The above vehicles can experience the engine dying shortly after it has started. This could be caused by a malfunction of the immobiliser. Voltage pulses when starting the ignition can occasionally cause faults in the instrument cluster.
If a customer complains about the above error, this could be caused by air that has entered the steering system. The noises are produced by cavitation and occur during the cold start phase in particular.
If the warning lamp for the coolant temperature lights up on the vehicles listed above, the cause may be a defective coolant sensor. The formation of cracks in the coolant temperature sensor can cause the aforementioned error message.
The exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR) reduces NOx emissions in internal combustion engines. This page provides a wealth of interesting information on the most common system variants and how they work.
Replacing the halogen bulb in the right-hand low beam (front passenger side). Replacing the halogen bulb in the left-hand low beam (driver's side).Light sources should always be replaced in pairs — this applies especially for the low beam and high beam.
If the problem described above is determined, the cause could be a faulty switch on the clutch pedal. The switches prevent the engine from starting if the clutch pedal is not actuated or is partially actuated.
Starting behaviour and engine performance insufficient
In such a case, the fuel filter can be clogged. The reason for this could be that, as a result of using the fuel additive, Eolys 176 (fixed by the car manufacturer), a sludge-like mass has formed and then blocked the fuel filter.
Engine control light is on; Vehicle starts up poorly
If one or more of the above-mentioned defects are reported for these vehicle models in conjunction with various error codes regarding the adjustable camshaft, this may be due to a sticking or stiff magnetic valve of the VANOS system.
In the vehicles mentioned above, there is a risk of the turbocharger failing due to water ingress. The ingress of water into the pressure canister or position sensor on the turbocharger may cause damage to the components.
If complaints are made about the above-mentioned vehicle, i.e. that the engine is irregular and not running smoothly and also that the engine control lamp is lit, these could be signs of a defect in the exhaust gas recirculation system (EGR system).
In the vehicles listed above, there have been complaints of the engine stalling during driving and refusing to start again. In this case, the aforementioned problem may be caused by a short circuit in the ignition coil.
