Car problem: Anti Pollution fault

12
Found 27th Dec 2011
2003 Peugeot 307 SW 2.0 HDi SE 110 BHP Estate
---------------------------------

Anyone know whats going on with my car? I bought it from mate in Birmingham last weekend. On the way home it came up with the engine management light and said Antipollution Fault. It wont go past 2500 rpm (max 80mph on the motorway).

It was his wifes car and said she never drove it outside of their local area (used for the school runs, etc.). He is a friend so I trust him - he is willing to refund me, no problem.

Some people say the catalytic convertor needs cleaning, whilst others say its the partical filter. Most seem to think its a cheap/simple job but garages will usually try it on and make unnecessary changes.

I am wondering if it is actually what they say or something more. Also, what am I looking to pay from a local garage?

Cheers - now that you mention, someone did say something about a turbo inlet valve as well. Bloomin cars, my sisters pug is no trouble (okay it is a lot newer).

Off to the garage now anyway, see what they say.

make sure m8 they have the real peugeot planet diagnostics as it will be so specific , a lot have the diagnostic proggys that just give a rough idea a peugeot garage is the best if nt a bit pricey m8

Yeah this is the problem - some say its a valve/inlet that needs reconnecting/changing, whilst others say its a simple case of cleaning the cat convertor or replacing it. Problem is finding someone local who is a peugeot specialist.

APF covers a multitude of faults.
Have a look at French Car Forums ( frenchcarforum.co.uk/ ) for anyone in your area with a Lexia or Proxia diagnostic kit, there are people who'll check your car for free (or a beer ).
