Hello all, i'm after some advice. I bought my 406 coupe 2.2 hdi on Friday. I travelled a long way to pick it up. Whilst I was chatting to the dealer he told me a little about the history of the car. Included in the invoices was one from a Pug specialist in Dewsbury. It was for a particle filter change and regeneration and the cost was around £400.

I purchased the car and had a nice smooth drive back down south. I got about 200 miles down the road when the engine management light came on. I then pulled over at the services and phoned the garage back. They informed me that after getting the car back from the Pug garage the EML came back on after a while. The car went back to them and they said it was to do with a wire from the turbo boost sensor. They said they had rectified the problem and then the garage was happy.

I checked the invoice for the date and milage, the filter had only been changed 300 miles before I purchased the car. I plan to plug it in to see what codes come up but am worried that it will indicate the filter needs changing instead of the true fault with the vehicle.

The car is a 2002 model. If anyone has heard of similar problems the info would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom :thumb:

Might help...

Hey Tom, I got my 2001 coupe in 2009 and it already had an anti-pollution fault. After a bit of to-ing and fro-ing and fixing of red herrings, the fault was down to a throttle sensor (you'll have to excuse my lack of correct technical terms, it was a while ago).

One key thing that rings true with your problem was that the first code that came up in the diags was fixed, and that made the anti-pollution fault disappear for a short while, but then it returned and subsequent diag runs showed the true fault. I seem to remember my garage charged me £35 for the code read (which they re-read for free when it was seen they didn't fix the problem in the first instance) and then about £90 for the faulty sensor.

Not sure how much help that'll be, but better than a blank thread!
