1.6 Tdci Cutting Out!

08 April 2012 - 08:06 PM

I was recently on my way down the motorway. When my engine for no reason cut out! I coasted to the hard shoulder the switched off the ignition. It started no problem straight after? I drove it 1/2 mile down the road then cut out again!
When I got the car towed home. I started the engine and within no time the cooling fan started up?
A friend mentioned that it could be the ECU temperature sensor sending the wrong message to the ECU? But why would the engine cut out?

Can anyone help?

Faulty Turbo Actuator?

16 March 2012 - 05:14 PM

Hi. I have had a recent turbo and DPF. Now and again I loose power intermittently. It's as if someone is applying the brakes on and off. I Have recently drove my car trying to get the best mpg, last night on my way home from work I put my foot down a bit that's when it started again.
Could this be a faulty turbo actuator Opening before it should? As I said it does not happen all the time only now and again, although I don't seem to have a great deal of boost at higher revs (3.000 rpm)

Any help would be great.

Hi out there, could anyone tell me what sort of symptoms a sticky/faulty MAF sensor would give to a 1.6 tdci?

More Power Loss Issues.

05 March 2012 - 04:32 PM

My focus is doing my head in, I had a turbo go on me back in January. then my engine management light started to come on DPF problem, so I replaced that. Now I am suffering loss of power now and again. It just feels sluggish sometimes and it often kangaroos when I apply the throttle as if someone is lightly applying the brakes. As I said its not all the time and it's completely random. It seems to be when the engine gets hot and the cooling fan is on? May be my imagination?
I had the fuel filter changed a few weeks ago with the oil and filter. Someone mentioned it could be the turbo acctuater sticking. Can anyone help.

Dpf Replacement

18 February 2012 - 05:46 PM

Hello out there, I am 99% sure my DPF is f..ked. I have found a replacement on eBay, a brand new after market one. Could anyone tell me that if I bought it and fitted it, would my car need remapping? Or would it be like fitting a new piece of exhaust? I have a separate unit that feeds oil into the fuel, I will top this up too. Any help would be great. 😊
