Question about 2005 Peugeot 407 2.0

2 Answers

Surging diesel Ocassional surging at idle -just under 800rpm up to just under 900. Car jerks forward when stopped so I have to engage N until ready to proceed. It does it when underway but it's all spasmodic rather than continuous. The anti pollution symbol red light is on. Garage thinks it is an air leak causing surge. No black smoke. Starts perfectly. 77000km. Any ideas

Replace fuel filter and check for fuel leaks. Check and change the pollution canister or purge valve.

SOURCE: Blue smoke out of tailpipe both at idle & acceleration

Gary,
The initial oil leak will most likely be attributed to a worn seal or gasket. I'm sure your aware of this anyway. My concern is that the additives, although advertising a sure fix, may have made your problem worse. I personally don't believe you can buy any product that will fix faulty seals and gaskets as you drive. Typically we as drivers do not pay attention to a fluid leak in it's early stages. There might be a chance that then would be the time that these "gasket in a can" fixes would treat or slow down the leak. What will ultimately happen is the gasket goes bad anyway. Most of us don't notice the drips until they're all over the driveway. You see, if you were adding these things and not actually putting in the proper viscosity oil during this time. The oil got diluted and internal engine component wear may have been accelerated.The internal oil passages can clog and bearing surfaces can lose they're critical tolerances. In many cases causing low oil pressure. Your engine's oil pump pickup screen may be partially clogged with sludge as well after the motor flush knocked all the gunk into the pan.
As for the smoking, the oil rings on one or more pistons probably have broken. Your engine's pistons will have a couple of "rings" that seal the piston in the cylinder. There'll be a set of compression rings and an oil ring. The bottom ring is the oil ring that keeps excess oil out of the cylinder. What happens is the oil ring breaks and allows the engine oil up into the combustion chamber. There it's burned producing your cool James Bond smoke screen. Unless you plan on rebuilding the engine, chances are you'd be better of replacing it with a used one. It's usually much less expensive that way.
*personal experience*
My vehicle at the time was a 1990 Acura integra w/200000 miles on the engine. One day as I was happily driving down the road....poof....James Bond!.. Car lost power and I couldn't see for blocks behind me. Didn't need GPS to find my house that day, just had to follow the cloud. This particular vehicle actually never smoked prior to that day. Anyway, I pulled the engine, and took it apart. Sure enough, as I had feared, the oil ring on #3 piston was broken. Ultimately I replaced the engine.
Good luck with yours, and I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.

See if you can get the codes read, your model often has a particulate filter and all that entails but not allways on the 2,0 HDi, it seems too much of a coincidence to not be connected.

Jerking/jumping while driving


An automobile's ignition system may work fine while idling but fail during acceleration. Problem areas to be inspected include the spark plugs, spark plug wires and vacuum hoses. Car owners should look for spark plugs that are covered in oil or sediment or damaged, spark plug wires that have damaged insulation, and vacuum hoses that are unplugged or leaking. Fuel Problems
  • The use of a fuel additive that contains both fuel injector cleaner and water remover can fix minor problems due to water in the gas and fuel injector clogs. A fuel pressure gauge can also be used to test the injection system to assure proper pressure.
While most acceleration problems are likely caused by problems with the plugs, wires or fuel, a variety of sensors and other components can cause similar problems. a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ) will cause causes transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, and surging while going down highway.
good-day ! check and or clean maf sensor if need be. you can by the maf sensor cleaner at most auto parts stores.
