Peugeot 207 2010

I have a Peugeot 207 1.4 petrol (3 years old) About 8 seconds after starting the engine from cold (audible warning) and it shows on screen "engine temperature too high". The temperature gauge is at max and the red light in the temp gauge is on. The engine lower screen shows "STOP", the engine fan starts and continues until about 6 minutes after switching off the engine. I have just paid out £1260 for a service and a steering ECU replacement on my wife`s Peugeot 107 at a rip off merchant - sorry I should have said "dealer"and I do not want to repeat the experience again. Please remember this is with a COLD engine. Any suggestions please? (1.4 VTi EUS 95 Millesim 5)

Hello John. Don’t know really, but looks like it could be the thermostat sticking. Try asking question on here http://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/207. Always had a decent response and very knowledgable. Hope this helps. Mick from Nottinghamshire

That sounds to me like a problem with your coolent temp sensor. If the guage is going high with a cold engine it will give the ECU the impresion that the car is over heating and to protect the engine best it can it will put the cooling fan on and keep it on until the ECU goes to sleep. Peter H from Lanarkshire

I have identical issue on my in-law’s five year old 207. Have you find a solution to the problem? The dealer talk me to come on Monday to get the sensor replaced. Will this solve the problem? Jozef Orpiszewski from Poland

If it’s DIY, first place to start is temperature sensor replacement: Google it to find its location, check wires for good connection/no corrosion. If that doesn’t work, bring it to mechanic, could be wiring short or damaged ecu AC Motors from Ireland

Sorry I don't know the answer but I have exactly the same problem as you this morning. My 207 is nearly 4 years old and exactly the same scenario as yourself. Immediately after starting the car it went straight to audible sound and red light and message Enging temperature too high - switch off. The cooling fan was still running for about 5/6 minutes after engine switched off. Quite worrying for a non mechanical lady, thinking the car might go on fire at any time. Do you think there could be faulty heat sensors on this particular model? Anne from Cheshire

Yasmine, Wiltshire

Peugeot 1007

Hello, I am looking at buying a 1007. My first question is are they any good? Second what the average running costs - petrol per month, tax, MOT/maintenance etc.? Lastly is there a spare wheel compartment?

Answers

I do 28th overall I have the 1.6 , automatic David from Somerset

I bought a second hand one from my local Peugeot garage and it ticked all the boxes for me. The sliding doors are heavy and so they add to the weight of the car considerably but they are great. People say they are slow to open, but not if you open them with the buttons on the key as you're walking up to the car. Parking on a slope can cause problems but not insurmountable unless your house is up a slope. But of course, parking is no problem. Many people are envious of my ability to get out of the car in what looks like a very small space. There is a monitor on screen that tells you how many mpg you're doing, and so it's very possible to learn to drive economically. I fill up with diesel and for about £50 a fill, I can get 500 miles out of it. Insurance is very low and tax is only £30. It is good on long journeys, though the back seats don't have a lot of room. We don't use them so they're usually folded down so we can carry stuff. It doesn't seem to need much maintenance. There's also loads of storage around the car. If you want a fast car, this is not the one for you but if you want to avoid speeding tickets this car can certainly help. It's easy to get in an out of and the boot is high off the ground too (yes, spare tyre hidden away under the boot) so if you have a bad back it's great. We love our Piggy but it's not for everyone.

Peugeot 407 SW 2005

My Peugeot 407 SW Zenith has so many orange warning lights on that I feel so insecure going out in it. The abs keeps coming on and the ESP symbol has a cross on it as if it is malfunctioning. If I go into cruise control another warning light comes on saying it is not working. Has anyone got any advice? (Zenith auto 2ltr diesel)

Answers

Abs and esp warning could be a result of a defective speed sensor and or reluctor ring. You will need to go onto a diagnostics to find out which wheel is playing up. Not sure about cruise control problem though, don’t believe that’s part of the same fault Humpo from England

Each wheel will have its own ABS sensor. The annoying part is the whole system turns off and leaves you with no ABS or traction control if one sensor fails. You will need to take it to a garage for them to verify which wheel and replace it. I would suggest you replace them in pairs as the other one will probably fail within 6 months Darren Meehan from Northamptonshire

There’s also a sensor on the brake pedal that gives the same fault Ken from Worcestershire

