    1.6 HDi 2004 307sw

    I can't believe this bloody car. I have only had it a couple of months, it
    is the most I have ever spent on a car and I have already had more problems
    than 20 years of driving crap old cars has produced.

    Today's problem is (I will ignore the fact that the radiator fan switches on
    and will not turn off again until the battery has been run flat on every
    journey. That is another post in a minute), The car seems to run fine when I
    am going through the gears and speeding up but I have noticed that when I am
    cruising along in 5th at about 2000 revs the car will start to shudder a
    lot. So bad in fact it is similar to only running on 2 pots in a petrol car.
    When I put my foot down again it seems to go OK. There are no problems when
    slowing down either. It seems to only be when going at a steady speed. At
    other speeds it also seems to be going along fine and suddenly loose a
    little power. It is quite noticeable to me the driver but probably not to
    the passengers. It doesn't then pick the power up again, I then have to make
    a slight depression on the pedal to maintain the same power.

    The second power problem that I have mentioned has been like that from the
    start. The first but main problem, the juddering, I have only noticed
    recently. About the same time that I noticed this I have had an anti
    pollution fault appear and the engine warning light come on. It stayed on
    for 2 days but has now turned off and hasn't appeared for over a week even
    when the power problems occur.

    What could this be? Has anybody else had the same problem and solved it?
    How? Could the lambarda sensor cause this problem and is it likely to be

    You won't have a Lambda sensor on a diesel.

    But seriously, the only way to find out is to get the codes read. This
    does not mean a trip to your local Pug stealer. Many professional
    diagnostic kits will also read most of the HDIs., Just find a local
    garage which has one.
    The DEC Superscan is but one.

    The HDi does have a Lambda sensor. Failure can cause the dreaded
    antipollution fault.

    can it's failure cause an intermittent fault like mine?
