Thanks for the advice !
It was in the shop today and I got it back this evening. The mechanic
tightened up a loose injector apparently.
We’ll see how it goes on the trip tomorrow - 1500 km.
The garage did to confirm an apparent problem with these engines,
although failed to give any details
If I get any more feedback, I’ll post.
