SOURCE: my car says 'anti pollution fault' when I start it

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.

See if you can get the codes read, your model often has a particulate filter and all that entails but not allways on the 2,0 HDi, it seems too much of a coincidence to not be connected.

My SLK 280 2006 is showing the Check engine light ON and the gear not changing neither by automatic drive or tiptronic drive. checking by computer fault log it shows first the O2 sensor malfunctioning. I...

replace the speed sensor as it controls the shifting of the transmission. When replacing any units the fault s will continue to reappear unless you have the CPU reset by a fault code reader.

Engine warning light , antipolution problem

The engine warning light is indicating there is a fault with one of the multiple electronic systems your car. Your car's computer (PCM/ECM) monitors continuously all functions of the engine and emission systems. You'll need to take it to a shop to have the stored fault code(s) retrieved to start a diagnosis, and it could one, or several codes.

My 2008 envoy just had new tires put on and as I was driving down the highway my stabiltrack light and abs light came on. I'm a 100 miles away from home and its a Sunday so service shops aren't...

I would check the wheel nuts are tight as you should recheck nuts after driving when any wheel work is done.. As the two systems are sometimes connected by the single sensor it is possible that a wire has been disturbed when the work was being done. It is hard to say yes to your question but if you drive sensibly ,at a reasonable speed and there are no obvious faults or adverse feelings while driving It would be alright to continue on your way. The lights are telling you of a possible fault found by the cpu and is alerting you to possible danger if you continue to drive.

Laguna mk2 1.9 diesel suffers occasional loss of power

with diesels there is an injector control module that sometimes causes problems
possible bad harness connections , ground wires so for starters I would be looking in that area after I ran a fault code check
anything that pits on an engine light and restricts rpm should leave a code

Engine light on andcar missing

Hi there:
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Where is the anti pollution filter situated on a peugeot 207

There is no such thing.

If youre refering to Antipolution warning coming up on display:

Sadly a common fault with 207s is random fault warnings coming up on the display.

If it's a real fault, then you should notice a fall off of performance and this indicates a trip to your garage to get it fixed.

If the fault comes and goes, or there is no loss of performance, do what most 207 drivers do and ignore it !

I have a antipolution fault on my peugoet 406. whats a quick fix

The anti-pollution warning message is a blanket warning for any fault that has been recorded in the engine ECU, to get any bearing on the cause you will need the fault codes read to at least get you on the right track.
it may be as simple as replacing the air filter , make sure you get the one with the plastic at the bottome , or it could be something more like the fuel additive system  which may be costlier.
you really need to get it hooked upto a diagnostics computer and check the error codes its returning.

dont worry though as this is a very common problem with the newer peugeots and is not serious in most cases, in the serious case the car will go into "limp home mode" a severe loss in power if that is occuring then you need to get it to a garage asap

let us know how you get on and please rate 

Good luck
