CITROEN. Reduce the fuel consumption of Citroen
How effectively to decrease the fuel consumption of Citroen.
CITROEN FUEL ACTIVATOR — a device which is installed on a fuel hose of any Citroen car and significantly reduces fuel consumption by 20% and improves the engine performance.
CITROEN ACTIVATOR reduces fuel consumption by 20% of any Citroen model.
At the same time, the engine operation of Citroen is significantly improved.
Activators are installed on all models of Citroen and are used in all types of fuel — GAS, PETROL, DIESEL FUEL.
1. Reduction of any fuel consumption in citroen by 20%; 2. A slight increase of citroen engine power; 3. The increase in motor-resource of citroen engine; 4. Reduction of CO and CH in citroen exhaust gases by 30-40%; 5. Regular and dynamic operation of citroen engine; 6. Reduction of carbon deposits in citroen on pistons, cylinders, spark plugs, fuel injectors, catalyser and exhaust pipes;
Examples of installation on different models of Citroen.

ANY FUEL (petrol, diesel, gas), by going through 10 magnetic fields of THESE ACTIVATORS, for a short time changes its structure and properties, and it BURNS more fully and REGULARLY. Due to this, the Citroen engine begins to work much BETTER.
Usually, it is already seen after 10-20 km of run of the car Citroen which has an installed Activator.
Imagine, how your Citroen engine works with VERY GOOD FUEL … That is, we have quite different (better) fuel.
You agree that chopped firewood burns much better than whole logs … The same thing happens also with car fuel.
FUEL with Activators BURNS more COMPLETELY, it doesn’t leave any carbon deposits on pistons, cylinders and spark plugs.
On Citroen diesel cars, the injectors are not polluted, and there is no black smoke even at throttling at free running.
Knowing where the fuel hoses are located, Activators at Citroen are installed within 5 minutes (see «INSTALLATION»)
ATTENTION! The main difference of THESE ACTIVATORS is that there are 20 magnets placed in them, which for a short time CHANGE THE STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES OF FUEL. In other similar Aktivators which can be used on Citroen, there are only 2 powerful magnets which are not able to change anything in the fuel (see «ANALOGUES»).
The water after the magnetic treatment is soft, very tasty, thirst-quenching, with the correct acid-alkaline balance (pH = 7,1 — 7,5). At the same time, it is a STRONG ANTIOXIDANT, and this already prevents ONCOLOGICAL diseases.
Repair Citroen for untrained car owners often becomes a real test. Citroen cars literally attract the eye-smooth outlines of the body and sophisticated design make them easily recognizable. Car owners appreciated the high level of comfort and manufacturability of Citroen cars — they have no equal in their price category. But, like any car, they also require timely maintenance and replacement of defective parts.
Features of Citroen cars The popularity of these cars began to gain about 10 years ago — then, many new technical equipment of the car. At that time, the official service Citroen could not please car owners widely spread network of branches, and many were forced to repair cars on their own or use the services of universal service STATIONS, specializing in cars of all brands. This is what caused the emergence of many myths about the unreliability of French cars, although in fact the problem lay in the inability of mechanics to carry out a quality repair of the car Citroen . Cars are equipped with a large number of sensors, and often the cause of the fault lay in the failure of one of them. Not knowing all the features of these cars, auto mechanics often carried out not appropriate operations with the motor and electronics, instead of diagnosis and error relief. On the road can be easily seen as adapted to our conditions, the car offered by the dealers, and independently driven by the drivers of the model from European countries. Despite the positives, the Citroen is not devoid of inherent characteristic «disease», some disturbing positive picture.
The Engines Citroen Motors require strict adherence to maintenance regulations. The slightest delay in the replacement of oil or filters can cause the motor failure. Gasoline are subject to oil consumption, but not more than 1-1.5 liters per 1 thousand kilometers — higher rates indicate the need to replace oil caps or piston rings.
Replacement belt gas distribution mechanism is carried out every 100-120 thousand kilometers. Previously, it was required to visit the service to replace the belt every 60 thousand km, but later the manufacturer doubled the interval. A small defect in the oil channel in the engine capacity of 1.4 liters, installed in Berlin, is the cause of oil in the coolant. Repair Citroen Berlingo is to replace the cylinder head gasket,and this usually needs to be done every 30-40 thousand miles.
For gasoline engines Citroen is very important to change the candles in a timely manner-otherwise possible failure of the ignition coils. The frequency of replacement of candles is set within 40 thousand kilometers. On motors with a capacity of 122 HP is not quite correctly installed humidity sensor-condensate accumulating under the valve cover can lead to sensor operation. There is no reason to worry in this case — any professional service will reset the error from the on-Board computer in 2-3 minutes.
