Hi guys,

So is it just me or there is a lot of people with 3008's from 2010-2011 with fule injectors problems, jerky motors, etc?

Unfortunately I am one of them, well my wife's 3008.

Last week on the highway the car just entered safe mode with ESP/ABS light on, quite a scary moment when you just feel the car going down from 120 kmh to about 20 kmh.

So then we managed to clear the error with letting the car shut off completely...the light went off and the car returned to normal state, but when pulling ocassionally you felt the motor faile for a second and the returning to normal. So something was not right.

Booked our regular Peugeot dealer here in Portugal to check the error, and the verdict was injectors (1.450€) to fix the problem :nod::nod: Something like 1,262£ at today's rate.

The car is from 2011 was bought new, 65.000km all serviced in Peugeot official dealer.

And 2 years ago had a similar problem and the fuel filter was supposedly the cause.

What the hell is happening :confused: Peugeot should be acknowledging this problem.

I have a Peugeot 308 SW (2014) and I start to fear the future bills!!!:nono:

Hi. ESP/ABS light is usually fuel filter, mine needs changing about every 20,000 miles.

I also had the jerky feel when driving dealer said injector problem, I decided to get a second opinion from a diesel specialist, a bottle of jml deep clean injector cleaner in the tank and the problem was solved.
I am not a great believer in cures in a bottle but it worked. It’s not cheap about £35 a bottle.

ESP/ABS fault has NOTHING to do with filter thats madness !!

The abs fault came on because the engine revs dropped too much the ecu is very sensitive to voltage drops not anything to worry about.

If car is only used at low speeds with little revving this will cause injectors to gum up diesels work best with plenty revs and big miles in these cases injector cleaners can help.

Mike 3008

With regard to injector problems on 1.6 HDi. I have a 2015 3008 EGC and bought the car with 12000 on the clock. I have noticed diesel knock and pinking on low revs as you start to accelerate and was concerned that this would burn the injectors and cause premature failure. I decided to use BP diesel instead of supermarket fuel and the difference in engine quietness was incredible, the pinking and pre ignition stopped straight away. No more supermarket fuel for me.

I always thought the same but I have had the car six months and filled up at supermarkets many times with the same pre ignition sympton exhibited. I have filled up only once at a BP station and can't argue with the results.

In Dubai, there was a recall of 2011 model of 3008, I got a call from dealership saying they need to replace fuel injectors. I submitted the car and got it back the same day.

Diagnosed with injector problem

My 3008 1.6D Sport with about 61,000 miles on the clock and 2010 registration has just been diagnosed with an injector problem, injector number 3 apparently needs replacing. It is going to cost over £900 (including parts and labour) and to my annoyance the dealer cannot guarantee that the car has no other faults until the injector is replaced and a new ECU is downloaded (and presumably installed).

Sequence of events leading to the fault was as follows: as I was joining the A23 around Gatwick airport, I put the car into 5th gear and accelerated, an ESP/ABS warning and a message on the onboard computer screen reading "Engine Fault: Repair Needed", I put the car into 4th gear and stopped in the hard shoulder. After stopping in the hard shoulder I managed to drive the car back home, I wasn't too far away. The car was revving fine and allowed me drive up to 40 mph but was very careful not to engage 5th or 6th gear just in case.

Later AA looked at fault and downloaded the following errors:

Engine control 1 - 8K7 / Diesel CR/EDC SID 807 ECO Status :p050B - Starter control. Error Message : Actuation time too long. Error sporadic. Status :p14A4 - EGR cooling switching valve. Error Message : Component stuck closed. Error sporadic. Status :p0268 - Injector cylinder 3. Error Message : Short circuit. Error sporadic.

When AA arrived the message was gone and the light showing there was an engine fault was gone. I suspect the errors cleared after switching the radio off to call AA and them switching the engine off and back on again 40 minutes later when AA arrived. I noticed that as soon as AA plugged the diagnostics computer into the car the radio switched on. Incidentally the radio has been cutting off lately.

Peugeout denies that there is a link between the radio and the fault, they claim the have never seem this before and insist that Injector 3 needs replacing and that Peugeot's normal advice is to change all 4 injectors at the cost of £4,000. The car is not worth that money.

Free of charge obviously?:cool:

Maybe those recalls don´t reach Europe or at least Portugal...maybe Peugeot Portugal is just filling their pockets and we (in PT) don't know it!:nono:

3008VM your fault codes are ALL temporary faults quite why you need an injector replaced i dont know as with those faults i would be looking at charging circuit first incase the real problem is poor voltages !!

as for £900 for an injector they are having a laugh i dont think you are going to have a happy ending :)

2010 peugeot 3008 1.6 D injector fault

I have just purchased a 2010 3008 and had the same problem with the No2 injector which had to be changed. this must be a serious problem with this model vehicle. and a very expensive part to change.
I always thought peugeot were a good car to buy but having read the similar problems with this model, I would not recommend anyone to purchase another peugeot until they sort this problem out

3008 diesel 1.6 injector problem.

I to had a problem when the ESP/ABS light came on and had to limp 15 miles because I was in a area with no signal. I took it to three garages who diagnosed the problem but could not repair it because they ewere fully booked and I had 150 miles to home..recovery was called and I was piggy backed home to lincoln. lucky for me the recovery guy had been a peugeot mechanic and again diagnostics showed nO 2 injector fault.
This cost me a lot to get repaired .
There must be a common fault with these cars that peugeot are not accepting liability for.
Its the same as other major manufacturers who have covered up faults so they dont have to pay out . people should put a ban on buying their cars withn the fault it is only then these dispicable companies might take some notice.
So please pay attention Peugeot management.

You shouldn't buy another car, you should buy a bus pass.

The car is 9 years old and ONE injector has failed. Sucks but it's not the biggest issue in the world. Even in this whole thread, there's what... .3 other people with the same problem?

Injectors, like fuel pumps fail. They fail on any engine, from any manufacturer.

The worst part is, you don't understand the basics of how car manufacturers make cars. Do you really think Peugeot made the injectors? No... these injectors were sourced from places like Bosch, Siemens, Denso... the same injectors are in EVERY other diesel car out there.

You need to start your own thread....start with the model/year/engine size and anything that might help....if you just want a diesel specialist...google will work...

Eurocarparts has gone downhill, I rarely ever use them. Try and find the correct injectors on: You are being redirected... and buy on there. It should be cheaper than ECP :)

The "coding" isn't to unlock the injector or anything like that. It is so the ECU knows the calibration of the injector so it can squirt in the right amount of diesel every time. So yes, it does need coding in to the ECU.

ok thanks for the link,once ive removed the injector and cleaned up, it might be the copper seal that is worn thats causing the issue......is there a guide for 3008 1.6 hdi on the easiest way to remove the injector ? ive found guides for 1.6 hdi engines but not 3008,,its a tight spot to get to and would be nice to know what i need to remove to make life easier.......also you mentioned the coding,can most garages do this ? or does it need to be peugeot specifically ?
TIA
