Hello Michele,
Thank you for your full description, I wish others were more like you!
Although your light is going out all your Glowplugs/heater plugs may not be operating leavin just one two making it hard to start.
Do you feel up to testing them as this will need a few tools and a Multi meter??
If you do then you'll be coming back to me, if not pop into a quality repairer and tell them you feel maybe two of your heater plugs are burntr out so a test is required? or go for the throat and have the lot replaced as they don't live forever. There a 4 of them.
I hope this helped? if so press the Blue button or Appraise My FREE Effort, Thank You!

It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

did you try the spare key? are you sure it is an immobilizer light? what does the warning light look like, can you describe it? replacing the battery in the key will not help as it is not needed for the recognition of the key(this is done by an induced current).

Hi my peugeot 308 is using more oil than usual and the oil pressure warning sign keeps coming on but no obvious signs of an oil leak

After cooling, check the radiator water for signs of engine oil. Oil can be forced into the water cooling system through faulty seals or gaskets.

I've got an Peugeot 308 1.6hdi which when on a long journey comes up with low oil pressure stop had the car checked by a mechanic and he said he can't physically find anything wrong with it the oil pr

Engine is not getting enough oil to build the pressure. Either downpipe in sump is partially blocked or the oil pump is not good or oil filter is congested. I once opened the sump and guess what " Sump pipe was just screwed with one screw with a gap on other side causing the oil not being sucked properly". There is a pressure tester method just google it and try to find the bad oil circulation point.

Peugeot 308 low oil pressure and loss some power

Low oil pressure starts from oil pump sounds like its blocked either in the pump filter or galleries in the enging. I would first call the dealer and check what filter system is on the pump which may require removal of the sump to replace or clean.

I would certainly not use a car with this problem as it could well cause engine failure. Try a good quality flush first and run the car for 20 minutes minimum on tick over. Remove and put a good quality oil in and do another oil change again if required a month later with a flush to make sure the gunge is out.

If this does not help do an oil pressure test and see what it comes out at checking the manufacturers recommended pressures. If you have changed the oil, pump filters and done a second oil change and still get low pressure then you may well have a faulty pump.

I would also check the oil pressure switch to make sure it s not giving a false reading. The loss of power sounds like Turbo failure and again dirty oil to the Turbo oil feed pipes could be restricitng flow, hence why regular flushing oil and filter change is important.

I would get the Turbo checked out same time as on this model it could well be a Turbo and engine change if its gone that far due to the metal particles contaminating the engine.

Peugeot 106 warning & oil light comes on when car is started & whilst driving turning corners?

Check the oil level on the dip stick in your engine. If the dip stick indicates you are low on oil add the proper oil for your make and model.

Engine warning light on dash

Possible that the oil pressure is low , the oil level is low or the oil pressure switch has failed.
Check level of oil, check for pressure of the oil to the sensor -swap and test and finally check for error codes to confirm the case.

I have a peugeot 308 2008 1.6 VTI sport, the car is new to me and I have had some problems initially with the car which the dealer sorted out. I have had it back a week and now the oil light flashes...

if the oil light flashes then you have one or both reasons, the oil level and the oil pressure
the oil level indicates the oil quantity in the oil sump, you can check it manually by means of oil gauge and do not trust electronic oil gauge, it could be damaged becuse of high temperarture of the oil(by the way this could be your problem)
the other case is the oil pressure and you have to check the oil filter.
any how let me remind you that 308 is equiped with multifunction display, so there should be a warning message about this fault

Just had my oil changed and the check engine oil level low light is coming on . But checked it and it's not low , just on the full mark . It comes on everytime I restart the car . how do I fix that ?After...

You have to reset the check engine oil level light. The light is just a 3 month reminder that lets you know when to change your oil. You have to hold the reset button on your dash for more then 5 to 10 sec. The procedure is in the owners manual that came with the car.

Car low on oil and motor wont start. It cranks over but wont start. No oil lights have come on on dash board so had no idea it was low on oil;

Some cars, not sure about yours had a switch on the fuel pump, if the oil was low, they wouldn't start. Get the oil back up the re and see what happens. The oil sending switch must be for pressure and not level, it will register 60 lbs pressure with only 1 qt of oil in there, try it, hope it helps.

some cars with oil level warning light on, it doesn't mean that its only reading the engine oil level is low, sometime the transmission fuid too. Did you check your transmission fluid if it is ok or not? try to check and let us know, ok.
