Hi to all.

C4GP 1.6HDi. 160,000.

Purchased this car recently.
Yesterday had all filters replaced (oil, air, fuel, pollen) and used low saps oil as recommended and also changed Glow plug relay was getting Ghost Code P1351 and also P1446 and P2032.

Car is showing no engine management lights. The only warning is(diesel particle fluid low) on initial start up it then disappears. The D.P.F fluid was checked yesterday and there is about half of the plastic pouch left.

Getting a slight hiccup on acceleration between 1500-2000 rpm.
Sorry if this vague but I can't confirm the full history of the car.
Any pointers as to most obvious would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks in advance
PS. Might be worthwhile me upgrading to premier membership.

Thanks Again.

Very slight 'shunting' when coming on the throttle? Ours has always done it to a small degree and just assumed it's the ECU being slightly foxed by the load and engine speed at low revs.

I wouldn't worry about it.

After doing some searches I have found that maybe my problem could also lie with injectors seals..as well as Egr.
I have attached a photo.....looking from left to right ..1 ..2..3..4...... No.s 2 & 4 are wet with oil is this a classic case of injector seals.....kaput ...

Thanks to all for your help.

Not sure, but I seem to remember that Phil posted that the injectors are numbered right to left. I don't know whether that makes any practical difference

Injectors are numbered right to left, they do look a tad dark but I read somewhere that the solenoid for the turbo vac valve can cause this hesitation.Even said that could be a timing sensor.. Process of elimination really as many Ive read end in different solutions.

If the seals are kaput you would see combustion gas/smoke leaking up out of the injector sealing area...Or maybe the hold down bolts have lost its torque settings..very common

Always best to post an update it's the right thing to do.

My slight hesitation on acceleration was indeed a Sticky EGR valve.

Thanks for all your help and a big thank you to C6 Dave for the diagnosis.

I'll be back

Kevin.
