The turbo has gone on my Peugeot 207 HDI 1.6. It has only done 33,000 miles. It is 4 years old, therefore out of warranty. Peugeot want £2000 - has anyone alse had this problem and what did you do?

Answers

The biggest problem with diesel engins with turbochargers is a lot of owners fail to let the engine idle for a minute or two to cool the turbocharger bearings down after a run especially at motorway speeds. This cools the bearings down and prolongs the life of the turbocharger. It’s a common fault, not only with Peugeot but all diesel turbo engines. In my opinion I would look for a turbo specalist to possibly re-build your unit as I feel 2000 pounds is an awful lot of money for a new unit. Good luck Rod McClelland from Scotland

Hi. same here. Mine has just gone, 40k on clock, 56 plate (late register), want £3000 pounds to repair and only ever serviced by Arbury Peugeot - 1800 miles since last service. Full Peugeot service history and no warning signs or leaks at all. Where does the liability rest? Also, a friend’s has leaking turbo failure, they have 38k on clock. Is this an engine fault? It seems odd that all have similar mileage and similar year... Anonymous from

I have to add something before you drive your car let it run for couple of minutes, then and first of all when change your oil use 5w-30w synthetic because this kind of viscosity is the best for the turbo, and don’t forget to change every 5,000 miles the oil and 10,000 the oil filter, this will extend engine life over 400k. You can purchase a turbo on the ebay, the price is under £500 then buy a Haynes service and manual, they will tell you how to install the turbo Choukri Kayal from France

My daughter’s car has had a new engine after having 5 turbos fitted by dealer in Crewe, all warranty fortunately. Advice maintain approved servicing after turbo replacement and try and avoid excessive town driving this can block filter in exhaust, a motorway journey once a week should clear system. Also some independant garages should do work cheaper Robert Blease from Cheshire

Very often in 1.6 HDI engines carbon is building up and blocking oil pipes. We always advice our customers to change oil and oil filter in cars with this engine more often than in other cars. You can get reconditioned turbocharger and get it fitted by your local garage. Just make sure that garage will also change all inlet and outlet pipes. I could help you with choosing the right turbo for your car and if you decide to fit it yourself I can provide you with instruction. Give us a call and we'll sort something out 01733572164.

Peugeot 308

done an oil change at 41.000 miles. now I have done 800 miles so why is there a spanner symbol showing on dashboard when ignition on then vanish when I star the engine ?

Answers

The spanner symbol on the dash inicates that a servicing interval is being reached. If you have changed the oil etc as part of a diy servicing, you'll have to reset the interval yourself. To perform the reset: 1. With the key in the ignition but the ignition off press and hold the spanner/odometer button underneath the main instrument cluster (speedo, Rev counter) 2. With the spanner button still pressed turn the ignition on (first click) 3. You should see a countdown timer (on the digital distance display) begin at 10 4. Wait until the count down finishes, then turn the ignition off. This resets the interval. Hope this helps Geraint Williams from Cardiff

I had something similar with water under the sills which eventually became a sloshing sound from the doors. Service manager knew straightaway what the problem was.

On arriving home opened bonnet, no visible steam or other leaks. Checked for oil patches on floor several hours later - nothing. Why is my car making this noise and why does it cut out?????

Peugeot 206 SW 2004

When indicating left and when I press my brake my Peugeot 206 SW`s indicator starts to flash faster, when I take my foot of the brake it flashes normally. Any ideas?

Answers

Sounds like a problem with the connections to one or more of the lamps on that side of the car, although check all your lights. I’d try the rears first, remove them from the car and when you unplug them have a look in the plugs and the sockets for corrosion (bluey green or rust discoloration) clean out what you find with a contact cleaning spray from Halfords or similar and work the plugs in and out a few times. Also, check you have the correct bulbs in place and that the contacts to those aren’t corroded either (same thing, cleaner spray and work them in the sockets). The problem is called cross-feed and happens when resistance builds up in the connections between components, the power looks for the easiest pathway to earth and high resistance where it is supposed to go can make bulbs work when they’re not supposed to. At worst it causes a Christmas tree effect where the lights work randomly (usually when the brake lights come on) anything French seems particularly susceptible to this although I have know other makes to do it just usually much older cars. Hope this helps! Chris from Leicestershire

