Just bought a 2001,1.9tdi galaxy ( 42,000 miles on clock) and find the
throttle to be slow to respond.. If I approach a junction and slow down in
second gear the car creeps before a surge is felt as the revs touch 1500. I
might be unfair in comparing to my old Peugeot 806 with 309,000 miles on the
clock but the Peugeot pulls from 1000 revs in third gear without any
hestitation. I feel engine timing may be at fault, but the ford dealer is
having none of it .
The ford dealer tells me if there was a problem with the engine management
electrics a light would be visible in the dash panel.. I wish I could drive
a similar aged galaxy to compare, but can't find one.. Anyone got any ideas
or has anyone had a similar problem ?
