I have an 04 Lag II dCi, when changing gear the revs aren't instantly dropping, and in fact give a slight kick before they do.
Also, when coming to a stop, the revs are dropping low, and has stalled on occasion, but as soon as stationary they rise to normal again.
It has been suggested the latter is the
pressure sensor on the plastic intake pipe going from the intercooler to the inlet manifold?
I tried one from another car but the orange light on the dash came on, the glow plug (curly line)one and what looks like an engine block (usually
symbol), as soon as the original was put back this went off, they where a different shape (plug at 45deg on the other one, original is totally flat) but I don't think that matters?
Also, I noticed that the reverse lights weren't working, so removed the plug from the switch and fed power through it to see if the lights would work, in order to check for continuity, which they did, so this would suggest a faulty switch.
Thing is, after I did this, the car wouldn't start without the clutch pedal being depressed, suggesting the car is in gear, which it wasn't, after a while this recified itself but has now returned.
I have noticed that the switch that the clutch pedal is meant to depress when fully up isn't actually touching the pedal, it's about 1mm away, though pressing this in by hand doesn't make the car start without the pedal being depressed.
Could this be down to the faulty reverse switch?
The car recently had a new
(not second hand).
When you start the engine the fan fires up straight away, and stays on until you turn the engine off and the shut off valve activates, as soon as the shut off valve activates the fan goes off, so it's not been wired directly to the ignition as some do if there is a faulty TS.
Temp is just below half way which is normal, but I'm sure my last Lag II dCi didn't do this?
Any help greatly appreciated.
