:confused:
My 117k 2005 2.0hdi SW has been in and out of the garage more time than I care to remember :(

Currently I have a hesitation/misfire at 1400 RPM.

DPF was changed, new fluid & counter reset @ 110k miles,
EGR has been replaced & recoded as previous stuck open.

Car is still hesitating!!!

No clues from Planet! no error codes showing up.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

Am losing the will to live, as much as I love the car, spending £1000 on a car worth £5000 in a 6 month period is getting depressing and it's still not right :(

Lordy, where to begin? dozens of things could be at fault which wouldn't throw up a trouble code. Tired injectors in need of an overhaul, a vacuum leak,tired turbo actuator, etc.

If you're not a spanner monkey yourself, then the only alternative is to get her to a decent diesel specialist.

if it helps (!) the car is rather lethargic in the lower rev range.

If driven agressively, the hesitation is not noticable and the car performs normally.

Fuel economy is down to 500-550 miles per tank :(

Turbo sounds ok, no white smoke.

The car is going back to an independent pug specialist next week.

He tried to do a forced regen last week but car would not permit.

sounds like another expensive trip :(

Why is he trying to force a regen when it was all replaced, refilled and reset 7k miles ago?

You shouldn't pay for an investigative session if he can't find the fault (you wouldn't pay a plumber that didn't fix a leak). Sounds like they haven't a clue. find someone else.

Car will not regen,

Has only done so once in last 7k miles (and I do 60+ motorway miles a day), so new filter is getting blocked :(
No fault codes showing up either.

There was a vacuum fault which has been remedied and the hesitation is not so evident now.

Car has been referred back to Pug as there is a later ECU download available for the EGR, am hoping that this solves the problem once and for all!

hopefully this is not another expensive fix.

Anyone else had this problem?

will have a look into that thanks.

The main problem is that the car will not complete a regen.
Could this simply be down to the Engine Management or am I looking at something more sinister?

Car is now fixed!!!!! :eek:

Peugeot in Preston had it for a day, turns out it needed and engine management download.

£63 (Diagnostic cost) later I have a fully functioning Pug for the first time since I bought it :thumb:

Hurray! :lol:
