How do I fix catalytic converter fault and antipollution fault?


You must run tests to determine if the converter is bad, or if you have some other issue. Use a vacuum gauge to determine if exhaust is restricted.

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.

Bmw 3 series electrical faults


Hi sounds like the same problem I had crankshaft sensor my battery light came on and the engine would cut out sometimes would start straight away other times took 5mins to start again.
But would get a garage to check fault codes costs about 40pound but could save you 100's as it may be a faulty alternator/battery.

What is the antipullution fault on peugeot 406?


If you drive your car more likely for short distances then the regenerating process couldn't be started to clean the cloged particulate filter and finally your car's ecu show you a antipollution fault. Drive your car to a motorway or dual carriage way.

The temperature meter should be showing above 70°C when you begin with this process. If this is the case, slow down place 3rd gear and drive at 3000-3500 rev /min to let the ecu to kick the regeneration process. Keep driving car 15 minutes in this state will be enough to solve this problem.
