Having an issue with my Veccy and am after some advice;
Driving home last Friday the car started intermittently kangarooing on the motorway, as the tank was running low filled her up (with diesel) to see if that made any difference - it made none whatsoever!
Thought I'd change the fuel filter on Saturday, got a few miles between the house and Camberly Auto Factors when I experienced a complete lack of power; almost as if the turbo wasn't kicking in. Eventually changed the filter after breaking the housing and getting a new one from Vx again this made no difference.
Took her to the garage today and it took me a good twenty five seconds to hit 30 on the flat - completely gutless! The garage have identified an issue with the wiring on injector three (which we think was causing a slight misfire when cold) but also noted that the flywheel was shot - I had noticed the vibration but kind of buried my head in the sand.
As far as fault codes go aside from a historic code regarding low flow on the EGR valve, which was blanked at the time and was replaced on Monday, they did mention a code relating to Fuel Pressure & Temperature - can't remember the exact wording.
Now the garage are going to repair the wiring on injector three tomorrow but have also said that the flywheel could be causing the lack of power - the logic being that the excessive vibration is triggering the knock sensor and causing the ECU to go into Limp Home mode - is this likely?
One thing to note; using the diagnostics on the BC and looking at the injector volume, with the pedal flat to the floor the volume begins to ramp up (as you would expect) but then drops by upto a ml before increasing again, then dropping again and so on which leads me to believe this isn't due to the DMF - again any ideas?
I really appreciate you taking the time to read this as I don't want to fork out £600 to have the DMF & clutch changed only to find I still have exactly the same issue and I can get out and walk faster!
