2012 Freelander 2 2.2 diesel,manual, stop start. 28000 miles. Drives and performs very well apart from a slight hesitation at about 2000 rpm.
No EML and no fault codes stored. Sold this car about 12 months ago and has had this problem for most of that time. Under normal driving most drivers would not notice the fault, but my customer is aware of it now and can demonstrate it easily.
10 Months ago we replaced the clutch pedal switches which improved it temporarily.It's more noticeable when pulling out of a junction ,changing from 1st to 2nd and driving gently. You can actually hear the hesitation with the L/H window down by listening to the change in the air intake tone.
Disconnected turbo actuator and vanes seem free with free movement.It feels like it needs lubrication as there is a faint squeak to be heard when moving the control arm, but no resistance or sticking.
Possibly a turbo issue but they don't appear to be a problem.We have substituted the throttle body but no change. Any thoughts or advice on this will be much appreciated.As it stands we have no codes to point us in any direction and are running out of ideas. Apologies for the length of the post but trying to give a full account of the issue which may help.
