62 reg 2.2 TDCI Engine Surging

Recommended Posts

Saturday 05/05/18 I serviced my brakes used the car most of that day ran fine come Monday 07/05/18 I noticed a slight surging when holding the throttle steady (i.e. 3rd gear doing 30mph), and it is gradually getting worse especially in mornings. I have no EML on or anything? I want to try and get on top of this before something expensive happens. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated.

When was the fuel filter last changed, this can throw up all sorts of feeling problems.

Does the car do regular long trips?  Mine surges lightly quite often but I can't find a cause.  However it starts surging very noticeably when it needs a DPF regen after several short/town trips.  It's back to normal again after the DPF regen is completed.

Filter was done last month and had a long trip run to the coast and back 2 weekends ago. Could possibly do with another run. It was suggested that the fuel injectors could possibly be contaminated. Is it worth running a cleaner through then? I always use vpower fuel.

Just to update you guys I came across the issue as to why I was having a surging problem. I had an EML come on at the weekend and the images can tell you as to why it cam on. After a  heavy bill from Ford for the replacement intercooler hose, I put the new on and it is as good as new now. Appreciate all the suggestions and advice given previously.
