    Hi can anyone help I have a auto trail camper 2005 with a fiat Ducato 2.8 engine when it's reving and working hard the engine management light comes on and some times it starts to hold back but if I ease off the throttle a little it goes out and it's fine
    Thanks
    Will

    Sounds like the same problem I had with mine. The plugs on the end of the injector harness fail.
    try removing them & spreay with contact cleaner, if it improves then get some replacement ends.
    The dealer will try to sell you a new harness for £700 but theends are about £20 each.

    I thought the problem was the leads are too short and get pulled off with vibration.
    The new harness has longer leads.

    The cannot pull off with vibration as they lock on.
    The seller is me. I sold them, they came Individualy wrapped. I cut open the old one & it was blackened inside where it had been arcing.
