    Default 2 weeks at the garage!

    My mate has a 1.4 Meriva 2003. 38000mls, sorry its not a Vec C. Had the engine management caption light up and then loss of power, became very sluggish. Started to missfire when at steady speed.

    Has been with the garage for 2 weeks now and has been diagnistic checked. Coil pack changed, compression tested, fuel filter changed as well as the plugs. New air mass meter fitted and the fault remains.

    Has any one here got any ideas of what could be wrong. He is now expecting a large bill but has been without the car for ages. All he gets when he calls is....we can't fix it, leave it with us!

    Awesome VV.

    Thanks for that I will get him to get the garage to check it out as they are flummoxed at the moment.

    If they say it's not showing a fault, ask them to use the hand held reader and go out and read it while the fault is showing itself at speed.


    For anyone else reading, when you get this sort of problem and there's no eml on the dash, 1st action is new airfilter and a good quality inj cleaner in half a tank of juice, save yourself the hassle and cost of parts that don't need replacing.
