Peugeot 307 Checking a Noise

There was a Peugeot 307 in our workshop last week to check a noise. We test drove the vehicle with the customer to verify the knocking was coming from the suspension when driving.

Peugeot 407 Multiple Warning Lights

We worked on the below Peugeot 407 last week that had multiple warning lights on the dash.

Peugeot-407-Spoiler-Lights-Wheels-RamSpeed-2 Peugeot-407-Engine-RamSpeed-1The vehicle was scanned and numerous error codes were stored. Most of the errors were due to under voltage and the misfire errors in the engine control was a concern. We inspected the top of the engine and found oil was leaking into the cylinders from the camshaft covers. The coils and spark plugs were removed to clean out the oil of the cylinders and then they were refitted. We cleared the errors and road tested the vehicle though the misfire had disappeared. This was not a fix for the misfire and to fix this, the ignition coils may need to be replaced along with the camshaft cover gaskets.

Due to the current status, we replaced the alternator and battery as required and noted that the belt tensioner and pulley were noisy, which may need to be replaced soon.

Peugeot 307 Noise Diagnostics

Below is a Peugeot 206 which had an electrical issue we needed to look into.

We worked on a Peugeot 307 recently that was running rough and had a noise while driving.

A system check was done into the rough running and noise which showed the cam sensor was faulty. The rear left wheel bearing failed and the right bearing was making a noise which would both need to be replaced.

The ECU was removed and reset for the new cam sensor and 2 new rear wheel bearings were fitted. Also replaced were the rear tyres with Pirelli’s and brakes.

Peugeot 206 Electrical Issue

Below is a Peugeot 206 which had an electrical issue we needed to look into.

After 10 to 15 minutes of driving the car would rev up and down at the lights. Also the headlights would brighten and dim at the same time. The battery and charge were tested which were all ok. A system scan was done which brought up a permenant fault related to the steering pressure sensor which had malfunctioned, further diagnostics would be required. We then smoke tested the vehicle and found a large opening at the intake which could be the possible cause of the engine fluctuation. The intake hose was tightened and vehicle tested which showed no fluctuations presently.

Peugeot 307CC Throttle Body Replacement

Below is a Peugeot 307CC which we worked on that needed a new throttle body.

Once we replaced the throttle body an adaption and coding was done as required. A road test was then carried out after the repair which was all ok. Another test drive was done which brought up an engine warning light. This light was regarding the coolant temperature sensor which occurred because the coolant leaked through the sensor into the wiring and to the control module. We cleaned out the leak and replaced the coolant sensor as required.
