Hi,
I purchased a Lexia and managed to install it.

From my leakoff test I knew that I had two problem injectors.

But I don't know what numbers they are. (How do Citroen number them?) Does injector 1 start from the front passenger or drivers side?

Anyway the codes that I am getting are :

P0102 (Intermittent fault, Flowmeter signal short circuit to earth or open circuit)
P0272 (Intermittent fault, Cylinder 4 injector circuit Acyclism)
Permanent fault, Cylinder 1 injector circuit injection time correction outside limits)
Permanent fault, No resetting by accelerometer - No periodic injector resetting

I am taking my car into the garage in the morning to get all of the injectors tested.

Do you think that the injectors could possible be to blame here.

They will refurb my existing ones so I don't have to worry about issues with recoding the ECU.

Thanks

Injector number 1 is at the transmission end.

Faulty injectors quite probably.

MAF or MAF wiring or engine ECU. Lexia gives loads of tests to be carried out to prove/disprove MAF, but some require a special tool to complete.
