    Default Engine wont rev

    Hi

    The last few days my car engine has stopped reving. It is a 2006 1.9CDTi (120). The problem occurs ususally within half a mile from starting the car so it will be cold, it has always happened at a junction so this is worrying.
    When I slow the car to a stop to turn at a junction then when I try to move off again the car wont rev above idle and it is difficult to move as it starts to stall when letting out the clutch. After a few minuts of constantly pressing and releasing the accelerator pedal it starts to rev again. There is no fault light on the dash. After this fault occurs it dosent happen again for a while.

    Has anyone any ideas

    Thanks

    Dave

    Ive not always had a fault light come on when its been the egr valve, have you removed and cleaned??, the symptom's sound very similar, gutless no power and have to feather the throttle to get revs. not even having enough power to pull itself along hardly!!.
    look in how to's for cleaning the egr valve EASY job dont forget to clean the hole out where it bolts to the manifold.

    Hi

    Thanks for the info, I phoned my local VX this morning and he though it may be that as well and wanted £140 for a replacement valve. Is it easy to clean, I will have a go at this tonight.

    Damm the EU and their emissions rules !

    yes very, i use paraffin or carb cleaner, you need 10mm/ 13mm/and a torx bit cant remember size. be carefull and you can reuse the gaskets easily keep hold of the lower/oval gasket when removing vertical bolts as gasket may fall into engine bay.its better to do when engine is cod as these parts get HOT!.
