles). I was also getting a rough idle that settled down after start-up, but limp mode was getting to be more and more common. If I stopped and restarted, it would be fine in city driving, until I went back on the freeway. Replaced throttle body, checked and cleaned connections, cleaned MAF sensor, still nothing. Hoses looked fine initially until I saw a faint line in hose #2 in the attached diagram from the link. I reached down and could actually stick my fingers in through a 3 inch rip. I have it temporarily duct taped, cleared the engine light, and no more limp mode, and no more rough idle at start-up.
So now is my question...I have replacement hose on order, but I don't know how easy this is to replace. I can see one end of the connection from the top, but I can't seem to find the connection that goes to the intercooler. Do I have to remove the front bumper to get to this, or can I access this from the bottom? Part number is 12786560.
