Hesitation

Post by CrunchieR on Sat Mar 09, 2013 9:48 am

Right... So i was happy out yesterday second ball joint fixed and the car was smooth as fkuc driving... Then on the way back from town tonight i noticed it was hesitating when i put the foot down mainly in 2nd and 3rd gear between 2500rpm and 4000rpm then it starts pulling properly again after that... Car is idling grand, not over heating... So im thinking its the usual CL1 issue EGR valve or Dirty fuel injectors... Anyone any ideas? Unsure

Yeah I get you, but it really could be something simple anyway like carb cleaner or just valve cleaner, I use that stp petrol and valve cleaner the odd time just to keep it kinda clean ish don't know if it makes a difference at all!! But nice to be safe.

It would be worth changing anyway, Thumbs Up!
Might not be the same but I saw a dc2 lately that stopped pulling for 1000 or 1500 revs and it would go on again after that hesitation.
New fuel filter and no hesitation.
It might not solve your problem but its worth doing IMO.

Ohh yeah that happened my van a few weeks ago, there was dirty fuel going around topaz and it blocked up all our vans fuel filters, but the lost of power was more random.

Sorry for thread hi-jack Smile

Wife's Ek is doin this. But it only seems to happen when the cars a bit warmed up. Feels perfect from stone cold. It does splutter at warm idle too though..

Sound obvious to anyone?

I put some STP injector cleaner in this morning gave her a good run down the m50 so i will see how she is later on tonight... If that doesnt work, i will clean the egr valve, then some carb cleaner and last resort O2 sensor... Thanks for the help lads... Thumb Up!
