Hi all I am new to these forum things, may have made some people unhappy today. I am wondering if anyone could help, I purchased my 2007 Peugeot 207 gti in April 2015, at first glance I was in love, (I have previously owned 2 Peugeot 206 gti 180's) at what I thought was a legitimate purchase, only to find a day later it had issues, after spending hundreds/over a thousand on her, I still have an issue. Fault code p2263, turbo pressure measured too high. With this the engine management light comes on and the car loses power/enters limp mode. When the code is erased the car drives fine, until you drive over 75 mph, or put your foot down and enter high end revs. Originally I had issues with the old turbo being worn, although the car has only done 40000 miles. I have also replace the fuel pump, had a full service, among other things renewed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated guys, as the car is a gem.

Cheers

welcome!!

just always a good idea to abide by forum rules or requests, sometimes forums can be a bit iffy with people taking the hump! lol

p2263 is a fairly common fault with the THP engine, it generally is the blow off valve or the turbo pressure control valve.

the turbo pressure control valve is under the inlet manifold and a bit of a pig to get too TBH.

the blow off valve is easy to check, 3 bolts and pull it off, what ur looking for is any splitting of the black plastic ring or and white marking around it, like below the one on the left below...



and this is the pressure control valve, its normally scored internally if its at fault.

Cheers, it's the first time I have ever used a forum, as am at my whits end with my 207. It's a lovely car and for the low mileage I thought it was worth the buy. But it's turned to be a bad buy atm. As I have spent a lot to fix issues since buying her. I don't want to stop and give up. But I have been looking at getting a 2013 Peugeot 208 gti. But don't want the burden of paying thousands, when I have had my car less than a year. I will assess the valves you have shown me, and will give yourself feed back as to whether it's solved my problem.
You have been a great help thank you again.

no worries!

yeh they great car when working rite and then when not they let u know it!

some real good support around for them though, maybe an hours drive or so for u but any issues I can highly recommend the Peugeot dealer at cribbs causeway in Bristol.

know the master tech there, actually have his old 207 gti and he is a top lad, known him for years.

hopefully u can get the car running well ASAP !!

Funny you should mention cribs causeway as that's where I have been looking at the 208 gti, at robins and day Peugeot there. But as you said the 207 is a nice car when it's working ok! ?

Despite being in Scotland I have been down that neck of the woods a good few times for weekends etc and also now that French car show is at Castle Combe it's always a good meet point for convoy.

Ah Scotland, fair old trek, took me 7 and a half hours to a place called Dunbar. May have to pop to one of the meets at castle coomb circuit. Always used to want to go to jap fest there as long ago well 9 years ago I owned a skyline. Now i am 34 times are getting on. And I do like my peugeots, as this is my 6 th one.

Also I have just checked the bov on my turbo (small break in the rain here), and there seems no damage, as you explained.

There's the main show at start of June there. Go with a club called 207info.

Good and bad about the bov there lol as thats more pricey to replace but the easier one to get too!

Hi all. I have 1.6 THP 155 from october 2010 and experiencing same issue with P2263. It is appearing only when i will go over 4000 rpm or will drive car under hill as well as when Im driving faster than 130km/h on motorway. Did any of you experienced it that way ?

Mr ADS77 is good at these things...had similar problems and he diagnosed the two main culprits....changed the recirculating valve thing myself as it had practically disintegrated and bought the other piece myself and got a garage to replace it as it is a pig to get to. Suggest you do the valve first and recommend you just replace it as it only costs £50ish. Then if that does nowt do the other piece.

Thank you very much for quick reply. Which exactly valve you meant to replace ?

1. Pierburg 7.01777.18.0 (2nd on picture above)

or

2. PIERBURG 7.01830.8.0 (1st on picture) or maybe upgraded 7.01830.13.0 but i dont know if it will match to 1.6 thp. I think 99% yes cause looks same.

Do the easy one first, the one at the front of the car....three bolts as AD77 said..the first picture. I put an Ebay item link in the last message...pretty sure it is the correct part but check first.

Then if that doesn't work replace the other one. But as said before the second one is a pig to get to.

it is also on the 1st couple of posts on this thread that information have linked too.

do you get engine management light on for the fault?

there is also a new tech bulletin that required to put a protection on the filter of the turbo pressure regulation electrovalve breather pipe, the 2nd part that ken refers too, its a new instruction from Peugeot in the last few months, but would still look at the blow off valve as 1st port of call.

Thank you once more time for advice. I will check this post which you are referring to ASAP. Yes i have engine light turning on with error P2263. Only when car has more than 4 000 rpm or when Im accelerating while driving to the hill. As well when I will reach around 130 km/h on motorway. Then I need to stop the car and reset error over OBDII. It will not reset itself. Of course car has no power when light is on. Everything is ok when im driving without using a acceleration to much. I left car once in garage and they told me that they will put this filter protection. I believe it is end of the thin pipe behind engine head. I opened it and I did not see any filter in it, not at all. Only whole covered by some plastic and thats it but i dont think that it is causing an issue. Was already changing BOV valve as it was completely broken in June 2016 so I did not suspect it actually so quickly but just in case i will have a look on it. I already ordered a electro valve ( the one under intake manifold ) and as well as chain tensioner as I started to hear noise in the morning ( all chain set was changed in June 2016 as well ). I also took under consideration vacuum pump ( but seems working ok). Boost sensor on inlet is looking fine as well. So I will let you know after checking the 3 bolt valve tomorrow.

yeh its the breather pipe from the boost control solenoid, the one under the inlet manifold, Peugeot diagrams say should be attached on back of engine but most are hanging next to the timing side of the engine, will try upload some pics when am home.

blow off valve ( the one in front of engine with 3 screws ) checked and there is no any sign of damage. I took it home and disassemble it on parts. Everything looks good, nothing broken. Yellow rubber was a little dirty but nothing serious. So seems like it is not an issue.

Guys, i know that it can be out of subject a little bit, however it is still related to that issue. Do you know if this engine has turbocharger with fixed geometry or variable one ? If variable, maybe it is an issue here, got dirty with carbon, etc.
