Hi, my first post on this site. I've just bought a 508 which has been running like a dream. However yesterday I had a warning of Engine Oil Pressure fault - Stop the vehicle. The car appears to still be running fine. Does anyone have any ideas of what the problem could be please?

i've heard of oil pressure warnings on cheaper oil filters degrading, some of the 2.0hdi's have the paper cartridge type (mine included), with differing quality of 3rd party parts. Affects the 1.6HDI too. I'd start there.

I had sim problems, limp mode and both oil sensors ,high and low, errors. Solution was simple:), oil dipp stick was broken and bit of plastic left was used as gauge! Car had 1.5 l of oil extra and made oil sensors to trow error codes. I believe , one sensor is for “something is wrong with oil” and another one is only for high oil level. It caused mid sump gasket failure and oil leak...big job! I drove in limp mode over 25km and gearbox end seal damage and leak.... Another big job! All of this because of broken dip stick.
I would check dip stick as it is known issue.
cheers , good luck!

I have the same issue. Peugeot say that the timing belt is shredding and fibres have got in to the filter. Mine is 3 years old and under warranty.
Timing belt fibers have got into which filter?

See Post #2 this thread.
How would fibers from timing belt got in to the oil? Timing belt is under the cover and nowhere near the oil, at least on my 2.2 HDi.

I'm now in the same boat. Cold weather started last week, thats my 5 year old peugeot 308 gt screwed - started getting amber warning light about oil last week which progressed to red warning light. Got the engine flushed and the oil changed yesterday and its still coming up with a red warning light when switching on. Feel totally screwed because from what ive heard this is a common peugeot problem. Wont ever own another french car again
