“Brought my c3 second hand in october 2010 great car...”

Written on: 19/02/2011

Brought my c3 second hand in october 2010 great car had everything i wanted then 2 weeks ago the engine light came on and started misfiring! took it to a garage who spoke to citreon it is a known fault that when the water jets brake it leaks over cylinder 4 of the fuel injector which it then corrodes and breaks!!! the garage put new jets in and changed the way the piping went so it is no longer over the fuel injector, i did have to replace cylinder 4 though and they did show it me! just to let people know as i have read a lot of reviews about the engine light coming on and people and garages dont know why! hope this helps cost me approx £180 to get repaired but i still love my car just a shame citroen made a cock up on the design!

It's not from the washers, it's water leaking from the bonnet through the washer nozzle hole - there's no sealing grommet on it. I had an injector go that way, and the replacement is currently on its way out too. It's a £20 part and an hour's labour, but it's definitely a design flaw.

I have just had the same problem. I was on holiday in France the week before last and the light went on. The Citroen garage in Granville could find where the fault was but did say it must be the fuel injection. Fifteen minutes after it was reset the light went on again. I drove the car back to the UK - carefully. The Citroen garage in Horsham gave me the same explanation. It seems to be a design fault which has been modified. Shame Citroen does not seem to have warned motorists about it. I had to have all four injectors replaced. So over £550 of damaged caused by a £9 part. Not funny and not impressed. The car had been brilliant up to then but acceleration now seems to be better.
