Smile Nice clean engine

Changed oil and filter yesterday on my 308 1.6 hdi 90. On David Ireland's advice I shopped around after some Total quartz ineo 5/30 C2. Couldn't get any so I used an oil recommended for Citroen/Peugeot also 5/30 low saps and C2 rating. I have always done my own servicing over the fourty years I have been driving. I did something that I have never done before and put a can of Wynns engine flush in and held it at 1500 revs for 15 mins. I let the oil drain out for a good 15 mins. after first unscrewing the filter 2 turns. Poured in new oil and changed filter, 30 miles on I checked the oil level and the oil is still clear on the dipstick, that's a first as it is usually black after a couple of minutes of running the engine. The last full tank of fuel I used (60 ltrs.) again I did something different and added 30mill. of low ash 2 stroke. The car does run smoother and when I toe it no smoke comes out the back like it did before. With it being a 90 engine it doesn't have a particle filter so low saps oil is nothing special but it runs better so I shall use the same in 6,000 miles, and am going to carry on with the 2 stroke oil mixed in with fuel. Still a slight rattle when cold but is due a cambelt change and the rattle seems to be from belt tensioner area or higher. Is there any way the cam shaft sprocket could be noisy? Is there some sort of damper on it or does it just fit directly to the cam shaft metal to metal?

Top end rattle can be chain rubbing off the cylinder head cover. Can also be dust on the timing belt causing squeaks. Belt not due till 120-150k. Have you that much on it?

Default Nice clean engine

Hi David,car is a 59 plate with 77,000 on clock with full service history. I see that Peugeot recommends a belt change at 150,000 but reading my Haynes manual it says 80,000. I respect your advice as you do talk sense but how can I check out problem without taking belt off? Can I remove top half of cover and still run engine? If it is the chain can it be adjusted?

I think David is talking kilometres and Haynes is talking miles

Removing the cylinder head cover is an awful job. The cams are attached to the cyl head cover also.

Default Cam belt

Last car was a Picasso with same engine as my Peugeot. Had belt changed at 120,000 and the garage said it was about the right time even though the belt was still in reasonable condition. I would like to run this engine to 100,000 plus before changing belt, but I am a bit concered about rattle. Might just book it in and have all pulleys checked along with belt change, and if needed new chain as well. Can't afford to have it break down on me.

We've always did the belts on 1.6 at around 200,000km. Never had any problems.

Thanks again mate, this irritating rattle does go away after a couple of miles or so. Probably keep running it if it gets no worse and have a good look when belt needs replacing. Wife says I'm trying to pick faults with it, mabe I am but I always try to get any car that I have running as near as perfect as is possible. Need to locate the hardboard insulation cover that fits over the back of air filter on to bulkhead, the original dropped to bits when I removed it to change pollen filter. Having trouble locating one, any ideas anyone. Thanks in advance. P.S. have tried local tat yards but none have any 308's in.
