Hi Forum Members,

I have Peugeot 307 estate 2.0 HDi 110bhp 53 reg. I bought it 5 weeks ago and suddenly car is loosing power?! I was driving on motorway and lost power and warning light came on dashboard:



Then the next day car was fine, normal power, no warning lights...soon the day after same fault again..Don't know whats is going on, problem is keep coming back and disappearing ...?!?! Car has 84k on the clock and MOT was recently done without any problems.

Please help pointing me into right direction


Many Thanks
Antony

Hi,

Thanks for your advice, I've done diagnostic check and unfortunately my problem is a result of two apparently 'common faults':

- first particulate filter blocked

- faulty EGR valve

I've checked my local Peugeot dealer and price for new filter is £405.66 - is not that bad ....but from what I found on forums removing particulate filter could bring some benefits ;)

Should I replace that filter or remove it completely from the exhaust system?
Anyone had similar problems or some experience in that area?

what you mean with spanner?! just push something through ? I thought is much more complicated operation...but that sounds good ;) (cheap option)

Local dealer advised my to try regeneration - to drive under certain circumstances... - done it just before xmas but problem came back...

thanks gibbo, I found lots of very interesting topics about dpf.... it's tempting to actually see the difference after modification, apparently in my case : 307 2.0 HDi 110bhp removing dpf and remapping ecu could add 30-40 % power and torque !! It's hard to believe how small modification in settings can change so much at the end of the day engine stays the same?!

If I would like to remove DPF and remap my car - is anyone on the forum from Taunton, Somerset, UK ?

I'm looking for descent company in my area - (I'm not fancy driving many miles just for modification...)

I check my dear friend google:thumb: and I found two companies in Taunton UK advertising as dpf removal specialists :


P&P Auto Services DPF Removal, Engine Remap, Automotive Diagnostics | Taunton

Radical Remaps DPF Removal Taunton ECU Remapping | Engine Remapping | Engine Tuning - Radical Remaps - DPF Removal Taunton


Anyone had any experience with these two?
