Hi I have a few problems with my Peugeot expert 1.6 HDI 2007 140000miles, I never expected a1.6 diesel van to be fast but mine seems painfully slow. Symptoms are as follows. Very poor acceleration especially on hills, only 40 mph possible on pretty minor inclines Accelerator pedal seems to make no difference to revs after about a third of the way down. Whining sound from engine (been told this is normal turbo sound for these vehicles) Rumbling sound from front offside wheel when turning. Worse when turning at sow speeds. Any help with theses problems would be greatly appreciated.

Answer this question

Karen, South Lanarkshire

Peugeot 107

The exhaust has fell down on the right hand side of my car , I think it only requires a clip can anyone help me get the correct clip I need. The exhaust looks and sounds ok, just needing clipped back on Karen

Answers

Karen, it's likely that your exhaust mounting rubber has perished and snapped. If one has gone the other may not be far behind so change both just to make sure.. don't worry, you'll not need to rob a bank to replace them they're less than tenner on 'popular auction site'.. for two.. just type in "peugeot 107 exhaust mounting rubber".. yours will be round in shape with two distinct holes.. one hole for exhaust one goes on car mounting point.. use washing liquid neat on the rubber to help slide old off and new on.. rain will wash it off. You will have one rubber mounting each end of the rear box.. in other words one towards passenger side and one to drivers side. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi, thanks for that ! I've just had a look under the car it looks like a metal bracket has snapped, it feeds through the rubber mounting! There is a piece of metal through one side but rusted at the other end ! I think I'll need the metal part . Thanks again Karen Karen from South Lanarkshire

Karen, in that case it depends which metal bracket has broken off.. the one on the exhaust box itself or the one on the car.. more likely to be the exhaust one than the car one.. if it's the car one, you'll need a bit of welding to get it back on and you could do the same with the exhaust one, but to be honest, if it's corroded that bad that it's broken off, you'd be better off getting new back box.

Can anyone help please? At first I thought it was the Tappets that needed Oil as it sounded like them, but the Oil level is fine! All of a sudden my vehicle started making a scraping noise from the Engine, like two sheets of metal clanging together. The Display stated "Recharge Battery - Electrical Fault". Does this mean the Alternator needs replacing as It wouldn't be the Battery surely as the Alternator charges the Battery. Please advise. I know about cars so no silly answers please. Thanking you.

Connect a volt meter across the terminals of the battery, With engine running the voltage should read approx. 14.2 volts. if anything below 12 volts a good indication that the alternator is not charging. John from Essex

no real issue Borislav, but change the oil for correct amount of correct grade and see if it returns to 84.. it may just be an indication that the oil is due a change.. but it's not a significant rise in temperature anyway. R Evans from Caerphilly

Answers

A lady from Warwickshire asked this question in March. Water leaks along the to Loom & ECU. Very common fault with the 207. Water seeps along the wiring loom by capillary action to the ECU and does no end of damage. It appears that somehow a plug gathering water (what looks like engine coolant) is causing corrosion on the loom and connectors , lying water is then causing a short in ECU & sensors around the car so replacing parts wont fix it . Another problem the windscreen washer jets housing have no seals fitted under them and the water drips thro the bonnet onto the relays. My advice, Find it, fix it, sell it, buy something not French that works... Peugeot have been aware of this since 2006 and afraid the only cure is a new wiring harness and possibly a new ECU which costs megabucks plus labour. John from Essex

Hello, my van (2.2 HDI) spends 80% of the time in limp mode. If I drive on the motorway, on the flat or up a hill it's stuck at 2200-2300 rpm. When I get to the crest of a hill it then drives normally for about 30 seconds to a minute and then goes back into limp mode no matter if i'm going up a hill, down a hill or on the flat. if i'm still going down the same hill it may drive normally for another 30 seconds. It then does the same on the next hill/slope. It does seem to be better around town (coming on and of limp mode 50/50 on the flat) but still does the same thing on the hills. Have you any ideas I could try before I spend a fortune getting it diagnosed. Thank you in advance. If you need additional information please ask.

The fuel runs back at night? could it be the fuel pump weakening? is it manual or electric and can I get through the passenger side floor to get to it?

Answers

Not sure what's causing the problem but your fuel pump is in the tank.. the access point is between the two seats..remove the floor panel then remove the metal panel's and the top of the tank and connections are visible.. the fuel pump is incorporated into the fuel level sender unit and changed as one. R Evans from Caerphilly

Sounds like an air leak into the system If you've had the fuel filter changed recently make sure the pipes are tight, on the 2.2 make sure the top is fully tightened......there may be no sign of a fuel leak, but it can draw air in overnight John H from Cornwall

hi, how to cure the faulty warning light problem its the earth on the rear light connector, 2 choices, firstly open the boot you will find a plastic wing nut looking screw adjacent to the light panel, unscrew this this will enable you to remove the rear light unit , you will see a panel with all the bulb connectors pull back the locating tags which will release the cover exposing the connector, simply pull out the connector you will see the pin 2nd in will be blackish maybe even burnt you maybe able to scrap and clean this up also bend the pin slightly before reassembling, this might cure it if not, choice 2 on the p c bulb board there is a 6mm diameter hole you will need a 6mm nut and bolt plus wire and crimping connectors bypass the connector and bolt the earth wire directly onto the board , choice 1or 2 will cure the fault, p.s. try the right rear side light first hope this helps JOHN Beere from Surrey

