    Smile 1.7CDti Power

    Hi Ryanm,
    Got my 1.7CDTi van in December, that was the first thing I noticed. Sluggish in 1st and 2nd, then okay in the rest. It does respond better when the engine oil has warmed up, but you still need to rev the nuts to get it going to a decent speed to change into 3rd. I had it serviced and the mechanic tweaked something in the engine mapping with his PC connected. It was a lot better acceleration in 2nd. The next thing I was looking at was a tuning box from DTUK. Sorry can't be more helpful.
