VEHICLE: 2013 Citroën DS3
ISSUE: Engine stalls and lacks power
DIAGNOSIS & SOLUTION:
We have a 2013 Citroën DS3 in our workshop with running issues. The vehicle lacks engine power and the engine speed will not increase above 1500 rpm. We have carried out some basic checks on the air and fuel systems but have not found the cause of the fault. Do you have any ideas?
There is a known fault to check for on DS3 models with EP6CDT (5FV) engine code. The probable cause of the fault is likely to be due to damaged teeth on the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor reluctor (fig. 1.1.). Check crankshaft position (CKP) sensor reluctor teeth for damage and realign teeth if necessary. Carry out road test to ensure the faults has been rectified.
