Hello everyone, This is my first post and need help with my wife's car. It's a 2005 307SE 1.6 HDI 110bhp (72K) and recently its running ok but idle is rough. So far we have has no warning lights but today I put my OBD2 reader to check for codes
P1351 - idm input circuit malfunction
P2408 - fuel cap sensor / switch circuit

Where should I start?? FAP?? Replace the sensor?? Will I need to top up with additive?? Should I remove the FAP and clean it or get the removal & remap done?? Don't want to spend money and still have the same problems.

If you can give me some pointers that would be great and finger crossed keep the cost down.

known 407's to run rough with fuel cap sensor failure.
So changing the fuel cap sensor will cure the problem?? My wife uses the car mainly in and around town. I am planning on taking the car out for a decent run on some dual carriageways to give it a clear out.

Looked on eBay and I can get a sensor for £36 and look at a few things on Google on how to fit and I will do it myself.

No gtee it's the fix, planet would be best for diagnostic.

The p2408 on the last 407 I scanned was a failed fuel cap sensor, which did fix the rough running and to be honest if you don't sort it your problems will only get worse so for £36 it's worth a shot.

Don't discount dealers for part, last time I checked they were cheaper than ebay the 407 one was £26

Thanks for all your help. Will try the sensor first see what happens.

Wife's car in the garage today. Fingers crossed these two things sort our problem. The car is starting to cost use money and money is in very short supply just now.

Good stuff. Keep us posted and remember that the best source for diagnostics and Peugeot specific advice is this forum, not necessarily a garage that deals with a wide range of makes and models and relies on AutoData (which doesn't have the 307's ABS sensor problem listed as a known issue).

Thanks for the reply Gibbo. Just hope this is the end of it. Car has been great but in the past year it's cost just under £900, front brakes needed clean & front nearside spring broke & needed replaced along with the bearings. We traded in a problem Renault Megane.

Garage just off the phone. He said the juddering problem looks like the flywheel is on its way out. So new flywheel & clutch, looking near £1000.

So far Eurocarparts are the cheapest for both flywheel & clutch. Does anyone know the garage time for changing??

I have searched and searched and searched. I don't have any warning lights on the dash and today we only changed the fuel cap sensor. Picking the car up tomorrow from the garage and plan on clearing the current errors. Going to take the car for a good blast to regen and finger crossed we sort the problem. If its fails I am going to change the fuel filter first and buy some fuel additive (millers). I will again take it for a good 30 mile run. If this fails its up to a peugeot specialist to give me his opinion.

Spoke to a local Peugeot specialist. He said its not the clutch as it had nothing to do with rough idling. He mentioned egr, dpf & timing. Cam shaft belts jumping and still looks like it will cost £1k. The garage I use never changed the glow plugs and as the guy said this will stop the dpf regening.
