My 1997 2.0 16v Xantia works well except that at engine speeds between 3400
and 3600 the engine appears erratic, as if it is only firing on two
cylinders. It has been doing this for over two years and is only a problem
when overtaking. My local garage has been unable to trace the fault but
suggested it may be the coil pack. I am reluctant to take it to a Citroen
garage to have checked on their computer at their costs. Has anybody else
had this problem and know the solution please.
Our car seemed to have a ghost pressing the gaspedal now and then and when
you hold in the clutch it went from 1000 to 3500 rpms for no reason. It was
also hard to start. I don`t have the english word for this part. I think
it`s "idle running" or something, if that is the word it, it could be an
"idle running controller" (now that is directly translated word for
word...lol). Anyway, they changed it and now the car is better than ever.
This was a 99 xantia 1,8 Exclusive. It was also a very cheap part. £120 in
norway, work included, so I guess you`ll get it even cheaper in any other
part of the world...
