    Exclamation 4,000 rpm engine stutter

    55 plate 1.9 cdti 16v, 58k on the clock, always vx dealer serviced
    have had some problems with engine management light in the past which the the dealer has fixed, took 3 attempts though said they had to relplace the engine management unit & the EGR valve.
    had the car back in for engine management light again last week, got it back with a fault, at 4,000ish rpm the engine dies for a split second then carries on, change gear and take it up to around 4,000 rpm same again, fault comes and goes.
    Put it back in with the dealer they fitted a exhaust gasket road tested it and said it was sorted, i drove it 5 miles from the dealer still had the same problem, gave it back to them.

    anyone had a similar type of fault

    cheers

    I had this sort of problem on my 53 plate focus (dont shoot me guys) TDCi... Ford were shyte at trying to fix it so I ended up selling it.

    If the Vx dealer is trying to fix the problem, keep guiding them in the right direction.

    Will look at posible fixes for you mate.

    Have they checked the MAF??

    Also, check the air box, in some cases, the filter has been defective and has distorted itself causing a partial blockage. This can give (apparently) the symptoms of a lack of power as you describe....

    Looking still for other potential problems / causes
