Question about Citroen C8
2.2, 16V, 53 plate. keeps breaking down with 'depollution system faulty'. has had diagnostics with main dealer twice and cannot find fault. car codes cleared, drive car for few weeks/motnhs, breakdown again with same message. citroen washed hands of us, refuse to see us or vehicle ! some one please help ! any advice or suggestions welcome
These motors and some other models with the same system always give problems .Havent done one myself as yet but other mechanics have that i talk too and if this is a diesel which has this system then you remove the particle filter on the exhaust system and make a rear box to fit type job and the sensor you disconnect and solder a resistor of around the 10.000 ohm mark across the sesnor wires to make the computer think all is well .Depends on the year though as to weither this will work satisfactory as a 53 plate sounds misteriously like some sort of secret code to me .Just noticed it says petrol 16v Hmm have to think again here as no idea with this one only ever see a diesel variant but if the cap fits so to speak have a look to see if has got a filtering out exhaust system if not then sell it quick and buy a ford or a VW

yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

Probably a short brush in the alternator, if you can find a specialist auto electrician it is possable to replace the brush/control pack but most places want to stripe you for an exchange unit.

CV joint is dry! in the straight position it is not working but when turned, either way, it is working hard and if dry the balls stick and click.
