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.

SOURCE: catalytic converter fault, air pollution fault, power drop.

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Engine management light on and says de-pollution system faulty


Anon, sounds like it could be a misfire in engine, faulty plugs,coil,wire,injector, etc. can cause this. The codes will have to be scanned from cars computer by a good Technician, diagnosed properly and estimate repair.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Any body got ideas engine light came on with anti pollution warning light on my peugeot 308 diesel year 08 any suggestions please thanks Darren .


I have no clue about your car, but I did do a search for your problem and found this, I hope it helps you out.

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.

Would leaking exhaust cause engine light to come on, also car is saying anti pollution fault.


leaking exhaust should not cause lite to come on unless it is before the catalytic converter. the pollution fault could a small thing such as a lose gas cap, or hose of off the canister under the car.

Why is there an anti-pollution fault on first start followed by management light on?


It's not unusual for 207s to show the anti-pollution warning randomly. In my experience it isn't significant and you just learn to live with it, but as yours is consistently showing at start up accompanied with the engine management light, it maybe something more serious. If the car appears to be driving okay, then I would be inclined to ignore it, if not, you will have to have a Puegeot dealer put it on their computer diagnostic machine - pricey !

207s have a bad reputation for random fault indications as a whole (Google it), some of which seem to be ambient temperature related - my father's 207 randomly shows the air bag light on very hot days but this goes away after a few start/stop cycles and a drop in temperatures. Fortunately, his MOT is due in March so when it goes for an MOT the light is always off - air bag fault indication showing is now an MOT failure.
Some people wouldn't be happy driving with an air bag indication, or any other fault indication, showing even for a short period of time, so this is a personal decision as to what you do about it.

Depollution system faulty the engine is dead car want go


Is there any fault indication on the dash where the radio display is.
Anti pollution is basically citroens way of saying emissions system so it could be as simple as a loose emissions pipe but from what you say and the car does not run it could be your catalytic converter (part of the exhaust system) has failed causing the engine management system to cut in and protect the engine.
If there is no fault apart from anti pollution showing in the radio display find someone with a diagnostic machine to give you a better idea of the fault. Hope this helps a bit.
