    Icon4 2002 Berlingo 1.4L starting issue and idle hiccuping - HELP!

    Hi,

    My 02 Berlingo 1.4L manual has a problem my mechanic just can't fix. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Basically two related issues are making life with it a misery:

    1. It always fires up but then immediately dies again unless I absolutely use no gas; if gas is used it takes up to 10 non-throttle turns for it to finally remain idling.

    2. Unless I absolutely feather the throttle it will hiccup and hesitate (but not stall) before moving forward, or on the move - eg, if overtaking on the freeway.

    The latter is especially alarming and dangerous when trying to drive across a busy road. Heart-stoppingly so.

    That's it.

    My flummoxed mechanic - who is a Peugeot specialist but not a Cit dealer - said he checked and/or refitted the:

    * map sensor
    * 1st and 2nd oxygen sensor
    * throttle body
    * fuel pump pressure tested
    * crank angle sensor
    * coil pack
    * coolant temperature sensor
    * knock sensor (replaced)

    My car has a regular non-remote key and no central locking - an observation noted after a fellow Frogger's ordeal with a C3 1.4 recently.

    I'm based in Melbourne and any advice or help would be immensely appreciated.

    Please help! Currently the hiccupping Berlingo is being shamed on the reliability front by my early Morris 1100 and Holden JB Camira SLX manual museum pieces, so action is needed immediately!

    Many thanks in advance.

    Cheers,

    Byron

    Possibly the throttle potentiometer.
    How many kms on the clock?

    Hi, the Berlingo has travelled 188,000km.

    Also, it appears the throttle/pedal position sender/switch 'A' circuit has been checked. Engine at idle is showing 350kp, at engine off it is 320kpa and after sitting for 2.5hr 220kpa, according to the mechanic's report. If this helps.

    One bad injector?
    Fuel rail regulator?
    Fuel quality issue?

    The throttle pot is an electrical part, so am not sure how the kpa readings relate to it.

    1635.Z9 should be the part number. Peugeots' with the same engine (TU3JP) have the same part.
    The non-genuine version is not expensive. Worth trying if you are running out of options.

    Does it have a fuel pressure regulator? Perhaps this may be sick.

    I say does it because I think most modern FI systems have this incorporated into the fuel pump tank unit, as opposed to a separate device on the fuel rail.
