Question Just bought and a few problems to sort.

Hello Guys, I'm new on the forum. Thanks for the add.
I just bought a 407 SW 2.0HDi Maroon (55 plates), The car didn't fail on MOT in the last 8 years. BUT, when I get the car and scanned with torque Pro, I found some issues.

1 - a Whistling noise when accelerating
2 - the thermostat for engine/fluid is not measuring anything
3 - mpg is awful (but I believe is related to the thermostat) - around 33mpg
None alerts on the Dash


P0087 - Fuel Filter
P0238 - Turbo Repeat Sensor
P1351 - Glow Plug
P2563 - Turbo Actuator Position Sensor

I went to a garage, and straight away the guy condemned the car. Saying the turbo was dead, and to replace will cost more them 1000 pounds.

So, someone knows or have some idea about these errors? I'll change the fuel filter this weekend. I really don't want to sell the car with these defects, It's not right.

Where is located the thermostat for engine and coolant?
Is normal the hose from the fuel filter been loose? (picture attached)

Yes, the dash doesn't show any temperature.

Hello Guys

Just an update.

The battery died (replaced by a new one)
I changed the Fuel Filter
The Glow Plugs Really need to be changed, it's awful to start during the cold days.
The Turbo is GONE now, white smoke, pressure leaking sound, oil going to the intake.

Anyone know some garage that doesn't want my kidney to remove and refurb the turbo?
2.0HDI, I know it's a pain in the ass to remove this turbo.

Regards
Renato

Are you absolutely certain it's the turbo that's gone? Do you see white smoke when the engine is up to temperature?

When you say you hear a pressure leaking sound.... can you find the source? It could by the turbine scraping the housing if the turbo is faulty BUT it could just be an air leak itself, which would cause all the problems you describe... especially if it was a vacuum hose with a split.
