Im not a mechanic and dont have many tools and not much spare money and time as im moving house shortly

Iv only owned the car about a month and since buying it iv had nothing but problems, hence why i got it cheap!

Firstly its the RHS engine

When i finally got it insured and on the road last week i noticed the turbo wasnt working, the engine light came on and wouldnt rev over 2k and struggles to get over 50mph unless im going downhill and said anti pollution fault then said unblock diesel filter and also abs not functioning! (I know it means dpf on exhaust)
I checked the large hose that comes from the intercooler and this leads to something with a butterfly flap inside, this is open when the engine is cold? Not sure if thats correct but i noticed some oil inside this flap? Anyways i put that back together and did about 40 mile drive and took it on the motorway for a couple of miles, the next day i started the car and no lights? No warnings NOTHING! The turbo is still not kicking in but it does go through the revs apart from 4th and 5th, they are limited to 2k(ish) revs but 1st 2nd and 3rd arnt too bad?

Iv seen loads of posts about this but no real solution? Im on a budget and dont want to get rid of the car!

Iv heard people talk about vac pipes and solenoids etc can someone show me a picture of what they look like on the car so i can find them and how i check them

Also when i have found the fault and sorted the problem thats caused the limp mode/no turbo, do i have to take it to a main dealer to reset the ecu or will the turbo just come back after resetting the codes on a normal diy scanner?

Any help or point me in the right direction would be grateful:confused:

Sorry War & Peace LOL

Hi Scott & Welcome

First thing to do is read the below post and get your posts up to 20 so you can Private Message a Member with Peugeot Planet 2000 ( Clone of dealer Diagnostics)

http://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/general-discussion-2/how-contact-member-peugeot-planet-diagnostic-28190/

Here is the new updated PP2000 Map as some members on the original are no longer active etc etc

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=214397633218647067111.0004dc947e5c1752ca0a2&msa=0&ll=54.521081,-1.647949&spn=10.175332,28.54248

Second thing is update and post your location, as there may be a member just around the corner willing to help or someone with local knowledge that can recommend a decent garage to you.

Thirdly and your car details to your signature again speeds up any responses as we will know petrol diesel model year etc etc.

Now the lack of Turbo boost could be many things ranging from difficult and expensive to relatively cheap and easy to fix. 1 thing you could try is unplug your Mass Air Flow Sensor ( Its a plug just behind the air filter box ) and see if there is any improvement. If this fails it has the effect of turning off the turbo as the car has no idea how much air is entering the engine and how much boost to develop. Also when was it last serviced? a block air filter and fuel filter etc will greatly reduce engine performance.

Next ABS fault, Probably a faulty sensor only about £10 off ebay and not too difficult to change with basic tools and mechanical knowledge or about an hours labour at a garage. A Member with PP2000 can identify this.

Finally Antipollution fault / Unblock Filter this is probably connected to the loss of power. This generally happens when the filter cannot regenerate due to a fault somewhere on the system ( It needs everything to be working in order to regen ie glowplugs etc etc ) Or the Eloys fluid is low / empty ( a Catalyst added automatically to the fuel to aid this process ). Yes the DPF can be removed etc Cleaned and or programmed out of the car but you will need to sort the problem out before this happens as it may cause bigger issues in the long run. Vac / Boost pipes are all the pipes connected to the Turbo and intercooler etc check them for splits etc and that they are all connected.

Personally I would contact a member on here with Planet and offer them a few Beer tokens and get a FULL DIAGNOSTIC done with live data etc and then post up the findings on here and we can help and advise on here as I would bet someone has had one if not all of the problems you are currently experiencing.

Hope this helps and you get it sorted :thumb:

Hi Colin,

Thanks for that, i have updated the details.

i have also contacted someone on here with PP, fingers crossed he gets back to me asap

i will check the air mass sensor tonight and see what happens, the turbo seems to be at the back of the engine and a pain to get to, il see what i can do as im limited with light as its pitch black when i get home from work

will keep you updated, thanks for the help guys, very appreciated!

i appreciate that craig mate, the only problem i have is the car struggles to get past 50mph, it will do it but as soon as i hit a slight incline on motorway it slows down, not sure if it would be safe to drive on motorway that long?

