The 1.6-litre twin-cam engine in your C2 VTR has a hole in each camshaft pulley, which lines up with a hole in the cylinder head. This is where camshaft locking pins should be fitted and when lined up, indicates the correct timing of the engine with piston number one at TDC. You're right, there are no timing marks, so once you've fitted the locking pins use 6mm diameter dowels or bolts if you don't have the correct tools, it's a good idea to add some paint marks to the camshaft pulleys and the crankshaft pulley. The VTR's crank can also be locked by fitting a locking pin through the engine block, just behind the oil filter. This should be done before fitting the camshaft locking pins and can be quite fiddly Citron recommend you remove the oil filter

Hi, have a citroen Ds3 dsport...anti pollution fault, asr/esp, limp mode...need to get out of limp mode to accelerate to clear system... Need help as it's driving me nuts!!!!

the limp mode will not allow you to accelerate until you have fixed the problem and reset the ECM
Limp modes are not there to help ease you frustrations but to prevent costly repairs to the engine and transmission
fix it , reset it then you will have no need to go nuts

Most temperature sensors are mounted on the motor. I have included a diagram for CITROEN 1.6 2.0 2.2 motors


may also be on the mass air flow ducting midway along duct. Fuel injection can't work without it. I assumed this was a 2010 DS3, could you please provide me with the year, motor size, etc.
