new c5 member saying hi to all

Postby killer29 » Sun Feb 28, 2016 2:49 pm

hi all and thank you for letting me join, I have just bought a 2002 2.0 hdi c5 with a few faults, but I would like to say that the car is absolutely brill in the comfort area and nice and big, but my main problem is when driving for about 7/15 miles it can start to cut out when at lights and struggle to start if it does, second is if I put my foot down the engine and service light come on and the car losses half its power like the turbo is not working any more, there seems to be a little black box thing at the back of the engine bay with 2 rubber pipes coming from it that have been cut, now some one told me that the dpf thingy has been taken off but have no idea any help would be absolutely great cheers all. ps I would put a pic up but don't know how to yet .

Welcome killer :welc:
There are a few possibilities there.
Have the vacuum pipes been sealed as this could affect the turbo operation?

Best thing would be to have someone run a diagnostic check on it.
Some of the members have the Lexia kit and offer diagnostic sessions at very affordable prices compared to the dealer prices.

If you take a look in this thread for a list of members you may contact -PM is best method - there is also a map link there to make it a bit easier to find someone close to you.

There is a guide to uploading pictures here.
PM me if you get stuck and I will help if I can.

cheers not sure what iv done wrong will work on that but thank you, anyone got any ideas as to were these pipes should be going to??
and iv tried today taking the maf plug off and it makes no difference and iv had it plugged in and a friend said its telling him its something to do with the turbo but hes not sure, the car just keeps kangarooing after about 15 miles then starts to try and cut out iv changed the fuel filter but no better.

If disconnecting the MaF makes no difference, then there is a problem in itself.

Never fit a cheap one, only originals last so don't waste your money on cheap in this case.

It really needs to be put on a LEXIA, guess work is expensive. Have it diagnosed before you start swapping parts out.
There is a map with members who have one in the Super Sticky pages.
