Hi

I have a fault with 307 hdi sport CC (136), at idle wether hot or cold it rattles/vibrates intermittently, owned the car of about 10 months and fine untill a couple of weeks ago when this started.

Any ideas, also how do you remove the plastic engine cover on this model, cant find any plastic screw/clips that I had on previous hdi models.

my 407 clips on, and pulls off. Would need more info on the rattle, does it go when you push the clutch pedal, is it noisy on start-up and switch off?? It may be a flywheel or belt pulley. can you describe the rattle with a bit more detail? May just be something touching the chassis.

Does it make a ratteling sound between 800 and 1200 rpm's?

Does the sound clear up at about 1300 rpm's

Does it disappear for a while (when stopped at traffic lights) and then suddenly reappear?

I have the same problem on my soon to be traded in 307. On my soon to be ex car the problem is caused by 2 injectiors that are leaking. and a dodget EGR valve.

Check for what look like oil deposits by the injectors to start with.

Hard to describe but it seems the whole engine vibrates, it doesn't do this all the time however, I have the car this week so will check out further. My wife reckons it also has a flat spot in 4th gear when accelerating hard but clears when put in 5th. For information car is a 2007 with only 32k miles.

WIll check for oil deposits tommorrow

thanks for your help

Get a diagnostic check done.
Note, There won't be any oil deposits on your engine as its 2.0, as far as i remember Hysteria says his car is 1.6hdi, thus a whole lot different.

idling problems/miles-to-next-service

First drive this morning problem not re-occured yet, however when we bought the car it had 27.5k miles on it and had been serviced at peugeot 2 weeks prior, the mileage till next service reading when you turned the ignition on was showing 19.5k to go. the last time I drove the car it (bout a month ago) was showing 15k to go which ties up with the 5k miles the car has done in our ownership (27k-32k) i noticed this morning it is now showing 4,850k miles to go a drop of 10k!

Any ideas?

Correct, my EX car was a 1.6 Hdi.

As to the problem of your maintenance intervals suddenly going nuts can you please post here what was maintained the last time by the mechanic just to rule out a few things.

Given all your symptoms I wouldn't rule out the engine managment system.

Having a peugeot specialist look at car tommorrow, will post findings if any!

Was suggested that it could be a leak from the diesel filter housing apparently this is common on the 136 BHP HDi, causes similar symptons and doesn't cause the engine management light to come on.

follow up on idling fault

Had peugeot mechanic (through a friend) look at the car, His first thought following the described symptons was an air leak via the fuel filter housing (noticable air bubles in breather pipe at 1500 RPM) apparently a common fault on hdi (136) engines, Fault still not re-occured and no engine management light up. WIll get diagnostics done if fault reappears.
