tell me more nev, why do you think that.i hope thats all it is.:thumbs:Battery.
many thanks my good man. i'll get my elm lead out.In my case (identical symptoms on a 2.4 JTDm) it was a bad connection to one of the injectors. (I don't think Nev does oil burners, which may influence his thinking)
I was told by the engineer who fixed it that even if this is an intermittent fault the open circuit causes massive voltage spikes to be sent back along the wiring to the ECU and it all goes wrong as you describe. Your dealer/AA person can read the fault codes to tell what has gone wrong, and you should avoid running the car for too long in this state because it could cause damage.
hhmmmm, interesting the clutch pedal does ride very low and i have to pull it back up with my foot.Another option, clutch pedal sensor malfunction.
It was me you spoke too I said £592 inc vat for the total. I also broke it down in to parts labour with and without vat!the person on the phone said somthing like £680 which is only £20 off of £700.
phone will be on.
There were a number of fault codes reported for my injector as well, but the advice (dealer, other diesel injection specialists, and even this forum if you look hard enough) is that wiring faults will cause perfectly good injectors to be condemned by the engine management system.It was me you spoke too I said £592 inc vat for the total. I also broke it down in to parts labour with and without vat!
I also told you what we had done, check wiring to injector, fuel correction values on examiner, and injector return test! This showed injector no.1 to be way out and to need replacing.
