Hello,
I am new to this forum and have an issue. I have just bought above car and going to collect tomorrow. Apart that the vehicle is an mot failure the owner is also mentioning about starting problem. He is claiming that there is an issue with injector no1 and car will start when you bang the injector or spray quick start in to air intake. Is it possible that this is causing issue or this is a pressure problem and he just want to sell the car. Need quick reply please as collection tomorrow. Thanks

More likely to need a new cam sensor as it is close to no 1 injector. Diagnostics would show whether the ecu is receiving the correct signal from this sensor. Be prepared to work blind when you change it, only visible with a mirror and don't drop that small screw....

Just realised yours is the 2.0, maybe the cam sensor is more accessible than our 2.2. Around £25 so give that a go first, injector problem will be expensive as can be difficult to remove even by specialist with hydraulic puller.

Hi again. I have changed the cam sensor and still nothing. Car does not start unless quick start spray used. Any ideas please.

You can also get a leak off test done on the injectors, this will show if any are defective, various YouTube videos show how to do it. Let us know how you get on.

Finally after help from bettyswollocks managed to start the diagbox.
After the global test below is the only fault which came back on again:
Additional heating -- permanent fault -- flame without flow of fuel
fault code 1006
Any idea what this can be and will this be a cause of starting issues ???
As a reminder previous owner said that injector no 1 is at fault.
Thanks

Firstly that's a code you need live data while cranking :)

The code you have found is almost certainly to do with the underfloor heater this has no connection to non start of engine although whatever is stopping the engine starting may also stop the underfloor heater starting

Live data is under parameter measurements you need

cam and crank synchronisation

engine revs/speed

fuel pressure

These are the 3 main things that will stop it starting

Thanks for reply. While waiting for reply I've removed wiper mechanism to get in to injectors and notice that no1 is totally wet. Tomorrow will try to get to both sensors for camshaft and crankshaft position.

Why do you want to remove the sensors ?? planet will tell you if they are working just do a live data read as I have already said.

Injector being wet does not mean its fubbared

Just because the previous owner said injector is duff does not mean it is :)

I have learned from 25 years working on cars to ALWAYS diagnose yourself it tends to end up cheaper :)

Had a look at your readings and to be honest even if an injector was bad the fuel pressure is high enough that the engine should fire but ideally it should be closer to 300 bar so it may be an injector issue

If I was to guess I would change no 4 not no 1 but then no 4 on a Peugeot is no 1 to most people !! its at the timing belt end :)

I was a bit distracted by the reflections in the photos but I didn't see anything wrong with injector 1. Anyone else confirm?

Injector 4 flow correction is well out compared to other 3 and since injector 4 is at the no 1 end in any other language this is the only clue of anything wrong :)

Having said that the flow correction is still only a guide it does not mean anything is actually wrong I have asked a few times regarding flow correction figures and not had a definitive answer as to what they actually mean !!
