Ah I see... I think I have seen the place when I went to Segambut.

Thanks bzman for your kind explanation on EDC. Mine is mechanically
controlled. Old school diesel.

guys,

had my mechanical injectors cleaned and check the pressure rating. My XTD
now starts easier and during hard acceleration very very much less smoke.

hi xantia,

i reckon u have a Citroen... do they have a Bosch fuel pump?

Yeah.. servicing your pump will be worth it. But if i remembered correctly Xantia is a pretty recent
model (less than 5 years?).....so unless you have done some serious mileage, perhaps not necessary
yet to service pump.. Smile

John,

Yes its cheap. The only bit of trouble is taking it out from the engine.
Mine was cleaned and they put in some shims as the pressure delivery
pressure had decreased.FC for outstation travel is fantastic. Big Smile
