Hesitation when moving off

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps,

Just a quickie.

2.2D T25 Avensis Hatch

Noticed this week Im getting some hesitation when moving off.  Its a though the car is stuck to the road.  it only lasts a couple of seconds when it does it but feels like a lifetime and then is fine.  Only happens when moving off, no power loss otherwise and is running sweet.

I suspect its the EGR valve but did wander about the fuel filter although this was changed 12 months ago.  Wander what you chaps think.

This has happened before but only last a few days and then went away.  The EGR valve has been cleaned within the last few months.  Wander if its sticking.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Pull off both as it's an easy job and cheap to try..check all vacuum hoses too.

Just a quick update to confirm the EGR valve was clogged again, after only cleaning it maybe  year or 1/2 ago.  Gave it a good clean, fired up and after  few days all back to normal.  Hoping this might help someone in the same position in the future.
