Re: What's made you grumpy today.

Car not right - very short on power, changing down gears and mpg has plummeted, however after reading the threads not sure if its my EGR needing cleaning, how to do it, or to even bother perhaps pin 19 or LED lights would be easier , certainly get more friendly advice !


Might just give it a go on Tuesday whilst the turkey soup is cooking !

What do you call bad on fuel, got mine down to 27 to the gallon, but was told,, as long as it kicked in, leave bonnet

its the 1.5 dci , during the last two months the mpg has dropped down from high fifty's to low forty's aver 120 miles less between fill ups & I seem to need to change down a gear quite often. Car has only done 184 K next service due 186 (had cam belt etc. done at 182 k but made no difference).


any idea's ?

Re: What's made you grumpy today.

Two simple things that can really affect power and MPG.
Air Filter, EGR .

May not be those but I would be looking at both before delving any deeper.

Re: What's made you grumpy today.

Could the maf sensor be dirty and causing over fuelling? That would cause a significant drop in power too...
