Ok, I don’t know much about cars. I know I have Peugeot 308 1.5 litre, petrol, year is 2009.

There’s few things wrong with the car. It’s automatic and every time it changes gear, it jerks. That’s been the case for over 2 years I’ve had the car.

Then few months ago, my car started shutting off while I’m driving, mpg was 999,9 and anti pollution faulty light came on.

Gave it to the garage, they couldn’t find what was wrong though they noticed that there was thick white smoke coming from the car , at least when the car was idle.

I think they changed some filters and the car started working normally. Now it has the same problem. White smoke when I start or when I’m idle, anti pollution faulty light, engine light on and then high mpg.

It hasn’t started stalling yet but I’m thinking it’ll happen soon.

I’m on Birmingham, West Midlands. Any experts nearby to help?

Thank you so much in advance!

Thank you for the links. I didn't know about the rules for New members. I hope to contribute
as I learn more about cars. I've always been terrible at taking care of cars (maybe I fall into the stereotype that women just don't get cars) but I do hope to learn more and see if I can take care of my car better and perhaps even help others along the way!

PS: I'm Canadian recently moved to England, and I have to say cars here are entirely different than what I'm used to

Hi i was born in Canada but never been back too cold for me hes not getting on at you to know about cars just that its best to introduce yourself properly you dont have to know anything.

We have cars that do corners here :)

When my cousins come over we like taking them drives and laugh at them grabbing on to the roof handles life must be much slower in Canada :)

Auto boxes will missbehave if the engine is not working right so chances are thats why the box is rough although an oil change for the box would not do any harm

Hey

Im no expert but best thing is to just get the car scanned by somebody in the know.it will show up detailed reports on any faults within the car.it could be something simple from dirty maf/egr/exhaust system or a failing cat converter it's just to hard to say

Do you know if the garage checked your coolant and oil to rule out head gasket/engine block issues?
