    Default C5 V6 Intermittent

    I'm having problems with my 2005 C5 V6 intermittently stalling. The main Perth Citroen dealer hasn't been able to identify it, the problem is after driving a couple of kilometers when coming to a stop, the engine sometimes drops to idle and I can't accelerate away. A couple of attempts on the throttle might lead it to accelerate away, or I may have to turn off the ignition and restart the engine. It doesn't happen that often, but it is dangerous in traffic when it does. No warning lights come on (nor does the depollution light), and although the engine drops to a smooth idle, all the gauges are operational. Any suggestions?

    Frustrating.

    Is "main" north of the river?

    Yep! I'll look south of the river, it will cost a lot less to do so!
