Peugeot 3008 hesitation problem

Recommended Posts

Hi My Peugeot 3008 diesel keeps hesitating when pressing the accelerator pedal,it does this mainly at low revs and is the same wether hot or cold, starts very well and is up to date with service etc, took it back to dealer they cant find anything wrong with it.

25000 miles on the clock, any ideas?

Hi it's a manual gearbox,no faults on diagnostics,just annoying having this little lurch every time i change gear at low revs around town,doesn't do it above 2500 rpm.

Cheers. Vulture

i have the same thing with my ford focus recently, ie: turn a corner in second or accelerate in 3rd after slowing down and it feels like youre pulling a caravan with the brake on?.

 

i ran a bottle of redex through no improvment im thinking either pedal sensor or of managment problem

Morrisons fuel by any chance!

It clogs modern injectors, too much bio fuel in it.

Other than that sounds like a sensor or possibly air flow mass if running lumpy on idle.

Same issue here with a 2010 1.6HDI 3008. Car hesitates a time or two between 1700 & 2000 revs and after that perfect. No fault codes... 🤔 

Anybody solve this issue. Garage can't seem to nail it!

had a similar problem with an astra, a product called cataclean worked for a couple years but in the end it was a new egr valve that cured it.

That diesel engine is a "designed by committee" joint venture and is fitted to models from Ford, Peugeot, Citroen, Mazda and Volvo.  Amongst other annoyances they seem to get through glowplugs fairly quickly and that could explain at least some of the various issues described above.
