Just for your info, this is what my tank looked like after the first limp mode. The tank was clean up until that point.

The coolant was obviously getting hot, and pressure had built up. Either the cap is leaking, or it genuinely did its job and relieved the pressure at 16psi. Either way, when this pressure relief happens it must throw up some code. 

What was weird, was the level seemed low when I first looked at it and then slowly went back up to the line as it sat there. I still can't understand that bit at all.

I've just cleaned it up and tried to re-tighten the cap, but it jumps threads before it gets to what I consider to be properly tight. I've ordered a new cap and a new tank. (The tank part number is now on it's FOURTH revision. I'm not sure what version I've got fitted)

I had a new tank fitted last year as does appear they do leak presumably from the pressure
