Strange hesitation / lack of power during run to manchester
Me again! (Yes sorry to be a pain in the bottom)
Anyway, Bertolli exhibited some strange symptoms on the way to Manchester on Friday Night. A lot of highspeed cruising, which was fine. Then standard Friday night accident occured on the M6, leaving me in stop start traffic for 35 minutes.
The weird thing was though...As the traffic eased up and I could put the power down again. It picked up with a distinct juddering thru the power...it wasn't even the standard your trying to accelerate in too high a gear type thing. Got rid of it by dropping a few cogs tho
On the way back I also experienced, what I feel to be slight power loss in 6th gear on light throttle openings.
I'm beginning to wonder whether or not I need a new EGR. Have just ordered the ELM cable to see if theres anything irksome logged in the ECU...and also so i can force a DPF regen.
Current MPG, on normal load at motorway cruising speed (80 - 85 ish) was seeing 36-38 mpg'ish
