TDCI needs more rpm to pull away


Recommended Posts


Had the timing belt and waterpump changed on my 2008 1.4 TDCI and now when I move away from stationary I need to put more revs through it or the engine judders and it stalls. I've had the car for about 10yrs so pretty used to it and it seems odd that I have the work done and I get bogged down or stall whilst moving away.

Could it be related to the timing belt change?

Take it back and have them redo timing sounds like it's out a tooth. I had the same problem with my old car I timed it up wrong by a tooth and had the same problem as you describe. Luckily I turned it over by hand to make sure nothing was hitting before I drove it. So I re timed it and it was good as new.
