Hi any pointers would be welcome and thanks in advance for any suggestions.
My car seems to hesitate a bit when accelerating gently sometimes. When I push pedal hard it doesn't bother it at all, only when pootling along keeping up with traffic. (pressing pedal lightly) Seems to be happening around 1800-2000 revs. It feels as if there may be a blocked fuel line/filter.
Fuel filter replace at last service, (very recent) dealer ran fault code but found nothing. Getting concerned as warranty runs out in a few weeks!!
Trying to tie it up with other circumstances, and it may be linked to the Dpf. It was doing it today and when stationary at lights the engine revved higher than normal(1000) the Dpf light came on a bit later too.
Hesitation seems to have gone after the light went out(filter regenerated?) but maybe coincidence
Also any clues how to clean a bit of grit from behind accelerator pedal? A stone got stuck there a few days ago and tried the dyson, but still stuck. I can't see how to "unhook" the pedal. Seems like the grit it at the bottom near the hinge.
P.s. The hesitation isn't caused by the grit! This only happened the other day