Citroen gear box The mechanical transmission is highly reliable. The only problem place is the clutch unit, the service life of which is 100-120 thousand kilometers. Change the clutch car owners will have only assembled-repair kits are not provided. Notorious among many fans of the Citroen auto gearbox AL4 French production. According to the assurances of the automaker, it does not need maintenance and oil change throughout the life of the, but in practice the situation is somewhat different. 1. Oil change. Unofficially, the Citroen service advises to change the oil in the box every 30-40 thousand kilometers-this will help to significantly increase its service life. 2. Oil filter Automatic transmission . It is non-removable and can only be replaced with the box. Therefore, it is very important to pay special attention to the quality of the transmission oil and its timely replacement. 3. Valve Automatic transmission. With heavy traffic on an unheated box, solenoid valves often fail. It is expressed in the appearance of the shocks when shifting gears and burning the icon of a fault in the Automatic transmission on the dashboard.
Buying a used car with a gearbox, you need to pay attention to the quality of the oil and the frequency of replacement — if it has not changed since the release of the car, it is better to bypass such a machine side. Replacing the oil, you can achieve the opposite effect — from the bottom of the gearbox and its walls will begin to wash the accumulated dirt and metal chips, which will lead to a rapid failure of the box.
Suspension and steering Citroen Given the design of the suspension, repair Citroen C4 most relevant. Its adaptation for the Russian conditions was only to increase the clearance-the shock absorbers remained the same, developed taking into account the European roads. For this reason, the service life of the springs and racks of the car Citroen C4 is only 20-40 thousand km, and the frequency of replacement depends on the style of driving. Steering rods serve 25-40 thousand km, and in case of untimely replacement will cause failure of the steering rack, which without this service life does not exceed 100 thousand kilometers. We should also mention the repair Citroen C5-without computer diagnostics to carry out repairs does not make sense. High technical equipment of the car allows you to find out the cause of the fault with maximum accuracy, but it can also produce the opposite effect — the failure of the sensors leads to the inability to operate the car. The C5 model is significantly more technologically and reliably than its counterpart-the hydraulic suspension not only provides a high level of comfort, but also serves for a long time.
Common fault in all auto-silent blocks of the rear beam Citroen, under the influence of road reagents and negative conditions quickly lose their damping properties. Repair of a beam is one of the most difficult types of works, and many skilled mechanics advise not to touch it at all, the benefit on running qualities malfunction of silent blocks practically does not influence. Do not trust the repair of the suspension Citroen unskilled staff — each model has its own characteristics, not typical for other brands. This also applies not only to the suspension, but also the other components of the car, which radically distinguishes them from the repair of cars of other brands.
In the General sense, Citroen-a complex and sophisticated car. For several years, the French automaker has been trying to prove that he is able to create simple and reliable machines.
A lot of good can be said about the engines. Not only are they successful, they are also durable and not expensive to repair. A really serious setback suffered series motors Prince – those that are developed together with BMW. We are talking primarily about the 1.6-liter units: the atmospheric turbo THP and VTi. Despite a number of improvements, problems with the timing chain tensioner and too high oil consumption have not been completely eliminated.
In recent years, Citroen in small models (including C4) replaced the BMW petrol unit with a motor of its own design — PureTech. It has direct injection and turbocharging, but is devoid of one cylinder (R3). While we only know about problems with the crankshaft is a single party, made in Holland. It was made of too soft material.
1.6 (TU5) – worthy of attention
TU5 engine has a very simple design, and any faults can be eliminated for little money. It is found in small models.
The TU series motor debuted in 1986 and is still in production. In the recommended version of JP4, he develops 109 HP Most powerful version, got Saxo 1.6 VTS – 118 HP and Citroen C2 VTS – 122 HP
In 2012, TU5 was set in the budget sedan C-Elysee. 115-strong modification of this engine with the prefix VTi has nothing to do with the infamous unit created in cooperation with the BMW.
The main enemies of TU5 are large runs and negligent service. With age, there are leaks through the seals, but their removal is not expensive. Due to the long period of production and the huge popularity of spare parts for this engine is quite budget.
Characteristic weaknesses are not many. Relatively low durability have ignition coils (from 4 000 rubles) and throttle (from 6 000 rubles).
The owners claim that TU5 is not voracious. In small models, it consumes on average 6.5 liters of fuel per 100 km in addition, the motor is susceptible to tuning.
— high reliability;
— simple design;
— good performance (especially in the version of VTS);
— relatively low fuel consumption.
— a lot of worn-out motors with irregular service;
— problems with ignition coils.
— Citroen C3 I – 1.6/109 HP;
— Citroen C4 I — 1.6/109 HP (2004-2008);
— Citroen C-Elysee 1.6/115 HP
No turbo, no direct injection and no system of variable valve timing. The EW series engines have a very simple design and can easily tolerate the introduction of LPG.
