Hi,

I recently have had a problem with my Peugeot 207 GT; when running from cold, the engine starts perfectly and the car runs as normal, however, after about 15 minutes of driving, a message shows up displaying "Engine Management System Faulty" and the car goes into limp mode (almost sounds as if its misfiring as well) and struggle to go over 35mph. Once I turn the car off, the fans stay on for an extra 5 minutes running quite heavily (I think this is just a part of the limp mode).

I had an issue with the car around 3 months ago where two of the ignition coils broke, I was able to plug this into a diagnostics machine, see what the codes were and just change these and the car run perfectly again. This time, no codes are displaying on the diagnostics machine.

I was just wondering if anyone has had similar issues when the car is running hot and what the problem was?

Many thanks,
Mehay.

Was just a universal diagnostic machine (bought it when had a problem with ignition coils) which I see in the post from trustme shouldn't be the one to use. I will contact someone about getting the codes from Peugeot Planet diagnostic machine when I next get paid

Aye, cheers mate, will have a look at getting it hooked up to get some codes.

I've seen posts about water getting into ECU, however, would this cause it to only occur once the engine has got hot enough (around 15-20 minutes of driving)?

Thanks for the replies!

Was doing an oil change on the car yesterday as last time it was done was around 10 month ago. Drained all the oil and looked exactly as it should, changed the filter and replaced it with new oil, ran better than before and the message didn't appear. Next step is to change the spark plugs, fuel filters and air filter. However, was having a look round the engine today as seen some articles on PCV valves causing high oil consumption, a problem that my car definitely suffers from and couldn't really locate a valve but a hose going into the engine bay which was to do with the PCV system. So, pulled off the engine cover [just above ignition coils] (granted, this is not meant to come off we discovered after as it was glued on but will seal it back up once figured out what is causing this issue) and found all this brown gunky oil. (Pictures below)





Was just wondering if anyone has had this issue and what would be causing it as the oil in the actual car is exactly as expected except in this compartment.

I have a Peugeot 3008 diesel automation 2011 model. When I got this message I took it to the local agent and upon diagnosis it turned out to be that a diesel injector had to be replaced. Paid out of my nose for it!!
