The figures you query don't appear on the 16v (delphi) injection information so I can't help much there to compare.

It looks ok to me, considering the other cylinders too. But I don't know what Citroen say is acceptable.
You may get different corrections if you program in new injectors or even some reconditioned ones.

No, this is High Pressure Diesel with a common rail. Its the future of diesel and its quieter and more efficient.

I can sometimes hear the turbo sing when the windows are open and I am accelerating, but its not easy to hear.

I know the 16v has an inlet manifold pressure sensor

But I don't think the 8v has the sensor, so I don't know how the computer gets the value for turbo pressure.

Also my car is not very responsive.
Could be a turbo problem, worth investigating.

Try a visual inspection on the vanes and see if there is movement in the bearing.

Sorry,

The turbo inlet pipe is labelled, remove this pipe to gain access to the turbo vanes
citroen c3 turbo inlet pipe
citroen c3 turbo inlet pipe
then look in to the turbo where you have removed the pipe and you will see something like this (vanes are arrowed)
turbo vanes damaged
turbo vanes damaged
These vanes are damaged, look at the edges. A worn bearing has allowed the vanes to hit the housing.

The bearing allows for rotation of the vanes, but should not allow any lateral movement. Run the engine to see the vanes spin and when the engine is off, feel for up/down/left/right movement of the vanes and look for damage to the tips of the vanes.


This post has lots of pictures of the turbo stripped down for repair. You can see the vanes removed from the turbo and the central shaft that runs on the bearing.

Have you checked the basics, like change the air filter and fuel filter? before digging to deeply :)

EGR valve can also cause problems with power, its not too difficult to remove and clean.

THANK YOU! i hope you didn't took those pictures just for me... THANKS!

Filter looks like new, oil filter and oil changed 2months ago.
i was thinking about cleaning EGR stuff myself when i saw some topic here in forum and video in youtube how many crap there can be!!! :)

Why pople "delete" EGR? if it's so bad and usless why car manufacturers use it in the first place? for pollution just?

PS. nice video!
