Default Thanks to PAZ45 in Wigan

An absolute massive thanks to PAZ45 in Wigan for doing a diagnostic on my 307 this afternoon.

Those of you who know me will be wondering why, considering I've been doing diagnostics across the North West for the past three years!

It all begins back last Summer when while watching Autotrader for bargains, an absolute minter of a 307 came up. I wasn't wanting to buy but I just fell for that crazy beige and black interior (incidentally the VW Golf from around 1998 had the same interior).

I did a diagnostic before I bought it. It came up clean but for some reason I couldn't read the Engine ECU, getting "pp2000 unknown reference, ECU being referenced" on Planet. When this happens you can't go into the details to read data or clear codes.

I just put it down to my Lexia gear being a clone and not being able to read this particular car. The sellers go to great lengths to say it doesn't always work on 307s. I tried Diagbox 5 and that was the same.

As the car was a low mileage, one owner from new with full Peugeot service history I didn't care and bought it. We tried it on my brother's newer Lexia and Planet and that was the same.

The car has run faultlessly until late December. While on a flat section of motorway, at a steady 70mph and about 2000 rpm the car would judder, like it was running out of fuel.

I did a diag with Planet, it picked up code P0181 - diesel temperature sensor.

Those of you who know me will know I absolutely hate people who read a fault code and throw a part at the problem. But in my case I had no choice, Planet would not read the live data parameters of the Engine ECU. All I could do was get the fault code - I couldn't even clear it.

Anyway, I took a chance and bought a replacement part from the dealer, it was only 36 so well worth a chance.

But there was a niggling doubt in my mind. What if it wasn't this? As the car purred on tickover, whether warm or cold, surely it was more likely to be a throttle issue? My brother (pr1vatepiles) had this fault code early in 2013 and his car cut out immediately after starting. Mine wasn't doing that.

Two days on and its been absolutely fine, as smooth as anything.

However, I finally needed peace of mind to know if my Engine ECU was OK. There are so many stories on here about how a bit of water can goose things. Was there a leak in the engine bay I wasn't aware of?

So, a quick trip across to Wigan to see Paz45 with his setup of Lexia and Diagbox 7.

And thankfully everything was fine. It read all the ECUs, including the Engine one, and allowed me to clear the fault code and read the live engine data, including injector fuelling and temperature (when the code was logged it was showing the diesel fuel at -27'C!).

So, once again, a massive thanks to Paz45. He's given me peace of mind that the car is spot on and that I now need to look into getting Diagbox 7 up and running.

Both of which I partake of on a frequent basis.
Prospect do a nice little take home barrel of approx 9 pints for around 17.
