2002 Citroen C5 keeps dying on the road

I have owned cars since 1980, and never experienced ANYthing like this. Since last December, ie for 6 months, our 2002 Citroen C5 Exclusive has repeatedly died on the road. The engine gets jumpy, the message comes on saying Anti-Pollution fault or Automatic Transmission fault, etc. Then the car goes in to a shop (several different shops). One time, the problem ''went away'' only to return a week or so later (a shop in So Jutland kept it a week, drove it around, found no fault); four times, the shop (the licensed Citroen dealer here in Aarhus) has found some expensive problem to fix - drivetrain replaced, air intake housing, hydraulic line, ignition ''spole'', etc. - only to have problem return again. I have spent thousands of dollars on this, with no satisfaction. It does back to the dealer again - this is the SIXTH time - with no end in sight. We have not paid for visit #5, and will not until the darned thing is REALLY fixed. The shop themselves seem frustrated. WHAT could be happening? What should I do?

Sounds like a petrol HDi engine these need a better quality of petrol shell ultimate etc never supermarket own brand (less cleaners &additives)

if so use lots of redex and premium petrol should clear itself as the fuel system cleans itself.

Replace transmission fileter, remove and clean idle air control valve, clean fuel injectors if you have them, change fuel filter, plugs, wires and distributor should solve the problem.

Is it petrol or diesel. I'm suspecting from this its perhaps a 2.0 HDi?
If I am correct, look at having the lift pump in the fuel tank replaced. Many of these fail in this manner. Often caused by poor quality fuel or use of home-brew BioDiesel

Why does my citren c5 not rev?

C5 uses motorized throttle body. You need to get it connected to a Peugeot/Citroen scanner e.g. Lexia 3 and get it reprogrammed.

My wipers go mad on occasions and then seem to reset themselves.

The C5 has rain sensing wipers which sometimes act like this if the sensor which is in the middle of the windscreen at the top is obscured ie the glass is dirty.
