SOURCE: my car says 'anti pollution fault' when I start it

If you drive your car more likely for short distances then engine will not get hot enough to start the regenerating process to clean the cloged particulate filter resulting in a antipollution fault.

Drive your car to a motorway or empty dual carriage way (best in nights). The temperature meter should be showing above 60°C when you begin with this process. Place 3rd gear and drive your car at 3000-3500 rev /min for 15 to 20 minutes to let the ecu to kick the regeneration process. Keep driving car for 15 minutes in this state will be enough to clean your catalytic converter and your problem will be solved. But if it doesn't then the problem is with your catalytic converter and more probabily you need to change it.

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.

You need to scan the engine management computer and read the fault codes. Based on that info you can begin the diagnosis and repair.

Peugeot 308 1.6vti petrol. i had the message stating check engine oil. so i topped up just an extra half litre or less, now straight away anti pollution fault came up? any help please


Check engine oil could of been triggered by a number of things. Putting in more oil is rarely a cure. You getting poor mileage when that light comes on is more of a clue. When car Computer has what can be many false readings caused by a sensor or a mechanical problem, the computer tries to fix the problem within the range of the sensors ability..i.e more gas or more air, advance timing... slow down water flow to raise coolant temperature. When the problem is beyond the sensors ranges, the computer will go into "limp" mode, which will let the engine run, but all the sensors are not engaged so efficiency is the last thing you will get. You need a real diagnostic apparatus hooked to your engine by a good mechanic, and see if the the compression ratio, valves, injectors etc. are running properly and that also your sensors are functional. Never trust theose handheld units to tell you the truth. They can't diagnose mechanical problems like a valve not closing or a broken ring etc.

Where is the anti pollution filter located in a peugeot 307 petrol


There is no such thing as an anti pollution filter. All modern cars have complicated pollution control devices on them, and unless you know what you are doing and have the specialised test equipment, there is little that you can do yourself. If there is a light on the dash, then you are going to have to take it to a Peugeot mechanic. They will be able to do a diagnostic test using a laptop and hopefully this will narrow the fault down. They will then be able to give you a cost estimate to repair it. It is unlikely you will be able to fix this yourself.

Where is the anti pollution filter situated on a peugeot 207


There is no such thing.

If youre refering to Antipolution warning coming up on display:

Sadly a common fault with 207s is random fault warnings coming up on the display.

If it's a real fault, then you should notice a fall off of performance and this indicates a trip to your garage to get it fixed.

If the fault comes and goes, or there is no loss of performance, do what most 207 drivers do and ignore it !

I have a antipolution fault on my peugoet 406. whats a quick fix


The anti-pollution warning message is a blanket warning for any fault that has been recorded in the engine ECU, to get any bearing on the cause you will need the fault codes read to at least get you on the right track.
it may be as simple as replacing the air filter , make sure you get the one with the plastic at the bottome , or it could be something more like the fuel additive system  which may be costlier.
you really need to get it hooked upto a diagnostics computer and check the error codes its returning.

dont worry though as this is a very common problem with the newer peugeots and is not serious in most cases, in the serious case the car will go into "limp home mode" a severe loss in power if that is occuring then you need to get it to a garage asap

let us know how you get on and please rate 

Good luck
