Hi - this is my first post so please go gently. I have a 53 plate 307 HDi with 90 horse power. I had new diesel plugs and a new battery because of poor starting three weeks ago. Since then it has idled really badly. I've taken it back to the local garage that did the work and they said it'll take 3 weeks for the ECU to learn how to work again. I've driven it through the rev range over the weeks but it still idles with a really dirty noise and is using loads of diesel. Should I try and disconnect the battery again or is there something else wrong? Could they have used the wrong plugs? Any longterm damage? Please help?:(

You need to get it to a Peugeot specialist to have the fault codes read by the Planet software that the franchised dealers use. Simple as that. Where are you based?

What absolute lies! my guess is they disconnected the battery too quickly before all the networks went to sleep (three minute rule)
If this is done you'll get driveability problems etc.

Thanks for that. So what do you suggest. I think I'll take it back and get them to sort it. Is it repairable or will they need to involve Peugeot?

And its for instances like this that I tend to stick the dealer.... some may say I'm stupid for doing so, but the dealers know the car better than anyone else, and have all the tools to get it fixed properly, and normally a lot quicker than the independents do :nod:
