Citroen C3 1.4l 2007 weird issue

Post by Alexander1960 »

So I just acquired a new automobile four days ago and I already have a major problem. This issue occurred today. When I start my automobile, it shuts down rapidly unless I hit the gas pedal or get fortunate. The engine also misfires. RPM hovers around 500 and occasionally exceeds 1000. The radio no longer starts on its own, and when I put on something electrical (fan, lamps, etc.), the car drops to 0 RPM and shuts off. The digital panel says "Anti Pollution Problem," and the engine light on the dashboard would not go away. If I rev the engine, it continues to flicker. Please help.

Hi and welcome.
By engine light do you mean the yellow EML light or the red Charging light?
Cheers.

If you are getting a flat spot, stalling on returning to idle, a lack of power, unstable idling then this can mean a faulty engine speed sensor or the teeth of the speed sensor target, but you really first need to have the vehicle diagnosed for any fault codes that may be present.
