Citroen C4GP 2L petrol fault codes

Post by Craigie »

I have a 2007 C4GP 2L petrol 78000 miles.
Having a recurring fault code which happens intermittently with no difference in driving. Occasionally when idling there's a bit of hunting/chugging but very occasionally
Fault codes are P0170 and P0172
Could these be the coil pack or something else? Any help would be appreciated

Those errors relate to the fuel injection.

P0170: Mixture regulation: Coherence. Basically the fuel trim is out - in this case too rich - see the other fault below:

P0172: Mixture regulation: High stop. The fuel trim is too high. The engine ECU reads parameters and data to adjust the fuel trim which includes the MAF / MAP / Oxygen Sensors to measure exhaust gasses.

So in this case the mixture is too fuel rich with not enough oxygen.

Common culprits could be in no particular order: Oxygen sensor, fuel regulator, worn plugs, a dirty MAF sensor.
