Engine Jerk During Acceleration

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 2005 2.2 i-ctdi saloon. Love it to bits, but.....

Now and again, when I accelerate fairly hard in 2nd or 3rd, the engine will die momentarily and then pick up speed as normal. Not the end of the world I know, but quite disconcerting when you are in mid-overtaking mode.

I have also experienced this at it's extreme causing the car to go into limp-mode very occasionally until the vehicle is left switched off for a while.

Anyone got any ideas as to what the cause might be?

Appreciate any help on this :)

Have you changed the diesel filter recently, fuel rail pressure could be dropping.

When you go into limp home mode have you read the fault codes?

Could also be turbo overboots occurring
