Hello

Hi,
Just joined this forum after buying a 2006 Doblo 1.3 Family MJET.
What a way to join a forum as I need help already! Engine Failure Warning!
Just great that this forum exists, so I will post my problem on the Doblo section, if I can find it, and hope someone can help.

Sorry to hear you are having problems already, especially on a car thats not that old ):

Re: Hello

Thanks for the welcome.
In brief--Retired, I live close to the Northumberland coast, too many motorbikes and cars, (I must get some common sense and cut down) 2 dogs and a partner. Notice how the wife/partner comes last, a real northern trait

I have a house in Bulgaria and travel there every year overland to stay and to my daughters place, she lives there. So need a reliable roomy vehicle to travel in. Looking to stay there late summer, back home for short visit and then travel to Southern Greece hopefully for the winter. Then return via ferry over Adriatic to Italy and wind my way back. Well that's the plan---I hope.

Re: Hello

Hiya, Welcome ETC! First step is a code read, either at a garage or buy a cheap code reader off e-bay. Once you have some codes get back to me & i'll try to help.

Re: Hello

Hi Magggers,
As it was over Easter and from two previous experiences I decided to go down the diesel cleaner and 2stroke mix route. Running like a dream now, no EML and great mileage. I normally do all of my own maintenance, but now reluctantly have to join the real world of code reading. I am am an absolute virgin on code reading.
Can you point me in the direction and type of a reasonable code reader/cables, and even possibly one that I can read and reset bits like the engine oil service. Or do I need one from ecuscan.com and if so what do I need?
2006 1.3 Family Mjet
Thanks

Re: Hello

Well, for quick stuff at work i just use a cheapie i had from e-bay for 30 -ish. Most of the cheap ones can do OBD2 which is what you need, the service reset is done using the trip button, just google it. I'm with you on the injector cleaner route, as an example we had a Nissan Terrano in recently which needed 800 odd of new diesel pump, We filled the filter with cleaner & popped another 2 in the tank. Left it ticking over for an hour or so, now runs fine so well worth a try. Trouble is with modern diesels the tolerances are getting so fine it only needs a bit of gumming up to cause a problem.