I currently have the same problem with mine The esp light will come on for a few days then possibly stay off for a couple of weeks then come back on again. As for my cruise control I have found that it will only work while the esp light is not illuminated on the dash board otherwise it works fine. If you try to engage the cruise control while the esp light is on you get another warning and it won't work. John millns from Northumberland

Peugeot Boxer

Hi, just trying to get a bit of advice on my 96 1995 cc petrol Boxer. Problem is start it, rev it on the drive no prob, drive away not a problem, as soon as the throttle is off it dies. When warm it`s not too bad but still dies sometimes. No faults in ecu and it`s running very rich, could be why it dies. Lamda seems to be reading right, been on tester at MOT station with reading that high it should be on a drag strip were his words. Inlet manifold pressure reads as it should, temp sensor same, not sure where to look next. Any pointer would be gratefully received, cheers jeff. PS it`s a motorhome

Hi Check the speed sensor which is part of the speedo cable drive on the back of the gear box. You need to take out a loan for the peugeot replacement at about £75 but you can get cheap ones off ebay to test the cure first. Cheers Keith Marchant from Surrey

Hi, after rain my heater box fills with water ,is it an easy fix or should i just drill the bottom of the box and the floor and fit a pipe to let it drain away, cheers.

Answers

Hi I suggest you check the drain is clear and flowing well from your windscreen scuttle. If you lift the bonnet and look through the plastic grill below the left hand wiper blade the scuttle box shoul be clear. Also check that the drain pipe does not dump water over the back of the gear box..not good news. You can drill a small drain hose and put a plug in but it is better to lift out the fan motor first and chect all is ok. Also check it is rain water and not your heater element. If its the heater I can tell you how to change it as I have just done mine. Cheers Keith Marchant from Surrey

Hi. I have a 308 1.6 vi see. It's done 50.000 miles and has started burning oil, only a bit but when it's hot it blows blue smoke out when I've been at idle at lights and in traffic. I've been told there is a crankcase breather valve on the inlet manifold that may be letting oil in, causing the smoke. Can anyone advise on this please? Regards John.

Hi John. My 308 has done 66, it has the same problem as yours. After warming up it smokes in first gear after 3 minutes idle. I only recently got the car and am giving it back to the car sales to fix the problem whilst it's in warranty. They replaced the manifold last week for me as the smoke was leaving through the the old one into the engine bay and air con. My oil levels are low along with radiator fluid, when I got the car water level was over max and when the garage replaced the manifold again the water level was topped past max when I got it back.

had an ongoing problem with my 807, engine managemnet light keeps coming on when the turbos is used in 5th and 6th that also causes the turbo to shut off. any ideas what this can be ive spent a large amount of money trying to correct this problem and about 14month. has anyone had this problem and successfully had it fixed, would be greatful for any feedback thanks

Answers

i've had everything fixed by the dealer, the only fault left is low boost pressure, probably caused by stuck variable turbo blades. the turbo needs taking off and cleaning/servicing. hopefully no need to replace it. causes fault light the thrid time you go over 55mph (full fault test cycle). i bought a £30 fault reader from ebay and i cancel the fault light every time it comes up. when the turbo fails i'll pull the engine out and look at the turbo or just scrap the car. john bailey from Isle of Wight

I just tried to open the roof of my Peugeot 307 CC. The boot opens then nothing else happens! Can anyone give me some advice? (apart from I should not have bought one!) Thanks.

Answers

Linda, I had this problem last year, there is a chance that the roof locks are still in. They tend to seize when the roof isn’t used thought the winter. If you remove the plastic disc from the roof you can see the lock mechanism. Try cycling the roof and watch to see if you can see the locks move. If not gently assist the locks to turn using the silver tool than comes with the car handbook. After a couple of attempts mine loosen off and works fine again. If the locks are moving fine then there is a different problem that needs all little more speciallist tools Andy Welham-Jones from Berkshire

The timing belt info is in the original pack but due to upgrade information do see a Peugeot agent. Now workshop manual, gosh only a Peugeot agent and brother it will cost. The reason is that the electronics alone is going to be a good book! Also there are sooooo many variants that just the body variants is also going to be a good read. Frankly I think no chance will be your economic answer. For example the rear subframe / axle you are going to need a book on that, specialised tools and people that do that as a repair will not for example change your clutch! Unfortunately modern vehicle do not lend themselves to being repaired ad hoc, even putting a tow bar on may affect the cars on board computer. Roger Mew from France

