Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

Seems you got all the gremlins at the same time :( No it is certainly not normal and not an optional setting. Optional is (on soms models) that all doors lock when you start driving, ie at some speed. My coupe once did the same and had to be towed. Since then i learnt the habit of garagists of openi...

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

As suggested earlier, looks like my cooling fan has stopped working and the mechanic needs more time than is available to me for repair. I need to get from lisbon to London (in about 3 800Km legs). I'm told that motorway driving should be ok and that any overheating problems will arise if/when i si...

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

That looks ok. A bit expensive, but you'll probably get value for money: fast delivery and no fuss when you want to return it in case it doesn't work. They all work for the diesel, don't worry. I bought mine at aliexpress . They are about half the price there. But shipping takes longer, up to a mont...

No problem, you're welcome :D
I've now got XP running on virtualbox on my mac and am about to buy my copy of PP2000.
Don't buy the software, buy the Lexia cable. There will be a CD with software that comes with it.

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

Wow, long story but i like to read :wink: I will try to give you my best answers to your questions We took the car for a drive and reached 160 kph before I lost my nerve and asked him to slow down. Good, that means no "limp mode"! He had disconnected the vacuum inlet from my EGR valve and stoppered ...

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

One test that I did carry out earlier was to rev the engine and feel the effect on the intercooler hose and it was pressurised. Can I assume from this that turbo is kicking in (and that the vacuum chain and actuator are good) Up to a certain level. Best is to measure the boost pressure. Your mechan...

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

Yes, that is perfectly formulated. Here is a very interesting document. On page 23 (pdf page 33) you can see the diagram of the air flow. The interesting part: DW10 air flow.jpg http://www.406oc.co.uk/download/file.php?id=3410 As you can see: by default, the waste gate valve is open, so the exhaust ...

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

For the lack of responsiveness: i think you should indeed check the turbo vacuum actuator. Either the solenoid is not working / not connected or the vacuum pipe is plugged or leaking. On your model (same as mine), the vacuum is operated to operate the turbo: no vacuum = no turbo. The solenoid is on ...

Re: Lumpy Idle

That's exactly my experience, it takes 1-2 weeks for the contact spray to do its work. Can't explain why. Had this with the Saxo, engine management light going on and Lexia software reading a fault code that indicated a wrong lambda sensor signal. Spraying the connector helped, the fault code came b...

Re: Plip key battery replacement

There are testers for this, see e.g.:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/TV-Video-and-H ... +RF+tester

The frequency is usually 433 MHz.

Might work, i have no experience with these devices.