Peugeot 207

Hi my car recently died due to a faulty earth wire and now it's fixed I have no radio (code needed) I've heard the code is on the side of my radio if I pull it out is this true? And I it is how do I put the code in as the screen where the clock temp and radio is, Is just flashing and won't let me enter anything thank you for your help Damo

Answers

The radio does not have a code. The BSI unit is programmed to the specific radio. This unit controls multiple functions such as the clock etc. There is a long drawn out procedure whereby the BSI unit resets itself if it has been corrupted by disconnecting the battery. The BSI unit is basically a computer which handles a multitude of functions such as odometer value, central locking, radio, lights and immobiliser. Some later Bsi units are liable to corrupt their own software program if not “woken up” in a specific way after programming keys or battery disconnection. The details of this are explored thoroughly in a Peugeot TSB but I will summarise for you briefly. 1. Disconnect the diagnostic tool. 2. Put the driver’s window down, lift the bonnet and ensure all equipment is switched off. 3. Ensure all doors are closed and remove key from the ignition. 4. Wait for 3 minutes, disconnect the vehicle battery and wait 15 seconds. 5. Reconnect the vehicle battery, wait a further 10 seconds (do not open doors.) 6. Switch on the side lights through the driver's window. 7. Switch on the ignition and check system’s functionality. 8. Hold lock button on key down for 10 seconds. 9.remove key open & close door test central locking system 10. Start the engine and complete the system’s check. Failure to follow this procedure could result in incorrect operation of many BSI related items. It did take three attempts following this procedure before it worked. I take no responsibility for what damage may be incurred. John from Essex

If you don't use it regularly then it is probably a fairly normal thing.. keep an eye on your water/coolant levels and if they go down then revisit the possibility of problem..

Is there a type of plate maybe a heat plate under the car which can come loose? Can it be removed safely or is it essential?

Answers

Margaret, if it silvered looking thing then it will be head deflector or shroud protecting the bodywork, fuel pipes and perhaps other components from the heat produced in your exhaust pipes. They do suffer from deterioration.. they are usually aluminium and rot with road salt... and when they get loose, they rattle like mad sometimes. Some will say it is not essential and can be removed because as you drive there's enough draught to prevent overheating.. but.. if you get stuck in traffic jams, what happens then? I'd get it fixed and refitted.. it's a part that can be fettled and a bracket added to fix it.. cheaper than buying new one. R Evans from Caerphilly

I've got exactly the same problem. Please check rear lamp connector. The problem is there. The whole lamp is loosing earthing and lots of errors occurs. I've cleaned connector and socket and voila problem solved! quanto from City of Edinburgh

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

Well thank you John from Surrey. Spot on with solution and clear directions to achieve it. Recommend give this a go. Maggie Maggie from Somerset

These 'bulb faulty' warning lights nearly always relate to the rear lights. Most common fault I found was damp / condensation within the power connectors that plug into the back of the light cluster. It doesn't have to be much to cause the warning lights to activate. Pull out the connectors and spray a little WD40 into them, same with the light cluster socket. Should help. Always try the cheapest and simplest things first. Egryn from Gwynedd

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.

Answers

power prob is most prob the mass air sensor.replace it,you will see a massive improvement. barry from Greater Manchester

Van2010 on a 60 plate 2.0ltr hid drives superb and no smoke when warm but when starting from cold on a morning clouds of white smoke for 3 mins and weird smell

Answers

Hi Paul. I have exactly the same problem. I've had a new turbo all injectors taken out and checked. I've been told it could be worn piston rings or valve stem seals. Mine also burns around a lt of oil every 800 miles or so. Does it run lumpy for the first min or so?? Danny from Kent

i have a 57 reg 1.6. valve stem seals clearly failing, cold starts in a morning produce 30 seconds of light blue smoke (oil) and then lumpy tick over for about 2-3 minutes, then runs sweetly.... David from Cheshire

Driving along and my van seems to want to stall. After a few revs it's ok! Drive off again and the problem reoccurs. When I'm stopped it runs ok then wants to stall again! Noticed white smoke on a few occasions from the exhaust. Please help

Answers

White smoke is probably unburnt diesel, I am no mechanic but could be an injector failing and dropping too much fuel into one cylinder. Take it to a specialist diesel engine centre - not a Peugeot dealer and get them to diagnose it. Likelihood is that if it is an injector it will fail dramatically soon and leave you stranded.
