I have a 308 1.6 110 diesel (2010)
It normally runs fine but every couple of weeks the car starts to run rough and really drinks fuel. If I pull over and switch off and then back on again it clears the problem. I travel about thirty miles each way to work so the car gets a good run. I have no idea what the problem is.
Can anyone help?

Possibly it's doing a regeneration of the diesel particulate filter, i.e. burning off the soot particles which have collected. This would cause the symptoms you have described and is a normal occurrence about every 300 to 400 miles or so. You should ignore it and continue to drive until the regeneration has completed, it should then go back to normal.

I booked it into the garage and they checked it over, no fault found. Since then this fault has occurred three time in the last week and a bit. The first time about half an hour after collecting the car from the garage. Sometimes, the loss of power is bad enough to give the impression that the car will stall when I change gear. The car is still under warranty for another couple of months so the pressure is on to get it sorted.
