Hello ,Can any body help please?. Ive just bought a citroen dispatch 2.0 hdi, It seems to lack power, if you hold the throttle on steady 3000 revs when driving the van surgers and you get black smoke on and off, if you disconnect the air flow meter it stops smoking but still has power loss, i have tried a new airflow meter but the problem is still there, changed the maf sensors and fuel filter and made sure that the van had a tank full of fresh fuel Any ideas Please

well since the starter was only 2 months old i am betting its an ignition short. When u turn the key, the solenoid on the starter engages the bendix gear with the engines flywheel and then energizes the starter motor. And when u release the ignition the solenoid and the starter motor should de-energize. hope this helps you.
Engine ECU is located in the engine bay, on the driver side(RHD). Body electrical has no ECU (earlier models). Citroen Berlingo uses what is called 'Multifunction Control Modules'. It has 2 of them. One is located in the steering column switch assembly and the other is incorporated inside/underneath the fuse/relay frame in the engine bay. If your Xantia is late model, it may adopt the Berlingo system but I have not seen one that does.
look under and around the iar filter /engine cover for a sensor with a vacumn pipe attached ,think thats the renault but i just cannot remember but it causes this fault ,failing which check the fuel filter for sucking in air by pressuring the system with a electric pump and looking for leaks connect to pipe from fuel tank and outlet to where the pipe connects and then run pump to look for leaks ,the fuel filter is at the front of the engine ,then if no leaks check the reading on the mass air flow sensor ,a OBDII cheap code reader will do this by checking all the pids it will show timing and air temp ect and this vehicle can be read with one depending on year
please state year and model of this engine as they do change ,i think its a citreon something like a berlingo or maybe a 306 or whatever but need the year as the common rail is different to the injector pump model or is it a dreaded my favourite motor and thats a renault
Try blanking off the EGR valve where it mounts on the exhaust manifild, they dont do much usefull but are unreliable and leak ehaist gasses into the inlet, also they take pressure off the torbo leading to over fuelling.
Hello, I think Suzuki offered Peugeot/Citroen Diesel engines in the earlier models but started offering Renault Diesel in 2006. I believe that the gas motors were all Suzuki. If you find that this info to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating. Thanks, Gator241
