Especially when I crusie at constant speed for e.g on a highway at 130 km/h,the car acts like this:<p>I feel something that for just a milisecond,something like the car press the clutch and depress again.There is a miliseconds of interruption.This is not continiously happening but sometimes in a daily driving.<p>For some weeks,I have been having the ENGINE symbol on the screen.Can be related with this?<p>I went to dealer but the VIDA shows nothing.<p>

Re: (xenophobic)

Fuel Filter? How many miles do you have? That would be my next step...

Re: (xenophobic)

Get an OBD reader. They are about 100.00 USD. Once the code appears plug it in and store the code. Now you can bring the reader into the dealer and show them the code.

Re: (MASH)

I would bet good money that it is the fuel pump or the fuel pump control module. It seems like a fairly common problem.

If VIDA didn't find a stored code it's unlikely that a code would spit out on the OBD-II connector, and buying an OBD reader would likely be a waste of money.<p>The mandatory outputs on ODB are mostly emissions related. For example if there is a fault in the evaporative control systems it would throw an OBD code but not necessarily for a fuel delivery stumble.<p>BTW JRL's correct: If you have a steady CEL, you should have a code that VIDA can "see". Even a transient fault should store a code.<p>If you're having no luck, ask your dealer to get the local tech rep. involved as an escalation path.<br>
