    Posted: 15áSepá2017 at 8:20am
Good morning

I have a 1.5dci MY12 qashqai

Recently I am suffering intermittent power loss from above 3000 revs, the car stutters and then won't rev changing down compounds the problem by loosing more speed
At times I have found myself at 40mph on the hard shoulder waitin for it to sort itself out
After a while it sorts Itself out and is fine

Sometimes it brings no lights on in the dash
Sometimes red engine management light along with ESP and the light next to it (can't remember)
Sometimes these will then stay on until ignition is turned off and on
Sometimes the Red light switches itself off

I've had green flag out to read the codes. But there is none stored and so they can't shed any light on the issue
I'm loathed to take to Nissan as they will want ú80 odd quid to read the non existent codes !!!

Last time it lost power it was the turbo inlet pipe which I replaced and it's been fine
The car has done 50k miles and is up and down motorway most days so the DPF shouldn't be clogged and I've also run a Forte cleaner through about 3 tanks ago

Can anyone suggest something as I'm literally just waiting to break down somewhere !!!!

Thanks

Have you changed the fuel filter?

The green flag engineer didn't seem to think that was an issue

I haven't changed it, do you think it's worth an investigation ?

Is it a simple job ?

Asking because if OEM filters aren't used it can cause problems.

Also if you used Forte DFC that can kill any bacteria in your tank, lines pump etc to die. It end up as. Black slime that blocks the filter.

Check he label on the bottle to see if it's the one that contains a biocide. I did hear thy brought a new one out that didn't have biocide in it.

Yes I did check that before getting it

In fairness it did this before I ran that through it, but could still be blocked fuel filter

But in general it seems down on power, my wife has the juke with the same engine in, and whilst I appreciate the juke is lighter, it really feels like a different engine

Loads of power and quick off the mark, the qashai just feels wallowy
