2000 Citroen Xsara L 2.0 HDI turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Great car, if the wiring had been carried out better..
I own a 2001 Xsara 2.0 HDI 90 hp, and have had intermittent starting problems since I got it in October 2005.
It's been back at the Peugeot dealer I bought it from about 7 or 8 times. They have on 2 occasions replaced two broken wires, replaced the little brown relay etc. It has conked out on the motorway, but are now at a loss of what to do...
Lately, about once or twice a week, it will not start, and only when the wires are jiggled about will it do so. The fuel pump (at the tank) is priming as I can hear it going. The engine is turning, but does not seem to get the fuel!
I wouldn't say I am my whit's end, but it is very inconvenient to say the least.
Most people tell me to replace the car, but as it has only 70,000 miles on it and it going well (when it does start), it seems a shame to give up on it. If possible, I'd rather get it repaired, but no-one seems to be able to do it. Any tips on how to proceed?
It's great when it starts, purrs like kitten etc.
If it doesn't start, well you can guess...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
