Citroen C4 Grand Picasso, Engine Cutting Out Problem29 Replies
Hi my Citroen C4 Grand Picasso 1.6 HDI Automatic has started to become unreliable (104,000 Km). Last week for no known reason the engine cut out whilst I was driving along at about 75 km/hr. The "anti-Pollution" fault light came on when this happened and stayed on. I restarted the car and drove home. It's worth adding that the car had its CT 3 days before and passed without any problems. I took the car to my local Citroen dealer and he hooked it up to his computer which diagnosed low fuel pressure, and he suspected the fuel filter needed changing. The filter had been changed as part of the service on the car in December and it's only done 10,000km since then, however the job was done by KwikFit and they don't use original Citroen parts so I agreed to the filter being replaced. That was on Tuesday 10th and for 2 days all seemed well, then for no apparent reason the engine stopped while driving along, this time as well as the "anti-pollution" warning light I also got the "parking brake" fault lights lit. I restarted the car, the "parking brake" fault light had cleared but the "anti-pollution light has stayed on. Further road testing of the car has revealed that I can make the car stall if I deliberately run the engine at high revs (by using gearbox in manual mode). I've arranged for it to go back into Citroen next week but I've already spent 163€ on this and I can't keep chucking money at it. I wondered if anyone else has had a similar problem or any sensible ideas about it?
