For the anti pollution fault there should be another reservoir on your car somewhere near the fuel tank cap maybe or it may be located under the back seats somewhere you need to check the fluid level and top up if nessessary then you need to take car on a long drive to get it very hot to clean the dpf not short stop and start drives you need to be on a motorway doing a good speed without stopping for at least 50 miles or so

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.

Citroen c crosser anti pollution light


Anti pollution light, I never heard of a Check engine light being called that.
Read on please.

Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Anti pollution system fault light is on.


If the Anti pollution warning light is coming on the possible causes are endless. If the car is driving ok then that is a good sign, but please remember that modern management systems can mask problems quite well. The safest advice is to get it looked at and see what fault codes are appearing and then a diagnosis can begin, as leaving it is not going to be a good thing, it can go from a minor problem to more serious issues. At least the light is not flashing, which usually means an emission compliance problem and even more serious, but even so I would advise protecting your vehicle by getting it checked out as soon as possible to avoid potential damage.
----------
A fault in the ignition can cause an engine misfire and unburnt fuel gets into the exhaust causing the anti-pollution light to be triggered.

Check the ignition system for signs of damp or loose connections.------- I suggest get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free to get car scanned.This will show the problem if you receive the error code.-------- Thanks.Helpmech.
