Hi, my 308 GT 2.0 Hdi has recently started with issues! Starter fuse kept blowing last week and when starter motor was replaced it was full of filings. Now the engine judders after shut down. Also noticed acceleration isn't as quick and it holds back on acceleration, a bit like when your choke used to be out too much in older cars.

Am I right in thinking it might be flywheel/clutch issue? Car only done 66,200 miles on a 57 plate. Any ideas welcome :)

Thanks

Were the filings actualy inside the motor casing or stuck all around the pinion. If inside the motor casing then that would indicate something internal, most likely a bearing slipping in the end plate and wearing it down but if it was round the teeth on the pinion and the teeth were ok then that would point to a problem with the flywheel, either the ring gear or some other wear. Can't see a clutch issue causing the engine to overun or affect acceleration apart from slipping but that would be pretty obvious with the engine speed much faster than it should be for the speed of the car.

Get a diagnostic done with live data readings as well as any fault codes. You could take it to a dealer or contact a forum member near you to get a diagnostic done for a lot less money.

Thanks for the advice Storeman.

I'm not 100% on where the filings were as a garage replaced the starter motor for me. All they told me when I took it back with the judder is that filings were everywhere. To prove their point they got a magnetic screwdriver and put it against the bottom of the engine near the starter motor and loads of fine metal filings clung to it. As they're not Peugeot specialists they were reluctant to say what it was but said they would speak to a clutch specialist to see if they've heard of it before.

I checked the info on this forum and under 307 faults dodgey flywheels have caused a judder on shutdown but no ones mentioned anything about reduction of power on acceleration. Mines normally dead nippy but was really struggling at 70 yesterday.

I'll speak to the garage tomorrow to see if they can shed anymore light on where filings came from. For now I'll just keep my 308 parked up.

Thanks very much.

Did you find out what the problem was because i have the same car and same problem. It doesn't over run but ive noticed the lack of power
Hi Paddy1977 the results on the filings came back from the clutch specialist as being from the flywheel. Therefore not wanting the expense of a new flywheel and then a clutch in a few months I took the decision to change my car.

If you've got a garage, buy the bits online and replace yourself the costs will be dramatically reduced. It just wasn't viable for me to pay the repair costs.

Good luck getting it sorted.
