Ongoing CDTI 150 issues.
I had the dad's motor over the weekend and to say it is gutless under 1.8k rpm is an understatement!
I was driving it over the weekend and went to London and the car just crawls under 1.8k rpm and its downright dangerous!!!
Even on the motorway, it just wont drive at 50mph in 6th gear, I was having to go down a gear to 5th and even 4th just to get me above 2k rpm so it would continue. At one point I was in 6th going at 51mph, then it gradually came down to 47/46 and doing about 1.2k rpm, had to kick down to get it back to 50 mph! Disgraceful!
ANYWAY, I have just had a chat with Vx dealers and told them that I have done the EGR Valve and now it has B-NEW one on there, have also told them about the 3rd Injector, air filter, Millers additive, etc and the lady on recpetion asked if the system had been updated since the EGR repalcement?
I asked do you mean has the code been cleared, if SO, then YES it has. And she said NO, the system will need updating with a Tech2 to say it has been replaced as the system is still showing as code present, even if its been cleared! She said the car ECU is reading the as EGR being closed so the code needs to be cleared and updated to show back as open state!
I said is this causing the wobbling at idle, she said more than likely as the car has got to much/less gasses going through the EGR valve so its running bad, blah blah blah blah blah, etc!
First I've heard of this....can someone please assist as im tempted to get it booked back in, £50.00 for Tech2 Diags and system update!!!
The car is still every now and then throwing up a "P0400" EGR Valve code which im clearing once every 3 weeks, had to do one on Saturday before I took it!
So is she right!?
PLEASE PLEASE !!
She also said that if we have suspicions with the EGR valve, if I can give them the receipt for it, then she can get me a replacement just to eliminate the process!!
In advance, Thank you again Vec-C members and I am dying to hear your feedback on this!
