About this car I love so much :

This Citroen is delivered to my wife and was one of the best deals of my life.

Powerful, economical and reliable QB, just have given me joy today. :D

Zero mechanical breakdowns, today only replace a tube circuit air conditioning and a battery.

We call it affectionately as .... "our fridge" ...

... it is white, it's cold inside and when opening the door turns on the light.

I do not intend to sell it and I see myself in 10 years to lead it.

It's a Citroen C3 1.4HDI 16V SX Pack , January 2003 and currently have about 78,000 KMs.[/b]

The choice blank was the best option to cope with the summer heat ... Heats least strives less air conditioning. ;)

Disadvantage: It gets more dirty ... but for that there is water for washing. :D Sometimes,it rains a lot :lol:

The engine is extremely compact. There is not much room to fiddle around ...

When I finished the starting trial (up to 1500 KMs) figured consuming 3.6 litres \ 100 KMs on highway and 5 litre \ 100 KMs in town.

Currently in consumption is 6.5 litres \ 100 KMs in town.

I assume that the engine is ageing and clearances ... you may need to tune the injection pump and replace the nozzles.

The EGR valve access will be very difficult to predict, since she will meet with mounted partition for the passenger compartment. I intend to take it apart along with the pipe to perform their cleaning. Over the years it clogs and the engine will lack breath.

Still not notice anything like that ... but not spinning.

Here it started to rain and I had to shelter in the refrigerator. :o :P :P


Since the ancients said: "In April ... thousand waters ..." ( In portuguese it rimes - we loose the meaning on translation... :oops: )


As this vehicle was owned by me from the beginning, that the water takes on the windscreen washer is distilled. Here there is no limestone or clogging. The hoses are new to tighten.

The distilled water will have her tassel because the dehumidifier produces about 200 litres of it per year.
I give it to the family and friends and I just had to send it down the drain ... ;) ;)

When I see unconscious people, in fuel stations implementing public water supply in cars ... just makes me want to cry and give them a spanking in the ass.
They are killing the automobile ...

I had to change a tube from the air conditioner when the 60,000 KMs. Was ruptured in welding.
It was a manufacturing defect was detected but out of warranty
Just over occurs to me now. Do you criticize and ask ...

An participated forum ... is a live forum.

Hi Paulo,

Your car looks good in white :)

I wouldn't bother cleaning the EGR valve until it causes problems, should be good for many more Km yet...
Same for the injectors - if they are working well then leave them alone !
Just service it at the reccomended intervals, checking the required items.
My C3 1.4HDI 16v has just covered 115,000 miles (approx 170,000 Km) without major issues

The translation program makes me smile :)
