Hello all,

My peugeot 307 makes a high pitched squeal when I accelerate when the vehicle is stationary or change from
First to second gear. I am not sure whether this is normal for a Peugeot 307 1.6 petrol.

Is this normal for a Peugeot 307 engine or could there be a proble?

I looked at the engine and realized that when I accelerated the engine shakes- is this normal?

I have recently also noticed that when I change from
First to second gear something shakes underneath my car.

Any comments would be much appreciated

Thanks

Thanks pete.

Someone did mention it could be the belt as the weather is very cold too. Is the engine supposed to shake as I noticed when I was putti my foot down on the accelerator when vehicle was stationary

Hi there, i Wouldnt worry about engine shaking too much, ive noticed it on quite a few TU engines, sometimes when idling i can feel the engine shuddering..
If you engine is rocking quite badly and you can hear loud knocking sounds as it moves, i would get it checked out, theres a possibility of worn engine mountings..

If your engine was fixed solid in the engine bay, you would feel every movement it makes so it needs a little movement to breathe.
