Hi all. I have recently bought a Peugeot Expert 53 plate 1.9 diesel Van. When I bought it the starter motor was playing up so we changed that and she starts up first time every time lovely, doesn't smoke at all, ticks over fine. However, as I drive down the road and go to change from first gear to second she stalls on me (then starts up straight away), but if I rev her whilst changing gear it won`t stall and I can then go to third and fourth no problem and she drives fine up to fifth. Then approaching a roundabout/junction going down the gears with my foot on he brake she will stall again. So it seems like when I am at slower speeds and changing from first to second with my foot on the clutch (and brake when slowing down) she will stall? I have checked fuel filters and air filters and seems all fine and clean. Any other suggestions please? Thanks Russell, Oxfordshire.

Clean the butterfly in the throttle body, remove air filter ducting pipe and you will see the butterfly , don't use carb cleaner, use throttle body cleaner or WD40 and clean it with a toothbrush, especially the edges of flap and throat. On tick over a very minimal amount of air needs to get though, generally dirt build up seals that gap. so when you lift off on throttle it stalls . Hope this helps. allan edgerton from Wiltshire

Peugeot 308

Hi I have a 308 63 plate, I'm just wondering whether the push button on the left stalk does anything, I've looked through the manual and I can't find anything, I just really want to know. Thanks in advance

Answers

Hi, that button on the right hand side stalk is to reset and change the trip meter/mpg, the small square screen in between the dials at the bottom, if you press it a few times it changes the screen. If you hold the button in it resets the mpg, if you want to turn the screen off (distraction at times) on the left hand stalk there`s a small roller button, put this in the middle to turn it off. Peugeot 308 owner James lee Gwilt from Staffordshire

Hi, for me that is the right stalk not the left, the left push button on mine doesn't seem to do anything Nick from Durham

Hi, yes I see, have checked my own and there is a button there but it doesn`t do anything and is not connected to any electrical device? James lee Gwilt from Staffordshire

Peugeot 308

Hi, I`ve just got my brand new Peugeot 308 4 days ago. One thing with this car really annoys me and I actually don't know if it is a common thing or just on my 308. Everytime I start the car in the morning (or other times when it hasn't been used for a couple of hours) and it reaches 3rd gear I feel a big "click" in the gas pedal. It's only in 3rd and only this one time. If I shift to 4th gear and back into 3rd there is nothing. What could it be? In general I can feel everything in the gas pedal, the engine and it feels like there are small "clicks" all of the time. Any others who experience this?

Answers

I think that I am experiencing the same behavior as you. I feel the click during acceleration only once in second gear when the engine is cold. Did you find out what it was? Tom from Slovenia

Hi, the engine click you mention is actually the vti system thats normal (petrol version), as for 3rd gear clicking maybe cause it`s new and not worn in properly. James lee Gwilt from Staffordshire

It actually happens every time when I reach the speed of 40km/h for the first time after starting the engine. It does not matter if it is in 2nd or 3rd gear, or if the engine is cold. I am pleased to hear that this is normal for petrol engines. Let us hope it fades away with the time when it is worn in properly :) Tom from Slovenia

Why is my anti pollution sign coming on.What should I do ?

Answers

Hi Fran, I had the anti pollution faulty message appear a few months back on my 57 plate 207 and when the engine was on in neutral it sounded like the car was about to backfire. Turns out my catalytic converter was internally broken, I had issues with my oxygen sensors etc. I had to have new everything fitted in relation to the anti pollution system, costing approximately a grand! Peugeot garages will charge you about £70 just for a diagnosis before even doing anything to resolve the issue, but most other independent garages will do diagnosis for free and then leave it in your hands as to whether you want them to carry out the work needed or if you wish to take it elsewhere you can. Hope this helps - best of luck! Ps. Get it checked ASAP if you haven't already as it can cause damage to the engine! Nikki from Middlesex

I have recently acquired a 3008 and fuel left in tank and MPG display constantly keep changing (ie fuel left in tank display read 385 miles, I drove 10 miles home and it was showing that the fuel in tank was displaying 335 miles so a 10 mile journey became a 50 mile journey and the MPG goes from 0 to 999 and is always changing). Can you advise me?

Answers

From what I understand the 385 miles left in the tank is an estimate based on your current driving. The reason why it may have dropped so dramatically is because your current driving mpg was lower than the average mpg. As for the mpg changing from 0 to 999 is because it is your current driving mpg so you can drive more efficiently. So if you put your foot down it will drop below 20 but if you take your foot off and let the vehicle roll, down a hill for example, it will increase to 999. In effect you could continuously travel down a hill not using the accelerator so your mpg is 999. Andy from Greater Manchester

I have a Peugeot 3008 and the eco lights flash when standing at traffic lights but it does not turn the eco on. Why is this please?

Answers

I only got my 2013 - 3008 e-hdi last week. Reading through the manual the ECO light will flash to let you know the engine will carry on running, according to the manual this could be for a number of reasons. I have found once the car has been for a run and the engine has warmed up the function automatically reinstates itself, thinking about it it makes sense, when you first use your car the load must be high with with all the electrics on etc. Ade from Portsmouth

Peugeot 206 CC 2003

Is it normal for the radio of my Peugeot 206 CC to remain on for approx 1 minute after removing the key from the ignition and also come on when the door is opened?

Answers

I have the same problem with my 206 cc. When I had the factory fitted radio in my car it turned off when the ignition was turned off and the key taken out. Since fitting a new radio it too like yours stays on for about a minute after taking the key out the ignition and then comes on again when the doors are opened. Be good to know if it’s a fault or not Kelly from Nottinghamshire

I had my radio replaced and the guy who has done it told me he had to run a wire from a cigarette lighter to power the radio because the original radio gets its power from a computer. Maybe your power is connected to interior light; that would explain why it stays on for a minute and turns on when the door opens. Try to rewire the unit with power coming from the lighter and it will work only when the ignition is on or on acc position Julius B from Australia

I’ve got exactly the same problem with my 407 using the RD4 radio. Glad I’m not the only one, but I’d prefer an answer to to this conundrum Angus Kitchin from Gloucestershire

Hi all. My rear parking sensors when in reverse say I'm close to an object but there`s nothing in sight. I have cleaned them with a dry cloth, but they still constantly bleep. I now have to turn them off. Is it a faulty sensor, if so how do I find out which one of four? Many thanks.

I have this problem with mine. The sensors beep continuously to indicate I am directly in front of something. When I get out and look there is a clear 3 foot gap. I assume this is purposely done to allow room for error. What I tend to do is wait for the beep and then continue for another second. This is done at a risk of course. Andy from Greater Manchester
