Not all hdi injectors are the same and there are some tricks to replacing the injectors so be careful as you can cause saver damage to your engine if not done correctly.
as the other gye said it may be a turbo pipe but Peugeots being Peugeot it could be any thing your best bet is take it into a dealer and get them to put it on the PPS to diagnos it properly

Hi, this problem could be valve stem oil seals these are cheap to buy but will require the top half of the engine been stripped and rebuilt.
If the car has a turbo then you might find that its just a turbo pipe split this is often the case on most cars that have turbo as your is diesel then you should have a turbo. This would be my first choice to get looked at as usually its just a pipe to the turbo has split and this causing the problem your having. Replacing this should not cost to much as it is common problem so look at this first.

Worst case it could be the turbo needs replacing but getting a garage to check this for you is the best bet but hopefully it is just a split pipe going to the turbo.
Most diesel cars with your problem that i have worked on is usually one of the pipes for the turbo has a split in it so replacing this will solve your problem ok.
let me know if you have any problems or questions and ill be glad to assist you ok.

Ford transit 110 T280 I've back smoke on excellaration and loss of power on inclines; could it be the EGR valve at fault ; also have management warning light on.?


Needs piston rings. You have lost compression so you are losing power. The oil is getting pasty the worn rings and entering the combustion chamber which would explain the black smoke and loss of power.

Reason for loss power up hills 1994 f150 5.0 liter


sounds like either a vacuum leak (check the bottom of the "tomatoe juice can" for starters) or a bad or plugged egr valve or egr solenoid.
check engine lite refers to emissions probs only...most likely egr or vac leak. Had the same prob on my 95 5.0 f150...needed new can and egr valve.

Loss of power on hills


Hi, i think i answered you in another post.
If not then the likely cause of your problem is turbo related the most common cause is one of the pipes going to the turbo has a small split in it causing this problem.

Nearly all the diesel turbo cars with your problem usually means a pipe needs replacing for the turbo this will need to be checked as it can be difficult to find the damaged pipe because they work under high pressure so actually seeing the damaged part can be difficult so check properly.
If you are unsure then get a garage to check this as they will know the fault and will have a good idea exactly which pipe is damaged.
Worst case of this will be that the turbo needs replacing but this is in the most severe of cases the turbo can blow if the pipe has been damaged for to long as it will be working under the wrong pressure.
What happens is when you acelerate the turbo builds up pressure giving you more power when you need it but when the pipe becomes damaged this pressure is lossed and you then lose power and will cause black smoke coming out of exhaust.

Hope this is some help to you but if you have any problems or questions then give me a shout back and ill be glad to assist you further ok
