My local garage diagonised my car as engine management light on saying dreaded depolution system faulty and I couldn't shift it despite using dpf cleaner and good run ! He says two codes show EGR electronic valve open and heater circuit valve open ! I've been priced at £70/hour by peugeot ! My car is 05 I was just wondering us it worth going as they prob find about £90k worth of faults lol!
Car drives ok but us bit groggy and not gone into limp mode ! The garage did day theres a tank on car that contains fluid to clean dpf filter and prob wants filling car has done 123k

if fluid is empty it likely won't be regenerating. Where are you based?

You need it on planet to find out exact codes.

The heater fault you mention may well be the glow plug relay not energising the plugs if the glowplugs don't work the DPF cannot regen they DO NOT aid starting they are for regen this is the most common fault

Also fuel cap magnets and fluid empty but you need a session on planet to test NOT CODE READ actually test items.

Hi

Is heater plug a big and expensive job ? Also should I be driving the car with these issues ? I'm only doing short journeys

Any idea of cost ?
Cost will depend on what is wrong. The error message could be one or more of several different things.

As has been suggested twice before, search the planet map for a member near you. Members will charge a fraction of the dealer cost. They can read the fault codes and get descriptions of the codes, read live data and test various items on the car. Once a planet diagnostic has been done you should be in a much better position to resolve the issue.

If you had spent a little time actually looking on the map for some help instead of repeatedly posting similar questions you might have already arranged for some assistance. Just asking more and more questions instead of taking some kind of action is not going to help you get the car running correctly and finally removing the error message.

De pollution fault on dashboard has NOTHING to do with DPF alone. It could be absolutely anything at all! I get it every few weeks, usually caused by a microscopic alien germ shitting in one of the many filters. It comes and goes... Garages talk b*ll*cks.
