The car was ok each time it went to the garage. We handed over the car to
the "big chief" at the garage and he went to work with it one day. Problem
started.. The car gave to much gas (sorry for my english here, but coming
from norway I`m not sure what the parts are called in english), just like
you pushed the pedal it went to 3000 rpm when you had your foot off the gas
and it was also hard to start now and then.
The problem was a "regulator" that controlled how much rpm the engine should
have....lol, this is really poor english, but anyway, they had tried
cleaning this earlier with no success, but today they found out what the
The car is a 99 Xantia Exclusive station wagon, metallic, bumpers and all,
original colour. 1,8 litre engine. I`m just posting the result here so that
anyone with a similar problem can have this checked.
I got this car this fall and it`s a fantastic car. 116.000 km, not much at
all, and it`s in mint condition with leather seats that looks new. The
previous owner is my neighbour, and he`s the "big chief" at the garage as
well, so I know the car is well looked after.
