    didnt cure it...

    thanx mate - just spoke to the garage and he cleared that code and it hasnt come back now so nothing wrong there.

    He is going to do a fuel filter and oil change next week to see if that cures it, needs a service now anyway.

    if that doesnt do it he reckons it may be a doodgy batch of diesel as we put in £15 last night so a bit suspect.....

    NIGHTMARE!

    cheers mate - the fault code that initially came up has now gone.... but thanx for the link.

    we are thinking maybe its some dodgy diesel we have bought?

    To be honest it could be a number of things -

    Faulty injector(s)
    Faulty wiring to the injector
    Air Mass Sensor (have you oiled a K&N panel filter lately?)
    Blocked fuel filter
    Diesel Fuel Pump
    Dreaded Swirl Valve
    Or it could be some dodgy diesel as you say.

    What garage are you using? I take it it's not a Vx dealer otherwise they'd be able to tell you what the code means?