The EW series motors first appeared in the Citroen in 2000 and was offered for 10 years. EW series consists of units with a volume of 1.8, 2.0 and 2.2 L. the Last one is rare.
The best in terms of reliability are considered to be 1.8 l/125 HP and 2.0 l/140 HP, except 2.0 HPi. It also develops 140 HP, but is equipped with direct fuel injection. Unsuccessful engine was installed in the Citroen C5 of the first generation.
The engines of the EW series went to the largest models of Citroen: compact C4, minivan C4 Picasso, two generations of C5, large C8 and van Jumpy. The top version develops 177 HP.
The engine is quite voracious, so some install HBO. It uses a plastic collector, therefore, it is necessary to expensive modern gas equipment.
Unfortunately, currently reliable EW units are no longer used. French concern in 2010 and replaced them with the problem blocks, created, along with BMW.
— high reliability;
— simple design;
— many different modifications, different volume and power.
— more and more worn-out copies;
— mediocre dynamics of large models with 1.8-liter engine;
— high fuel consumption.
— Citroen xsara Picasso-1.8 (at the beginning of production), 2.0 (until 2004);
— Citroen C5 I – 1.8 (115 and 125 HP) and 2.0 (136 and 140 HP);
— II Citroen C8 — 2.0 (136 and 140 HP).
1.6 HDi – better 8-valve
This engine the French have proved that it is possible to create a reliable diesel of small volume. The best recommendations worthy 8-valve version.
DV6 series engine appeared in 2002 and is still installed in Citroen cars. Initially, until 2011, a 16-valve version was offered. First of all, it deserves attention 90-strong version, which is equipped with a conventional turbocharger of constant geometry. Flywheel all versions of a single-mass. In 2009, a wet particulate filter was used. Care should be taken with the 109-strong version (16 valves) – clogged sieve in the lubrication system, which accelerates the wear of the turbine.
After upgrading, DV6 received an 8-valve head unit and an additional letter «D» in the title (all versions are equipped with a particulate filter). Most often, the diesel engine has a capacity of 92, 99, 112 or 114 HP and is characterized by a very good ratio of power and fuel consumption.
Turbodiesel can be found in small cars and even in the second generation C5. In addition, it was used in models of other brands. Due to this, spare parts are easily accessible and have affordable prices.
— good reliability;
— high popularity;
— low prices for spare parts.
— many worn-out copies;
— extension of the chain connecting the camshafts in the 16-valve version;
— Citroen C4 II — 1.6 HDi 8V (92, 99, 112, 114 and 120 HP).
2.0 HDi-reliable and durable
2-liter diesel – one of the best of its kind. He made his debut in 1999. Originally only a 90-HP version with 8 valves was available. A year later, in the list of proposals appeared 16-valve modification capacity of 109 HP in the process of further development of the impact increased to 180 HP, and in Ford-to 210 HP (due to double boost).
Recommendations worthy 140-strong version, which appeared in 2008. Good show options, developing 150 HP and 163 Despite the complicated structure, typical of diesel afflictions are rare.
The 16-valve version has problems with the camshaft chain, similar in essence to the 1.6 HDi 16V. All 16-valve variants are equipped with a particulate filter, the life of which usually does not exceed 200 000 km.
One of the advantages of 2.0 HDi is relatively low fuel consumption. In a middle-class car it is about 7.5 liters per 100 km.
— many versions;
— high durability;
— cheap spare parts and good access to them.
— clogged particulate filter;
— it is possible to stretch the chain connecting the camshafts.
— Citroen C5 II — 2.0 HDi (136, 140, 150, 163 and 180 HP); — Citroen C4 I Picasso — 2.0 HDi (130, 150 and 163 HP); — Citroen C4 II.
Avoid engines (Prince series). They have good performance and low fuel consumption, but have a number of disadvantages: increased oil consumption and unreliable chain tensioner gas distribution mechanism. In addition, the turbo version sometimes gives the turbine, and in atmospheric VTI-the system of changing the phases of gas distribution.
2.0 HPi (2001) is also considered unsuccessful. This is a representative of the EW series, but with direct fuel injection. Here is often a controller fails.
The 6-cylinder 2.7 HDI turbo diesel has serious crankshaft problems. Much better rated successor-3.0 HDi, but because of the very expensive equipment (in particular, piezoelectric injectors) it is difficult to recommend.
1.4 VTi is the least problematic engine 1.6 VTi – the lack of turbocharging means no problems. 1.6 THP-high power gain achieved due to the complex design, which has a number of defects. 2.0 HPi — how to ruin a good engine? In the case of the EW series, it is sufficient to add direct fuel injection. 2.7 HDi-of course, this unit is among the least worthy. 3.0 HDi it replaced in 2009, the 2.7 HDi problem.
