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.

SOURCE: hi my renault megane scenic has the engine light

Hi i think the problem is one of the coils ( very common on renaults ).
The shaking is the engine missfiring.
Because of the missfiring the emissions are not correct which brings on the engine light.
If you are able to get a diagnosis ( code reader ) done on the car it will tell you which coil is gone
I hope i have been of some help to you

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.

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.
