    Default C5 2.2 rough running queries

    I have a C5 2.2 44000 kms which runs very rough all the time. Anyone have any suggestions on what may be wrong before I get an official diagnoses. Cheers.

    Twin turbo 6 speed or single turbo 4 speed?
    Has it had a swim at any stage?

    Thanks for query David
    I don't know on either, not my car and it's not with me at moment, owner doesn't know, forgot to ask him about gears, will do today. All I know is 2006 mod. Hasn't been swimming as far as he knows, bought second hand before the flood here. Evidently his mechanic is rubbing his hands together with all sorts of expensive diagnostics. More later.

    Default C5 Hdi problems

    Again thanks David for the helpfull PM

    Gives a basis for when the bonnet is raised. I only posted the question in trying to help a family member [who's latest Cit I've never seen] but who never stops winging about the dealers price for servicing, yet doesn't ask for an itemized account, so he's no idea what he's paying for. Questions culminate in the negative and I fail to understand how anyone can know so little about the car they drive.
    Anyway I suspect this Cit will now follow the previous, traded rather than repaired. I'm retired and don't have a workshop any more, but like many callers, I suspect he's only after some free advice, which they never take.
    So let him pay the $5000. When I tried to get more info, he was in the yard doing topsoil and couldn't be bothered answering the phone. I'm still waiting an answer to my Email. Some people don't deserve a car, and certainly not a Citroen. One day I'll learn how to pick them I hope. Cheers
    5th March and still waiting for a courtesy reply to the Email. Where do these turkeys come from?.

    Friends are easy to pick - its the relo's that are a bit more difficult
    Those people that say I know - generally don't.
