Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, I have a V reg daewoo matiz and recently it has been struggling. It's normally a nippy little car and accelerates quite quickly but seems to have been losing power recently. It feels like it's going to stall when at a standstill and jumps as if it's going to pack in when accelerating. I had the fuel cut off switch replaced this time last year in case this has anything to do with it? It's fuel consumption has increased but probably because I'm having to use more juice to pull away from junctions etc. Any ideas what's wrong with it?
When was the last good tune up done? fuel filter changed? air cleaner? check emissions vacuum system for leaks..repost findings

ok how much water and oil is it useing it could be a headgasket problem it may also have a blocked air breather pipe take the oil filler cap off if it has a thick mily residue on the cap it could be the sign of eather a head gasket or back pressure on the engine which means the engine may need replaced hope i have helped you -but the swift is usualy a good car as my other half runs one

Definitely not the fuel pump. A fuel pump will either work, or it wont. It could be a fuel filter, though unlikely, again if it was clogged there would be nothing. Could be spark plugs/wires, a faulty coil pack, Could also be a handful of sensors (o2, MAF, are a few that come to mind). Does it have a manual transmission? If so can the car be started without engaging the clutch (in neutral)? If so check the 2 clutch sensors attached to the clutch pedal.
Probably a sensor. Go to Advanced Auto parts and have them pull the code. Then google it. Or check out Forums.vwvortex.com

Unfortunately the F9Q (1.9 DCi) has 3 common faults, these are as follows
1. MAFS Mass air flow sensor - this will cause initially hesitation but eventually make the car really slow as the turbo waste gate will no longer open.
2. EGR - Exhaust gas recurcultion valve - a result fro the forementioned, the MAFS failure causes high carbon build up, this sticks to the valve and siezes it open, this causes an inlet pressure fault code
3. In-line fuel pump - this pump is a 3bar pressure pump that really plays up then gives up the ghost, hence *non starter* it could be hidden away somewhere on the chassis, you need to look for it, it could be mounted under an wheel arch etc. It is about 5" long and 2.5" diametre, it is inline so a pipe at either end and 2 wires going to it.
I bet my last dollar thats what is up. It fits in with what you said.
Let me know if UK I may help more
