Got a '99 Xsara 1.6 VTR, about two months ago the "K" light (?!) came on
without any performance side effects, a day later the mid-section of the
exhaust broke off and was replaced, at which point the K light went out
again, a few days later the K light came back on, the car seemed to loose
power and occasionally stuttering/misfiring, took it to a local garage who
interrogated the onboard computer which indicated some intermittent fault
with cylinders 2 & 3, the garage replaced the injector header unit and
cleared the faults, this appeared to solve the problem for a week or two but
then the K light returned... Back to the garage, they said it was the same
fault and adjusted the connection to the header unit, this time the fault
returned quicker, again back to the garage, this time they replaced the
connection plugs (presumably to the header unit?), again the fault returned
and has been in this state for the last week. The stuttering/misfiring is
worse when the car is working hard, going up hills, accelerating, but does
do when idle.
Has anyone else had anything similar or got any suggestions?