Peugeot Partner Tepee 2008

When I park my Peugeot Partner Tepee and turn off the ignition, an electric fan motor in the engine compartment keeps running endlessly. The only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Answers

I also "habite en France, the reason for the fan to run is to coll the engine down. The fan is NOT connected to the ignition just the cooling circuit. DO NOT attempt to forstall this action it is done for a reason. You can lessen the time by using as little speed / throttle for a few k's before you stop. Now OK the reason, there is little room for the vehicle to dissipate the heat therefore if the fan failed to run the engine bay would overheat possibly causing damage. This is one of the problems associated with jamming the engine bay full of stuff, putting a cover over it to absorb the noise and one underneath to stop road dirt. I hope that helps. Incidentally you will find that using top will knacker your clutch, use more fuel, stop the cat and FAP from working. Endeavour to keep the engine revs above 2000. We actually found that the "how many k's meter" went UP whilst driving like that. The only time I use top is on long auto route. If the engine is not "worked" the FAP filter will block so hammer the engine at least once a week. I run mine at about 1st for 20klms p h 2nd for 50, 3rd for 60 and 70 and 4th for up to about 95klms p h. Using that formulae we are getting silly litres per 100ks in our 2.0HDi expert and the CT came back with almost the same as new exhaust emmisions after 230,000klms we change oils at 15,000, not the extended klms.

Can you adjust the position of the screen washer jets?? Just got some new Jets and they are squirting the screen was over the top of the car.

Answers

Hi, The jets are factory set and non adjustable, are you sure they are flush in the bonnet with the gaskets seated tightly? Also did you buy OEM or cheap copies from ebay, euro car parts etc, the copies are a poor fit. Rob from Cornwall

My Peugeot 307 CC`s nearside rear side lights when turned on flicker on then go off. Any ideas about this problem?

Hi, do they stay on when your not in car? Deborah O’Neill from Leicestershire

Hi Robert. Sorry, I don’t have an answer, but I am wondering if you go this sorted because mine has just begun to do the same Mark from Dorset

Believe it or not but the problem is a blown license plate bulb. When it goes the tail light will just blink twice pause and blink one more time and stay off. Replace the license plate bulbs and all will be fine. My suggestion is to replace both sides. The bulbs are cheap. You will need one bulb per side W5W, 5W all glass bulb. Good luck! Tom from Poland

Advice from Tom on changing number plate bulb is spot on. Took out bulb holder gave it a bit of wd 40 replaced bulb, job done. Be aware dealer wanted to replace whole unit for £430, many thanks to Tom from Poland, job cost me £1 Vince Docherty from Dumbartonshire

Peugeot 307 CC 2009

I have fitted rear park sensors to my Peugeot 307 CC but cannot see where to find the reversing light wire, as most of the loom moves with the roof movement. Can anyone tell me where Peugeot connect these to the loom?

Answers

Hi Terry. Don’t know if you have your answer yet but just in case you haven’t the reverse light wire is under nearside (left as you look from the back) rear wing, there is a black plastic cover with three screws in it, two on the top and one at the side, take this off and you will see a black loom, take the cloth/plastic insulation off and I think it is a white wire that feeds the reverse light, just check it with a multimeter, be sure to tuck the new wires in so they don’t foul the boot when it is opening.

Peugeot 407

Good day, I have been prowling the net like a stalker on peugeot forums. i steal moments every chance i get! insane or desperate? enough about my antics... i have a problem that i do hope that 1 of the peugeot enthusiasts could help me with. i have a peugeot 407 2 turbo hdi for some reason the water in my coolant system mixes with oil. Can anyone tell me what could be the cause and how do i possibly rectify this particular dilemma. Then also my cooling fan dont seem to go on at all. or is it best to call it a radiator fan. As a result im too scared to drive my car as i dont want to overheat engine and possibly cause a bigger catastrophic problem. Please guys, i really need you help with regards to this

Answers

Hi; Your fan sensor is probably the cause for the fan not working. Because the fan is not working your engine has probably over heated; the engine gets distorted and your head gasket doesn't do its job anymore leading to water and oil mixing. You'll need to take your car to the garage; if you are a lucky and the head is not damaged a simple head gasket change will do; if the head is damaged it will need work that is done by specialists. First have the fan sorted; but beware none of this is cheap... Louis from Cheshire
