    Default Do these symptoms sound like an injector problem ?

    I have just had my 1.9 cdti (150) in at Vx for the second day running to try and diagnose a problem. When it had the diagnostic check it came back as the EGR valve (9 months old), they checked all this today and now say its not the EGR valve but think there is a problem with the Injectors.

    The car is juddering, around the 1500rpm - 2200rpm point in all gears. There doesnt seem to be a loss of power outside of this range, and runs fine then too... ? If I wanted to 'thrash' the car so to speak it would run fine ??

    I am reluctant to have Vx send it away for the Injectors to be tested as I havent got the money to just throw around while they are 'guessing'.... What other possible causes could it be ? Any ideas ??

    Thanks...

    For starters before going anywhere near injectors, check the vacuum pipes. If split they are known to cause problems in this range as they affect tubocharger spooling. Fail in that I would say EGR valve. Only plump for injectors as a very last resort. Also ask why they think that. If they are basing their diagnosis on what diagnostic software tells them then that's not the most accurate. To understand how the injectors are performing they need to do a leak off test.

    Thanks. I might ask my local mechanic to check the vacuum pipes before Vx take it on Monday. I have a vision that it comes back with the same prpblem but with a 300 quid bill just for 'checking'...
