    Default Help needed cdti broke down urgent

    Hi guys was driving home last night and the last 50 miles the car all of a sudden started jerking best way to describe it was like it was running on 3 cylinders

    The whole car shook if I pressed the throttle and on tick over sounded very lumpy and rattled

    I have had no eml and no fault codes what could it be I'm thinking injector or the wiring but surely this would bring up car and spanner light

    I am goin to check no3 wiring now but I have no idea could it be fuel pimp or not

    kit should be about £14 or so, not a bad job to do.. make sure you make the join further around the loom otherwise fitting the casing back around the wiring can be tight.

    Sounds like the 3rd injector loom fault just from your first post. It never really puts up the EML light.

    Winnie, you should really replace all of them. Last summer I had problems with the 4th injector plug, so I replaced all and it's been fine since. The new blue plugs fit really well and snug compared to the yellow ones.
