Default Loss of power/stuttering 207GT

A wee issue has cropped up.

I had the timing chain replaced in February and it's been running fine since, perhaps a little hesitant occasionally when accelerating at low revs before the turbo kicked in but otherwise fine.

Then a couple of weeks back it started to develop more hesitancy when accelerating hard, stuttering. Generally this was when the engine was cold. Was about to get it booked in to have this checked out when....

....today, overtaking, I suffered hesitancy again and bingo, the depolution fault has popped up and the car went into limp home mode. Thankfully I made it past the tractor OK!

Will get it looked at next week, but can anyone give any pointers as to what the problem could be, fuel pump? coil? I don't want a dealer groping around in the dark trying to fix it and as much as I don't want to take it to the local Pug dealer, given they replaced the timing chain 8 months ago I want them to look at it first in case it's related.

Sounds like fuel pump issue. Would suspect p0172 be fault code or some misfire ones in there too.

Hi Andy, I'll give you a shout if/when it happens again [Pug wanted 87 to hook it up to their diagnostic machine FFS!] but you know what, today the warning light has gone and the car is running fine.

I'm sure that wont be the end of it especially if its the fuel pump, but I'll see how it goes as I'm pretty busy over the next week so it saves a lot of hassle.

No worries am lot cheaper than that lol

Don't let them change the pump as it's nearly double the price of BMW one..... which is exactly the same part !

How do you check the fuelpump? What should the fuelpressure be? I have about the same issue as Milemuncher, chain and all is replaced a couple of years ago.

have to measure a certain part of the pump with a digital vernier depth gauge, part needs to be off the car to do this properly, it needs to be under 27mm to comply other wise needs replaced.

Default P0172/po087

Hi there. I have a Peugeot 207 GTI 07 reg, which gives me exactly the same symptoms but only when engine is cold. It does not happen every time the engine is cold, but it started to happen more frequently. It only lasts for about 5-10 mins, and after that car runs smoothly.
One occasion I got the code P0172 and 3 or 4 times the code P0087. I have erased them and for the last week they have not come back; although the symptoms still happen.
I am a novice, so I was hoping if you have any ideas. Do you think that the fuel pump is playing up and do you think that cleaning the injectors will make a difference?

Many thanks

Yep deffo the fuel pump. Need get it removed and measured and inspected for any cracks. Needs a digital vernier depth gauge to measure it. Longer runs with it like that more issues you can cause.
