Well Ive still got the problem but no answers Its been in the garage more than its been at home this past month. They replaced an injector and cleaned the dpf which made starting better but theres still this very sluggish acceleration from standing (making it impossible to get up our drive first time). It also makes it quite dangerous to pull out into traffic as you never know if its going to stall.

Many thanks Ill pass this on to my garage.
While Im at it -is it worth me buying the fiatECUscan software I see mentioned on here Will it tell me more than the garages software can (theyre an indepandent garage not a fiat dealer). Can anyone advise which software and which adaptors Id need to diagnose my sort of problem There do seem to be a bewildering variey of lead options. Any how do i know which version Ive got - the compatibility list shows four different 1.3 Mjet 16V types called 152119263 and 223.
Hello there Rob and welcome to the forum Unfortunately Im not sure of the answer to your questions but Ill have a few words when Im in work tonight with the fitter and see if he knows about the pressures etc. In the meantime Im sure someone else will be able to help you
When was the last service Thinking blocked fuel filter but that wouldnt allow a cold start either. How many miles on the clock May be worth running some injector cleaner through the system or even taking them out for a cleanProbably worth also checking the various sensors and the EGR for functionality. Bit odd really its usually wont start from cold with diesels and dodgy compression or heaters.
Thanks for that i suspected filter too but all but ruled it out for the same reason you stated. That said im gonna get another one today. Last service... not sure about 6K miles ago i think it was just completed by last owner as i bought it. For some reason the fault is intermittent. For example i just nipped out got the engine to full temperature and when i got back i turned it off and then decided
Hi mate Had the same problem with my dobby now with 507000 on the clock First off check the earth strap that goes from the neg battery terminal to the front of the gearbox.... thes can corrode and cause poor starting.. If ok then check the egr valve i not stuck open.... pain in ass job but may as well clean it out when you are there And lastly check the butterfly flap in the housing on the right of

posted a week or so ago regarding my grandads 03 doblo 1.9d non turbo and its irregular starting. well i changed the glow plugs (all 4 in less than an hour i impressed myself) checked the crank sensor was present (i found another one zip tied up out of the way) and yes there was. carried out a full service -fuel and air filter were both black and oil filter was loose weeping oil all replaced and now

Hi Just an update on the performance. The car has now covered more than 4000km and is starting to loosen up and start to move. Also the fuel consumption has reduced it is now on 6.7 litre100km. I am very pleased with the doblo - and my previous car in UK was a Jaguar XKR with 400 bhp OK - no real comparison in performance or style but the doblo is comfortable and practical and more than adequate for the conditions in Turkey. Steve
in the mean time- Been driving it about (well got to make a living). Went through a small ford and 2 minutes later the engine would not rev past 2000rpm. About an hour later back to revving at up to 4000. starting to make me wonder if the tapping & lack of power could be the injection pump The tapping seems to get louder when the engine is at normal operating temperature. Any more ideas anyone cheers Franc
badflat battery or poor engine earth. have you tried a jump start (im always here )

Many thanks Neil neil when did you last change derv filter or drain it thats usual poor starting on diesels no matter what make
You really need to get the codes read to find out what fault its seeing otherwise youre just guessing unless there are any other symptoms ie. poor running lumpy idle difficulty starting etc. Without knowing what the problem is you could end up just throwing money at various things which have no issues.

Check the earth strap as these can snap or corrode which can lead to poor starting. Yooj
I have mentioned previously on here how few small object storage options the latest version has so I fully agree. I would like the armrest to be a couple of inches higher. The demist is one of the worst I have used on a modern car its simply hopeless on mine and I have reduced the problem a bit by having 3 large bags of silica gel in the car to absorb moisture. The other thing I dont like is that when
Yes I think the next step is a good auto-electrical man. Ive try 2 sets of each type of clocks so its now most likely some sort of bsicontrol unit either that or it needs some sort of calibration (Ive tried leaving the battery off for 10m) I had bought the van off a polish chap with poor English so Im not even sure what clocks I should be using also it had been parked up for 6-8mts & the battery was

I was hoping yours was not going to be like mine---see my post 2000 miles from home But its begining to sound like it. My problem started with intermitent starting hot or cold.

Check the air filters. Cant vouch for the doblo but the Panda has a design fault that allows rain to get in giving the symptoms you describe. If its wet youll need to get the rain out of the bottom of the air box as well as change the filter. Silicone the hole directly above the air box on the scuttle as this is the failure point. Also remove the two multi-plugs by the battery and apply a small squirt of WD40 there. poor contacts there also cause rough running.
actually starting the engine because rpm is so low as it would be dead. This valve is 100% computer ran so there arent any low rpm dongles that push it open when needed as it was done in mechanicly driven ones Should I also attempt to clean it The MIL would suggest something more than dirt problem. Wouldnt want to screw this anymore than it is now. I dont have rpm on the dash because its a doblo
Hello I had to remove the valve from the car becuase doblo has poor access to it. Was very simple with proper tools. I cleaned it with a paint brush and extracted petrol - dont really know the english translation so fix me if you know the word just like Ive done with carburators so its nice and shiny. Results are really amazing. No trouble starting on cold low rpm returned to steady and it feels very smooth. But the most important part - the MIL havent returned after 400km since I cleared it from errors and the ECU reports all tests were completed. Im very surprised because I hoped for p0105 to go away but I had another problem with p0420 about the cat converter. Was ready to at least see pending DTC with the p0420 but it wasnt there. Thanks for your help with this. Retards from fiat service would drain the last penny from me on this as they wanted to disconnect LPG ECU etc...
