106 diesel idling

Unread post by woodhead722 »

When I rev up my 1360 diesel, the revs are slow to return to idling speed, as if you were releasing the accelerator pedal slowly.
The cable appears free and has a small amount of slack,but I do not know what else to check.
Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry, but is this shocker near the pedal or the pump end of the cable?
THANKS!

There could be two such dampers involved and both fixed to the pump.
On a Bosch pump as fitted to the td xantia there is the famousely useless damper on the front of the pump, which operates through the entire range of the accelerator lever.
Then there is a small squat damper about 40mm dia. at the back of the pump, this one only operates during the last few millimeters of accelerator lever travel.
Get out with the spanners if they are present, and wang'em down the garden[:D]

Thanks both of you.I'll have a look ASAP, more miffed off with oil leak at mo, which seems to come from head cover front passenger side and/ or under vacuum pump.Not had car long enough to know if these are dodgy for leaks as cylinder head needed doing following purchase!
Cheers.

The TUD / XUD diesel engines are renowned for head gaseket failure !
I speak from bitter experience ( see Citroen threads ).