My daughter had a similar problem on her 207SW. So start investigation from the previous tips. The connector was fine no signs of corrosion etc. After conducting a few tests, with extra earth wires etc. It transpired it was simply loose bulb connections, giving an intermittent signal setting off the annoying warning system. Remove all the bulbs and tweek up all the positive contacts at the base of the holders - this ensures there is increased tension to hold the bulb firmly against its earthing pin location. Half hour and no cost to fix.....been OK for the last week. RIchard Wilson from Hampshire

Engine is 2011 2000HD on Motorhome. It has done 20000 miles. I had to drive 80 miles today and the orange engine icon came on when we left but apart from that ran normally. It happened a couple of years ago and contacted the Motorhome supplier and was told that sometimes after a vehicle has been stood some exhaust filter or something like that can cause it to come on. That time it went away a day or two later. The van has until last week been stood for 4 months. I need to get home today and a nearby Peugeot dealer hasn't a chance to look at it. Any ideas please BW.

Answers

When the EML comes on there's a host of things that could be causing it.. one of which is a sticking egr valve.. try some fuel system cleaner and run it .. when it's hot, keep the engine revs over 2500rpm and you can do this driving home.. another thing that could cause it is a DPF clogging.. that is the "exhaust filter or something" that the dealer is probs on about.. it may need a regen.. and all they do is run the engine hot at about 3000rpm for 20mins.. ooh.. sounds sooo similar to the egr procedure.. yes it is.. you can do both at the same time.. fuel additive, drive home.. when engine at normal temp, drop a gear to increase the engine revs over 2500rpm and keep them there for 15-20mins.. see how it goes..

Answer this question

Ray, England

Peugeot 306 1999

I’ve had my Peugeot 306 1.6 estate for a month or so and it came with a light grinding sound to the off side front. It sounds similar to when the brake pads are getting low, but it’s quieter. It’s a constant sound and when I depress the clutch it disappears. I don’t want to lead an answer but I’m wondering of it’s a drive shaft thing and if it’s an easy / cheap fix?

Answers

Hie Ray First loosen the off side wheel. jack that side, make sure the car is jacked and supported for it to be in a safe working environment (safety first). So, with the other side still on ground, the off side up, start the car and engage in the first gear, leave in to run whilst you are cheeking on where exactly the sound is coming from. if the sound persists, unscrew the wheel nuts, remove the wheel, run it again while checking for the sound. if it persists, check the brake pads, and if it persists then its the wheel bearing. in short, to identify the problem, work out by elimination, first, working with the possible problems/faults, that's the best way to get to the root. it may sound to be a long way, but i bet you, you will be an expert in diagnosing similar problems, even on any other car.

I have a Peugeot 306 and a problem with the temperature gauge which is always high (about 100) when in heavy traffic, but comes low when speeding. Please what is the problem?

Answers

Hi there, if using water change to coolant, then ensure that the cooling system is perfect, no leakages. If not working overhaul your car cooling system. Wilson Nzau from Kenya

hie you can also check if your radiator cap is still intact or in a good working order. for as log as the pressure built in the cooling system finds its way out, the temperature will always rise. i had a similar problem once, and as soon as i changed to a new radiator cap there were no more high temperatures.

I have split the plastic engine guard and it is hitting speed bumps when traveling over them. Mechanic says may as well take it off and fitting a new one is an unnecessary hassle. Any advice? (inc. costs) thanks

Answers

Stacey, if it the main plastic underguard that covers virtually all the underneath of the engine then it can be left out.. it is primarily there for two reasons.. protect the underneath of engine from water spray and for aerodynamics. Have it removed and it may be possible to patch up with a series of holes and cable ties depending on how bad it's split and where. R Evans from Caerphilly

I am looking to fit a set of He- Man dual controls to my 2010 5 door hatchback Peugeot 207 diesel verve. I need to remove the glove department in order to get in to where the mounting location is. Can you explain to me how to remove the glove department. I am having difficulty with it and do not want to force anything. Regards and thank you.

Answers

Just four screws hold the glove compartment box in. Two at the top and two underneath the lower trim panel (hidden from view) takes around three minutes to do. You will have to unplug the light unit to remove box completely. John from Essex

Sorry got the wrong car. Apologies. Undo the retaining screws from the lower edge of the glove box. Release the plastic securing clips and remove the trim beneath the facia. Open the glove box and unclip the cover from the left-hand side of the compartment. Undo the screws securing the inside of the glove box to the facia. Undo the upper retaining screws. Release the wiring block connectors and the diagnostic plug from the glove box housing. Withdraw the glove box from the facia panel. John from Essex

Peugeot 208

My car goes into economy mode after the ignition is switched on but engine not started while I doodle around fettling things. Is it possible to upgrade to a higher capacity battery while keeping the same dimensions. Will the upgrade affect the elletronic side of things and conflict with the warranty. The car is a Peugeot 208 and has done 9000 miles.

Answers

The car must have been standing for long period of time on the forcout of the dealer. A run down the motorway and the problem has cleared. The battery must have lost its charge. Hope this helps other people T Taylor from Midlothian

Hi. I`m just wondering if anybody can help me with this issue? When I start up my Peugeot 307 and drive for 1- 2 minutes my car will beep three times, the display will say automatic gear fault and then my gear indicated says I am in ’-’ mode. If I stop and restart the car the problem seems to go away. If I warm up my car for a good 5-7 minutes and drive off very slowly until the car warms up this issue doesn’t occur. It generally occurs when the engine is cold. Can anybody please help?
