Could anyone tell me roughly what speed their C3 (1.4 HDI) idles at. Mine
is idling at 300-400 rpm. This is a little worrying as it stalls regularly
and often judders when pulling away. There also seems to be a lot of play
both on the clutch and the accelerator. Also yesterday, for the first time,
I noticed the power steering turn off and the steering go very heavy; this
continued until I pulled over and restarted the engine. Is this a common
thing? I took the car back to the dealer but was told that nothing was
wrong (admittedly this was before the power steering problem).
Thanks very much,
I used to have a Berlingo 2.0 HDi
Funny steering was the power steering pump (but if your's is electric you
won't have that).
Stalling and low idle speed was the EGR valve.
Also had a problem with the accelerator potentiometer.
If that helps
