MCSF & Hesitation @ 1800rpm
156 1.9JTD16v with map.
Recently I've been having a few niggles, Gearbox all but dry after muppet/mechanic who replaced clutch didn't top up G/box fluid and left the upper bung out allowing 3ltrs of water into the gearbox. Having had it looked at seems OK although changing gear isn't as smooth as was before so this is playing at the back of my mind???
Now when running I'm getting a very slight hesitation around 1800rpm, just very slight then onto 2000rpm all is well on turbo kicks in, do I need to clean EGR as she's a little smokey and would this be the cause of the hesitation?
Had oil change last week at the same time as the above, then two days later had my ARB changed. Get home on the night and leave for a couple of hours, then pop to shops.
As I turn to MAR I get the dreaded beep,beep,beep, go to stealer engine oil level Low as in empty. Turn to MAR again oil level is at 50%. Manual check oil level is OK.
This continues for the next 4 days about once per day, then on Saturday I get Engine temp to high on MCSF although gauge is at 70 having only been run for a mile from a cold start.
Fiatecuscan shows no faults and levels all OK?????
Does anyone think all the above could be some way linked, or is it just MCSF gremlins???
