Default 207cc 110hdi gt "needs a new engine"

hi peeps!

new member here looking for advice/ shared experiences

i bought an 08 plate CC diesel in october 2011 at 66000 from a main dealer as approved used with a platinum warranty

it was small serviced at my local garage in Feb, and all was fine until april, when i got an oil pressure warning light and took it to another branch of the same dealer to get it checked.... i paid a total of 424 for diagnostics, oil pump and servicing (it was also recommended that i have the cam belt done, so i did)

all was fine again until September, when the engine lost power and went into limp mode with a depolution system failure, so it was back to the same garage to be told the turbo had gone.... queue another 600plus for a turbo, pipes, service and dpf sensor (still under warranty)

now fine again until 22nd December.... loss of power, limp mode, depolution system fault.... back to the dealer (on jan 7th due to problems arranging a tow over xmas)... 200 bill for diagnostics (which i will pay "under protest" to get the car back).... told turbo gone AGAIN (within 2000mls!!!!), that "the turbo shaft that comes out of the engine is not spinning centrally".....and it needs a new engine (4500)

logged a call with Peugeot "customer care" who were useless and took 2 weeks to tell me they weren't prepared to help with the cost as the car had no service history between 1900 and 59000 miles

currently arranging a tow to my local independent garage for an inspection, before contacting trading standards and the original dealer branch.....

Muliple turbo failure is nearly always down to a. Incorrect oil and servicing regime or b. On fitting a new turbo the fitting procedure not adhered to. I've seen this so many times its not funny. Not warranty whatsoever can be claimed on the turbo if the fitting procedure is not adhered to.

As above you have NO service history. So why should Peugeot pay?

i bought the car as approved used from a main dealer. surely the dealer shouldnt have sold it with that history if it was destined to fail?
i wasnt expecting peugeot to pay- i was expecting them to force the dealer to do more about it.
surely they should have looked into why the oil pump and the first turbo failed?

The answer there is in the service history or lack of. A proper oil change regime with the correct spec oil (total quart INEO 5w30) is the ONLY way to ensure this engines longevity.

Its the fault of whoever owned the car and skipped the services !!

I do see what your saying the dealer sold it to you as approved used you most likely believed this meant it had been serviced properly since they approved it but sadly not really the case

Is there really no record of any services for over 50k miles ?

At a guess it sounds like the oil pressure is shagged on the current engine? Thats usually the main thing that kills turbos along with poor servicing

All the oil galleries get blocked up causing this. I'd like to see the state of the oilfilter. Ill bet its a lump of jelly oil.
