Question about 2006 Peugeot 207 1.4
Hi there, i have recently purchased my car with 58000 miles on it & have noticed a little blue smoke on cold start. It doesn't do it all the time. Some days there is nothing & some days there's a puff of smoke. Whenever it does smoke,it clears very quickly & runs fine.I have been told by a mechanic that it could be the valve stem seals :(. I still have a little bit of warranty left & the dealer is trying to fob me off with some **** about the glow plugs being faulty. Please could you help ? kind regards Richard
If it is using no more that a quart of oil per 3,000 miles it is normal. If using more that that, the engine is likely worn. You can have a mechanic perform both a wet and dry compression test , on you engine, to know for sure. The cost should be about the cost of a tune up. The spark plugs could be changes at the same time. if they show wear.

SOURCE: starting problem
If its a 2005 it will be common rail, so you have to be carefull when dealing with this engine. The common rail has extremely high pressures which can harm you, also the fuel injectors are capacitor discharged and are high voltage. Now thats aside, look at the high pressure pump at the front of engine. If the code on it ends in 018 then its fed by an electrical fuel pump. These fuel pumps can fail. if it has another number then the HPP draws its own fuel. The symptoms are air ingress into the fuel lines, causing the fuel to run back to the tank. Its probably worse in cold weather due to the contraction of the fuel pipes in the cold. Check all fast fit connections for security. A trick is to put grease on the connections, it wont last long but might give you an idea where the leak is.

I too have a Peugeot 206 - and has given me nothing but grief - mostly electrical.
The fact you are suddenly losing systems, and draining battery points to a short in the wiring loom - which is a common fault on pugs.
I advise you trace the wire from the rear heater to the fusebox (it's labeled in there). Use a cheap multimeter - pull the fuse out and check the wiring both to the heater (resistance to good earth) and the supply( check for 12V )with the switch on. You may end up undoing the loom cover in the engine bay - but check your feet area first for any damaged wires. Try wiggling the loom with the ignition switch on and in neutral to find the problem. Often just taping it up properly solves it.

could be the starter or clogged fuel filter. If the starter is turning over then my first check would be the fuel filter.
