Hi,

Can anyone advise?

Service clock 2 weeks ago showed Spanner 6500
then dropped rapidely down to 4050
And today shows 1650

What does this mean?

I have a smoke problem, a white/blue smoke once engine is turned on, after the car has warmed up it goes away. this smoke is present with a chug sound to the engine.

Checked oil - oil is full and correct colour ( no mayo)
Rev is below 10 when stationary ( not sure if this matters)
Checked smell of smoke and smells like Diesel to me.

Any ideas/advice/help appreciated.
Thanks
Zoe

Car details:
Peugeot 206 HDI 2002 reg.
Diesel engine 1.4ltr

Think these where faulty in the early ones ,phone peugeot dealer to see if there is a recall , if not then change unit which is expensive or use mileage below to time service intervals.

Diesel injector cleaner might help with the chugging. Are you using much oil? Blue smoke could be worn valve rubbers; it's a toss up as to whether they need replacement depending on how much oil is being used.

Thanks everyone for advise. I have only recently purchased this car plus i don't know much abotu cars, if not anything. But obviously i know when things don't seem right.

I will get some of that Diesel injector cleaner and give that a try.

As for the smoke, yeah its a white/blue...ish smoke that puffs out first time the car is started, Each time it is started up in fact with a constant chugging (as if the car is coughing) Which does eventually go away once car has been run. I will give a Peuguot dealer a ring and explain my problem to see if they can advice. Maybe it just needs a good service. I will try whatever advise i am given and then maybe it'll sort out these little hipcups.

As for oil useage, the car isn't really out running everyday, it is occasionally taken out. I am not able to drive the car yet as i am still learning to drive. I checked the oil level when the car was purchased (2 weeks ago) and it was full, then i checked it again the other day and it was full. Oil is the correct colour etc...

Has anyone got any basic advise for this model that i should know about for future reference?

I want to learn everything i can to make sure i look after this car, it's my first car :)
