Default Anti Pollution Fault

Good Evening,

I have a Peugeot 307s 05plate Petrol.

Got in my car earlier started the engine and it displayed "Anti Pollution Fault". The car still drives perfectly with no loss of power nor other random electronic faults.

I have been googling this issue but it only comes back with issues for a diesel 307 (frankly I'm quite glad I dont have a diesel, it looks expensive).

Does anyone have any ideas or solutions for the fault?

You need to get a Diagnostic done

Sounds like a plan.

Any ideas what it might be related to. Air Filter? Exhaust? Flooring it when the engine is still cold?

I wouldn't floor my 307 when the engine is cold!
Wait atleast 70 or 80..
Could get problem with the engine relating to pistons.

Anti Pollution Fault is the Generic name for a fault, you need a diagnostics done to tell you which fault.

I think some idiot at peugeot, who was given the job to think of fault names got bored. He was left with a list of things to write names for and thought, 'I wanna be in the pub, I don't wanna be here... I know, I'll call all these faults Anti Pollution Fault! Then we can make more money cause then they can bring their cars in for diagnosis. CRACKER!'.

Just to be productive, we have a Xsi that drives round perfectly fine, no problems and has anti pollution fault on.

I also had the same on my 307 petrol,it turned out to be a dodgy o2 sensor,but drove around fine,i found that supermarket fuel made it happen more,so over the months i tried just shell and other branded fuel and the problem almost went away completely.swapped out the second o2 sensor and problem cured,but like Betty says you need to get it read by someone with planet.

Hi. I only recently joined the forum recently, and its been very useful, some really knowledgable people on here, who have stopped me ripping my hair out!!! i have suffered the "antipollution system fault" sporadically for about a year now, but only since we had the extreme cold winter. Coincidence? You decide. I knew of a Peugeot tech in Stourbridge, west mids, at the Pug Shop, called him yesterday, and he did a diagnostic with Planet. It turned out that it showed "glow plugs open circuit", and "fuel pressure below reference value" Fault codes then cleared all for a charge of 25.
Simple fix, replace glow plugs and fuel filter! Cost? 170 all in!!! Paul said the FAP was ok, and at least 12,000 miles of Eolys left. I didnt realise the 1.6 HDi glow plugs assisted in the regen process. Could the cold weather we had (-14 in Kiddeminster several days) wreck the glow plugs? Im a happy bunny now, avoid dealers if you can, as an independant, or advice on here will save s. Ian