Also to colin, im not sure when the last service was done, i dont have any service history with the car but its covered 200,364 miles! i was going to service it but not until i have this problem sorted and moved house etc

the doser/flap is only really used when the car is cold and does not need to use the intercooler also used when the FAP/DPF needs to be cleaned it will close to help the regeneration process quicker,

the abs/esp lights are 60% always down to the FAP/DPF faults, since you have no power I would say that your filter may be blocked how many miles on the car? also you could try and unplug the maf sensor and swap the EGR valve with the turbo one but this might be point less as your car is in limp mode you could always try this if you wish,

if you get a member from here to put the car on planet I would get them to take a screen shot of the faults on the engine and post on here I would say there might be a few on yours, its worth checking the FAP/DPF on planet to see how much its blocked again a screen shot would be good to,

Well Done Sir I am Impressed!!!

Yep on the 2.0 HDi the turbo is hidden down the back of the engine and a bit of a pig to work on the only saving grace is that even though you have some kind of issue at the moment generally the turbos are quite strong and dont need fettling with!

Also to colin, im not sure when the last service was done, i dont have any service history with the car but its covered 200,364 miles! i was going to service it but not until i have this problem sorted and moved house etc
Have a look at the weekend at the colour and state of the oil it should be black ( All Diesels are ) and very thin as it uses 5w 30 fully synthetic low saps if memory serves. if in doubt swap it out! Also check the state of the air filter only a couple of screws and you can gain access if its all cacked up then you prob need a service. Prob not going to solve the problems you have but will certainly need doing. As they say an ouce of prevention beats a pound of cure! Also if you want to know the dangers of not changing your oil regular search for Diesel Runaway on youtube! some of the vids are scary but also slightly amusing at the same time!

just to update...

i have unplugged the MAF sensor, car ran alot better! not 100% but could slightly feel the turbo in 2nd and 3rd but 4th and 5th are pants! MPG also went down drastically!

it also revved all the way through in 1st 2nd & 3rd? no warning messages but the eml has come back on! could this be from unplugging the MAF?

Il have a look at the air filter tonight as im guessing its not been serviced for a long time! its done just over 200K!

Any suggestions why its running a lot better when i unplugged the MAF??

Faulty MAF?

Yes on the 110bhp models.

Because the faulty MAF is giving incorrect information to the ECU. Disconnecting puts the car in a default operating mode.

would you say its the MAF that is causing the loss of turbo?

iv bought a new air filter and some carb cleaner to try clean the MAF sensor with and see if that helps

hi I have a 307 1.6 lx petrol its on a 02 plate with 153000 on clock. after driving for a while a get a cataylac converter message followed by anti pollution, so a went to buy new cat and fitted today. problem is still occurring after driving about a mile down the road the petrol gauge went from red to basically nowt then fuel light came on. so a managed to get h9me and left car to tick over, how ever the whole car seems to shake? and splutters any ideas
ALSO ABS LIGHTS ON COULD THIS BE RELATED IN ANYWAY?

Hard to say without a diagnostic.

I'd get the P codes then do a live data test to see what values the MAF sensors are measuring.

Hi Colin, checked the air filter lastnight and it looks brand new! not a mark on it so im guessing the previous owner has already gone down that route.
just out of interest, when i took the air filter out, there was like a type of radiator/intercooler underneath? any ideas what this is?
Im hopefully going to get on a code reader this weekend, a family friend ownes a garage and will do it for £10 so hopefully give me a better indication where the fault is.
On the otherhand, i managed to get it to 70mph on motorway lastnight! took a bit of time but i finally got there :D

You need to read live data and only Planet can do this.

Unless you just want a generic fault code and are happy to throw parts at a problem, parts which might otherwise be OK and faults further up the chain are causing codes to be produced.
