In Topic: 1.6 Tdci Cutting Out!

09 April 2012 - 10:27 AM

I had done about 15 miles since fill up, no error codes appeared as I checked with my fault code reader. The AA man said it could be temperature controled problem but rulled out crankshaft sensor because the rev counter droped with the speed as the car cut out.
And as for missfueled???
Where would I find the ECU temperature sensor (not the dash temp sensor)?

The fan came on after about 5 minutes of the car ticking over. The fuel tank was full and so was the car as we were going on holiday at the time. The filter was changed about 4000 miles ago it's had a new turbo, DPF, and service.

I your considering a diesel don't get a 1.6 or 2.0 they have DPF 's 1.8 is the best. 1.6 are prone to turbo's failing due to oil starvation. I have a 1.6 56 plate and it has cost me dearly!! New turbo and DPF (diesel particulate filter) I still have it because i have spent so much on it. I only wish I kept my Honda!!

Hi. What does that do? Does it regulate the Boost pressure? And would it operate the actuator?

Hi. I have been told it might be a sticky actuator. That's the unit to the right of the turbo that allows the turbo to boost. Might be sticking? Mine is only now and again, it did it yesterday. It just seemed like it had no power and was hard to drive? Changing down gear going up hills etc. as if the turbo was not boosting fully? I will let you know.
