Default Peugeot 207 2012 not fixable by garage

My sons car has been in a garage for about 8 weeks after a fault where the engine would either not start or would cut out and die.

Initial diagnosis was a sensor/indicator which cost 185 to fix. The car subsequently died the next day.
The next fix was the whole exhaust system as the garage said it was fully blocked, that cost 800. Again the car died soon after whilst the garage took it for test driver.

That was about 5 weeks ago, since then they have looked and also sent the car to a "specialist" but have now come back and said the car cannot be fixed.
My son is now nearly 1000 out of pocket plus the garage say they are looking for about another 200 for the work they have done on the car even though it is still not fixed.

We realise they have spent time working on the car but also they have carried out 2 supposed fixes which ultimately did not rectify the problem.

Is this an issue on this make of car?

You don't mention what engine it is.

At any point did it get scanned with PROPER diagnostic equipment or did everyone just guess what the problem was?
I'm assuming guessing took place hence the 1000 outlay and a car that still FTP.

I would say your issue is with the garage not the car there is no such thing as a car that cannot be fixed !!

Cars that are not WORTH fixing yes but any car can be fixed !

I assume they checked the simple things like a kinked or blocked fuel breather causing vacuum in tank. Try loosening or removing the fuel cap

Carl, it sounds like your garage is out of their depth but don't want to admit that you've spent a grand with a bunch of cowboys that don't know what they're doing.

I've spent long enough on this planet to know what cars are fixable and what cars are not. I reckon they all are - even the rusting heaps of classic British Leyland engineering of my youth!

Indeed, these cars are complicated but nothing to be scared of. They have an onboard computer that can be spoken to by another computer and it will tell you a lot about what its problem is.

So unless the car is currently wrapped around a tree I'd say it's fixable but perhaps only by the person capable of fixing it...

next you need the codes read properly, check the map for a member.

A quick search shows other owners have had the same problem due to a faulty coolant temprature sensor (wonder what would happen if you unplugged it?)

but could be anything.

Always check the fusebox and ecu plugs for any sign of green corrosion on the pins.
