Recall to check engine components
I was reading the European forums and owners there have just started to receive recall notifications for a potential engine problem on what seems to be the 1.6 diesels. I had a look on the DVSA website and they do list recalls for the Traveller and also Citroen and Toyota that looks potentially quite significant. In the worst case they say it may need an engine change. It appears to apply to vehicles made Oct-Nov last year. It also includes vans. Chassis numbers are quoted for Citroen and Peugeot but not Toyota.

Thankfully my car was built just after these chassis numbers.
A wider search on the DVSA website also shows that a similar looking recall also applies many other cars in the PSA range that have the same engine model number manufactured over a similar period. However, it is a differently numbered campaign, so may not be the same potential issue.

Its most likely the same issue as although the engines have different codes etc they are all basically the same so if the factory made a mistake or parts were wrong they will all be affected so if it affects the cars it will also affect the vans.
assume nothing check everything twice !!
