Peugeot: HDI..under light..it is misfiring..air flow meter…

Customer Question
I have a 2.0 HDI...
I have a 2.0 HDI Peugeot 407 and under light acceleration it seems to be almost as if it is misfiring. When I accelerate hard the problem is not there. It has been suggested to me that the air flow meter is the problem. Can you maybe shed some light on what might be the problem? Thanks

Hi there hope i can be of assistance.

 

Is there any coloured smoke from the exhaust when this happens?

 

Does it make any difference if the engine is warm/cold?

 

Does this happen when stationary as well as driving?

 

Thanks Bob
