    Default 1.9cdti missfire

    Hi I hope this is the right section for this. Basicly I was driving back from stoke yesterday and my car developed a missfire which wasnt too bad etc etc, then as I drove futher I got the spanner light then limp mode and a very bad missfire when I put my footdown, I got back home did abit of reading then found out about the egr valve so I whipped that off and it was abit sooty so I cleaned it then took it out for a drive and it was exactly the same as before just no spanner light this time when driving only the engine management light. So I got back home and had another poke around the engine and it looked like one of the injector connections wasnt plugged in right, so again I had a quick look on here and found that to be another fault so I took the DIY approach of cable tieing them on for now, took it out for a spin and its back to full power and never been so smooth! So really all Im asking is does it sound likely that my sudden loss of power came from the injector plug coming loose?

    I also have to say thanks alot to all those who make and comment the howto's they came in very handy for me yesterday!
