    Default CDTI Hesitation issues....?

    Hi,

    My wifes CDTI 160 has been playing up for a while and its been to the dealer but to no avail...

    When driving in traffic say at 45mph and you go to accelerate slightly the engine struggles for a few seconds as if youve hit the brakes rather than the accelerator.... shes also had it do it at junction where she pulls away and then it virtually dies on her.... its not in the wrong gear for the speed either.

    Now im no stranger to faulty EGR and DPF having experienced this myself on my car but does this sound it could be the same on this.... she does around 85 miles a day all 35% fast A road 65% fast M6 so dont see why she should have any issues...

    Dealer says no problem found.... Any ideas?

    Thanks for the replys....

    I have been told to check the boost sensor before but not sure where it is to be honest? Is it the one mounted on the slam panel near the bonnet catch?

    Out of interest get your multi meter out and with the car running probe positive to the negative post on the battery and negative to the engine, if you get a reading above or below 0.00 you have a earth problem.
