    Default Slight hesitation

    I'm starting to get worried again. I noticed in 6th the other day that on accelerating within the turbo range the car is hesitating very slightly. I immediately pulled over and removed the tuning box. The box has been running on only 18 turns for ages now, so approximately 185bhp. Anyway, after taking the box off and going for a further drive the car is still hesitating ever so slightly.

    I've been doing some little tests on the way to work these past two days and it's not only happening in 6th. It's any gear but within the turbo range. If you give the car some beans it seems to drive nomally.

    I'm not getting any warning lights or smoke from the exhaust. The manifold/turbo was replaced last year due to a crack in the manifold, so hopefully it's not that (fingers crossed). Two of the injectors were changed just after the manifold and also the fuel rail and harness.

    The car is slightly over due a service, so does anyone think it could simply be crying out for a fuel filter change?

    I'm going to phone the stealer this morning and try and book the car in for them to look at it and for a service.

    Opinion please peeps.

    I have exactly the same, mines more noticable at slow speeds. Also when driving at a constant 30 or 40 occasionally
    get what feels like a misfire.

    Only been serviced 5000miles ago so shouldn't be anything to do with that, but haven't had time to take it to the stealers yet
    so would be interested to hear the outcome.

    I got the car back today after it's service. The hesitation was caused by a faulty wire to an injector apparently.

    The car is now driving as it should, so it's time for a Spider box me thinks, as this is the most advanced box on the market today and doesn't put so much pressure on the fuel rail, fuel pump or injectors.

    Sorry to put a downer on the subject but i had a similar problem 2 months ago and then suddenly one day the car would not reverse off the driveway. Luckily the car was under warranty but the total repair bill was £2900 not including VAT, Labour and the parts were at trade.

    The car had a new turbo, intercooler, cat, injectors, swirl valve, manifold, MAF sensor along with a few other parts.

    Glad yours was sorted alex..at least it wasn't that hard, or wallet painful..

    our's is still misfiring at idle, but fine up the rev range.. i think VX have just wrung their hands of it ....as they won't entertain looking at it again till it's been run for a few months...why?..if it isn't right when it left their workshops it isn't going to 'magically' cure itself is it?....

    Even though my car was overdue a service, they still carried out the work under warranty which did surprise me. But I suppose they had it in for a service as well, so they over looked it.
