I've had my 207cc for just over a week now. A few days after buying it the Depollution system faulty sign popped up, it didn't do it every time I drove it and the car drove fine. I took it into the Peugeot garage (I didn't buy it from them but didn't want to risk driving all the way to where I bought it) who ran a diagnostic check, cleaned the cylinders and said it was ok but to keep an eye on it. It was fine for a couple of days but did it again yesterday and it was like there was no power. Luckily I was only a few minutes from home and when I turned the engine off the fan sounded like it was going mad!!
Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? It's still under warranty from the dealer I bought it from, will this be covered?!
Many thanks for any help/advice you can give

He just said he cleaned the cylinders. He didn't really explain much else! He asked when the spark plugs had last been done but as I'd only just bought the car I didn't know!

could be many things but it was a faulty coilpack on my mrs 1.4 petrol 207
They changed two of the coil packs which seemed to solve the problem. However, the day I went to pick it up the Depollution System Faulty sign came back on.

I just want my car back now :(

i threw a couple of coils on the daughters as same symptoms and coil codes, but it was the chain, get them to check the chain, tensioner and valve timing.

if thats all ok, ask them about cleaning the inlet valves.

worth noting that our exhaust vanos solenoid was shot at 60k, heat damage from the manifold i suspect, would work intermittently then stick.

of corse it may be something more simple, did you get any codes of them?

you really need to get the codes that were on the car so we can help you properly, otherwise its just gonna go round in circles.

cleaned the cylinders.... ask again what method was used.

Thanks for all your help so far. The Peugeot garage have been most unhelpful in telling me what they actually did with the cylinders so I have no further information to add I'm afraid.
My car is still with the independent dealership I bought it from.
There is no fault code, just Misfire. So I guess it's needle in a haystack time!! They've changed the airflow valve and are looking at 'a couple of other things' They've had my car back for over a month now and I'm getting a little frustrated!
Maybe you can all send me pictures of you driving your 207s in the sunshine, just to cheer me up!!!

Over a month? What are they doing to it? That is totally unacceptable and I would certainly be pressing for action either get your money back or inform them in writing that they have 24 hours to rectify the issue or the car will be repaired elsewhere at their expense and don't forget to invoice them for your time, inconvenience etc.

The obviously don't have a clue what they are doing.

Would show u the car in sunshine but am lying by the pool on holiday in Pefkos, Rhodes!!!!

Demand to be told to have a copy of the service reports they have for the work they have on the car, it's ur car and u have every rite to know what they have done or not done to the car.

What aren't they doing to it?!! Apparently whatever work they do to it the depollution system faulty sign goes away but comes back a few days later!
Anyone know of a decent Peugeot specialist mechanic?!!
Maybe I should get hold of a Peugeot Planet and try to find out for myself what's wrong!

hard to pinpoint the fault without any proper codes, obd2 can find some general codes but planet/diagbox is what is needed.

is it just a misfire or is the engine making funny noises,no power,loud exhaust note etc?

When I had it, it was running just fine. It only went into limp home mode once, and that was on a very short journey. It didn't do it again. Other than that there was no loss of power, no over heating, no strange noises, nothing! There was one time that, after turning the engine off I thought the cooling fan seemed to be very loud but I may just have been paranoid- I'd only owned it a week when this started to happen so hadn't got to know my car very well at all!

I think it is time to reject the car and demand a full refund. It was faulty when they sold it and they haven't fixed it so end of.
