it's probably the dpf filter (search here and you'll find a few hundred threads about it!)
It's basically a filter built into the exhaust system to burn off the soot rather than spraying it out the exhaust into the air.
When the system was being designed, i think the chief designer gave up and let his drunken girlfriend finish off the design as it's probably the worst designed bit of kit ever fitted to a car!

Could be linked to fuel pressures.... could be the fuel filter blocking, or not sure if there is one in the tank too on the 307?

Those damn things are annoying. We were doing them in theory class the other day. Why would you design something that would only burn off the soot at high temperatures? You would have thought they would take into consideration the mum's driving kiddies to school/shoppies who never get up to high speeds so the soot would never get burnt off.

Its a ticking time bomb. In a few years time the market will be flooded with small engined cars with soot and DPF problems.
