Hi, If possible could you guys please help me out with a power or should I say lack of power issue that I have have with my 05 plate 307 2.0 hdi xsi ( 136 bhp )?

The trouble started a week ago when I went to start it and my fingers slipped off the key just as the car went to start. So I switched ignition off and restarted. Car started perfectly as per normal but on my journey to work ( 25 miles ) I had no real power / turbo not working for the whole journey.

I let the car cool down for an hour at work and when I road tested it the power was back:confused:

The car ran fine for a couple of days and then the fault came back. The next day the car was fine again and then went back to no real power and has remained since. If you keep the revs high the car does pull but I am guessing that this is just the torque because you can't hear the turbo spooling ?

What I have noticed is that there appeerrs to be a dump valve noise as if the boost is being sent out to the atmosphere each time I change gear with the revs high. I have no engine warning lights, temp is the same as is the fuel economy. The only other thing different other than the performance issue is a slight fluid leak, not sure if its oil but it has started to appear on my driveway.

I booked it in at a local garage who ran a diagnostics on it and it came up with the following faults

P0495 - coder fan outside set range
P2563 - Feedback potentiometer for turbo pressure too high
P0299 Boost pressure control attained pressure too low

So I took it to a local diesel specialist ( Parkinsons of Peterborough ) who checked all intake pipes and found them all to be ok. They suggested getting the DPF serviced at Peugeot main dealer.

So I took it to Peugeot who did their own diagnostic and they informed me that they had found the issue ( Turbo electro valve ) so they replaced this item and the car was fixed and ready for collection.
I picked the car up and guess what.....??? No power :mad: Not bad seeing that it cost me £173.15 :eek:

So I contacted Peugeot and got it back into their work shop yesterday, They phoned me yesterday afternoon informing me that they had stripped the car down / removed subframe and found the real issue with the car, This time they reckon I need a new Turbo pressure regulation valve ? They also called it a Turbo repeat sensor and quoted me £196.06 for the part and £537.28 labour :eek:

I said how can this be, you said it was the electro valve that was the issue which turned out not to be and now you want to charge me to change something else. What happens when you change this and it wont be working properly to to which they replied, Its definetly this part and the car will be 100% working after this. I requested that they refund me for replacing something that didnt fix the issue to which they replied by saying that the part they replaced was faulty and needed changing so refund is out of the question !! ??

My girlfriend has lost faith in Peugeot Peterborough and has requested that the car be put back together so that I can get another garage to sort. A friend of mine reckons the part they say I need can be purchased for around £70, Not the £196.06 Peugeot quoted and is a fairly simple job to do once you gain access to the part by simply unsrewing the old sensor and screwing in the new one ??

Please could someone let me know in simple plain english what each part does and how easy is the issue to fix ??

Your help would be much appreciated

If possible could someone please post up some pictures of the solenoids that you can swap to check boost ? I am thinking it might be something simple like this that is causing my boost issue ? Obviously I am not mechanically minded hence the request.

Also does anybody have any pictures of a turbo repeat sensor ? And part number so that I can order one ?

Cheers
