Car juddering/red engine light/ now wont start!

Post by Brightmore92 » Wed Feb 10, 2021 8:19 am


I have an issue with my Nissan Qashqai '13 plate 1.5 diesel. It started juddering when trying to accelerate, I then tried to run it at high revs in hope that it would clear but all that done was brought the red engine light on! Tried to read OBD but no fault codes were found.

I have since replaced a plastic fitting near the engine which had snapped ( a common fault so I've been told ) I believe it to be related to the air intake turbo - pretty straight forward I thought?!

Since doing so, the car will now not start. All I am getting is a clicking noise and the interior and dashboard lights flickering. Unsure now if it is the battery or something related to what I replaced? The car did start prior to replacing the plastic air intake part albeit a little slow sometimes.

Any help would be massively appreciated.
