    Default zafira 1.9cdti 120 eml on

    hi all not been on here for a while since purchasing zafira but thought u guys maybe able to help.
    while sitting in traffic in 36degree heat in france recently the dreaded car/spanner light comes on, when i turned the car off a code came up in the display (insp4), after reading through the owners manual i found out that it is sensing water in the diesel filter and now the car is running lumpy at idle and has a slight chug around 2000 rpm.
    when the car cooled down restarted and the light went off but has done this a couple of times whilst stuck in traffic.
    would water in the bottom of the filter cause this rough running?

    Water in the fuel is never a good idea. Long term it can cause all sorts of damage. Water in Diesel doesn't happen so much now, due to high turnover of Diesel in the UK. You possibly could have filled up at a garage that was on the dregs in its tanks and got contamination in your tank. The filter will have caught it, but fuel supply to the engine may be hindered, hence your problems.

    You do need to get this drained.
