Hi,

I'm having a bit of a problem at the moment.

When I'm accelerating, the car kind of jerks back and forth and loses power, then it will speed up again.

When I first drive the car in the morning it is fine but after about 10 mins of driving it starts doing it.

The garage ran the egnine on a machine to see what codes came up but everything was fine. It's going in the garage tomorrow to be flushed out and have a new filter fitted. He seems to think this is the problem, as it's been very low on Diesel alot of the time.

Any ideas?

If you have been running low on fuel it could well be that the injectors may have some crud in them try some injector cleaner for Diesel engines and see if this helps

I put Diesel injector fluid in and it did improve it slightly. Prior to the fluid it was smoking out the back aswell, but since putting the fluid in it doesn't smoke, but still loses power.
