citroen c8 no power

Post by m300td » 17 Nov 2014, 11:28

Just woundering if anyone could help I have a c8 2.0 hdi
I brought it as a non runner (snapped belt) and ended up changing the engine but It starts and runs fine no management lights on but no powet on take off almost as If
It has not got a turbo
Checked pipes no splits no engine warning lights read with lexia no fault codes there is a slight missing around 3000 rpm but not all the time any ideas would be appreciated

MAF sensor - I had same problem on my C5 HDI no fault codes but no power, new MAF sorted it fine!

They have a reputation of having a rather short life.

Check the air filter - moisture can get sucked in and soak the filter and MAF, corroding it.
