These motors and some other models with the same system always give problems .Havent done one myself as yet but other mechanics have that i talk too and if this is a diesel which has this system then you remove the particle filter on the exhaust system and make a rear box to fit type job and the sensor you disconnect and solder a resistor of around the 10.000 ohm mark across the sesnor wires to make the computer think all is well .Depends on the year though as to weither this will work satisfactory as a 53 plate sounds misteriously like some sort of secret code to me .Just noticed it says petrol 16v Hmm have to think again here as no idea with this one only ever see a diesel variant but if the cap fits so to speak have a look to see if has got a filtering out exhaust system if not then sell it quick and buy a ford or a VW

yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

Probably a short brush in the alternator, if you can find a specialist auto electrician it is possable to replace the brush/control pack but most places want to stripe you for an exchange unit.

I've got a citroen Dispatch 1.6 diesel 07 plate the engine management light has come on and it saying depollution system faulty how can I fix this


I am guessing but it could be the particulate filter is sufficiently blocked to cause exhaust back pressure to become excessive.

If this is the case the car will need the solvent reservoir topping up and diagnostic equipment using to initiate a cleaning cycle.

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.
