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

Hi my peoguet expert tepee hdi 1.6 2008 heater working on full i cannot slow it down but works on number 4 position any help plz.

Answers

This is caused by the blower speed control module.. or resistor.. some people call it e rheostat.. but it is pretty easy and cheap fix.. getting to it may be a bit of a potch because it is fitted to the heater blower housing.. you can get replacement on popular auction site but be aware that there may be variants for your vehicle.. changing old for new is disconnect power, undo a screw and remove the old resistor, replace with new and do everything back up... but you'll probs have to remove half the lower dash and glovebox to get to the heater blower. Not cost effective to get a used unit because you'll never know how much life is left in it. However, may also be worth checking the wiring connections to the module.. sometimes the connection is dirty and that can be all it takes. re from Caerphilly

Answer this question

Ruth, Cornwall

Peugeot Expert

I have water pouring into my passenger footwell after it rains, it isn't blocked drainage channels under the windscreen. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm wondering if it's the windscreen seal. It only happens when it's rained and the van isn't losing water at all so it's coming in from somewhere. If it is the windscreen seal any idea how much it would be to have it replaced or can I seal it myself? Thank you.

Answers

Ruth, try removing the glovebox and soundproofing to identify from underneath the dashboard where it is coming in.. you may find that there is a grommet feeding cabling or wiring into the cab, from the engine compartment. There is also a weatherstrip that seals the engine bay from inside cab at the point where the heater hoses enter the cab.. if that seal fails, you'll have water coming in. Removing the plastic dashboard trims may just allow you to see water marks where it's coming in. If it's the windscreen seal, then it will almost certainly be bonded.. not likely to leak unless incorrectly installed.. but that is not impossible.. happened on wifey's Clio after the rear screen shattered and was replaced.

Hi. Please can somebody put me in the picture when it comes to the odometer on my Peugeot Expert. For several weeks now the display has been slowly fading on the small display that tells me how many miles Ive done etc. I have of course gone through the usual checks, bulb, fuse etc. I have even been to the scrap yard and bought a completely new dash. Every thing else works fine. Clock,Speedo,Fuel Gage. Even with the good secondhand one it is still the same. No display. or very little. Ive got half numbers and then some numbers. It is really strange. Please can somebody help. I have an MOT due and I will need a good reading of my mileage for the MOT. Many thanks Andy

No questions just yet working on the heater blower resistor or relay problem, then I will return with some useful information, just replaced the heater matrix due to a saturating leak on the floor of the van, whilst I was doing the job I must have disturbed something electrical, oh how I wish I had a modicum of common sense.

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.

The hands-free kit audio has stopped working. It pairs with my phone and displays my phone book, it also dials out and receives calls but that's it. The call has connected to the other person but you cannot hear them through the radio and it also prevents you from hearing them on the phone itself. To use the mobile phone in the van I now have to disable its pairing first. It used to work fine and I have made no changes that could isolate the audio.

I am having a problem with my front brakes they keep holding on we have fitted a new master cylinder and checked the hose & calipers can anybody help please

Answers

Hi i had the same problem on my 1999 van don't know what year your van is but had the same problem with the front brakes holding on and it seemed the longer i was driving the worst it got. I checked all the brake mechanism across the bulkhead for clearances so that i knew this wasn't holding the brakes on.I then checked all pipes and calipers for any damage seizure and all was ok. I then replaced both the front calipers and hoped for the best but still had the same problem with front brakes holding on. At this point i was running out of options so i got to the breakers yard and took the full servo and master cylinder unit from the same van to replace mine. After fitting the unit my Problem was solved and brakes no longer hold on and so i now knew it was a problem inside the brake servo/master cylinder unit and so i needed to investigate to find what was the cause. Immediately after separating the master cylinder away from the servo unit i found the push rod that runs through the center of the servo unit had came loose on its adjustable threads allowing it to eventually rest up against and constantly push the piston on the master cylinder leaving no clearance whatsoever causing brake bind.
