Hi Guys,
Thanks for having me here. this is my first post. (Not exactly the first post id like to be posting)
I have my 2009 Civic Type S GT 2.2litre Diesel for over a year now.
Ive two problems with the car, one old, one new.

The new problem is is when driving in 3rd 4th and 5th and just cruising with the foot barley touching the accelerator, when you press the accelerator just a little bit more, the car starts to chug a lot, this happens all the time now. to stop it you have to press the pedal hard.
The second problem that only happens very intermittently, as in it would only happens once or twice in the month. You go to accelerate hard and the revs shoot up from 2000 revs to 3000 revs and the car doesn't move, you just hear the engine roar.

The car has been modified with a front mounted inter cooler by the previous owner. Not sure if the ECU has been touched.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

The revs shooting up is clutch slip.. Used to happen every now and then in my old 2.2. Used to happen every 10ish thousand mile but seemed to sort itself out, I reckon it was down to a lazy adjuster. Drive gently when it happens or you'll be needing a clutch very soon.

Not sure about your first problem but 2nd definitely sounds like clutch slipping as @nturnb states.

If you've got an fmic fitted, i'd hazard a guess previous owner would've remapped the car. Chances are you could be looking at a new clutch. Best to take it easy, no booting in low gears. Worth finding out if it is remapped, so if u need a new clutch then you need to take that into consideration when looking at your options.

Hesitation from light throttle could well be a sticky or tired EGR valve.

The revs issue sounds clutch related. Don't boot the throttle hard in high gears from low revs, change down instead. The pressure plate can't clamp the torque but should auto adjust at some point and stop the slip. At least for a while. It's unlikely to fail but do be careful overtaking as it's bound to slip when you least need it too.

Had similar problem new egr valve solved the problem, but I think a cheaper option is to clean them!
Certainly at over 600quid. Its not generally the egr valve itself that needs a clean, more the port in the inlet manifold.

I'm with Farqs 100%, sounds all the world like the symptoms of a dirty EGR and clutch slipping. There's and excellent how to guide on here for cleaning your EGR.

Hi howndid u solve the problem and how much did it cost. I get slight hesitation from light throttle in low heard but never high.
Such as slow driving in traffic. May e around the 1800 to 2000rpm area
