C3 Aircross Engine fault
Posted: Sat Nov 13, 2021 1:47 pm
I have a C3 Aircross Flare1200 reg Sept 2019, Demo with 2700 miles bought from dealership in Sept2020. Early Nov 2020( after about 6 weeks) I started the car from cold, the engine management came on with spanner and wee engine symbol. The engine rev was about 1100 idling ,but not smooth, would not rev and fan came on and stayed on for 5 or more minutes after shutting engine down. Called out Citroen assist, who plugged in diagnostic and got a non specific engine fault code, He got car going but advised to take to dealership, which I did, they looked over did diagnostic, checked plugs and various intake and fuel bits, but no specific answer to prob. Got it back and it ran for about 6 months and did it again, but cleared and ran again ok until yesterday ( seems to be bi-annual), with same issue. I let it sit and eventually got started spanner gone but wee engine light on and got home, 30 miles with no issue, tried it again today and same issue. The dealership I bought it at has closed and my local dealership can't look at it for 2weeks !. All Citroen help numbers are closed till Monday!!. Anyone experienced same engine issue?
