Customer Question

I've got a 2005 2.0 Xtype Estate, and she's started to form some issues I've lost approx. 4MPG and a little power but now I've noticed at tick over she's lumpy, and I have had issues sometimes on warm startup were it feels she's only firing on 2 (yes I know diesels don't have spark plugs but that's what it feels like,
it is serviced every 3-4 months all filters and oil, and o have recently had an aftermarket EGR fitted any ideas??

Hi there good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response

Ok from the symptoms you have described I would suspect an injector/s issue

Difficult starting when warm is an indication of worm injectors on this 2.0tdci Varient

I would advise having a leak off test done in the injectors to check for excessive leak off

Also itis not un common on these engines to need 1or more injectors at the same time

But a injector leak off test should be carried out before going any further

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice


Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day
