2004 Peugeot 307
Peugeot 307 SW HDI 2litre
Audible 'beep' sounds. Display says 'fuel filter blocked' and a small icon appears and stays on showing what looks like an engine. If the engine is then kept under load, especially up an incline, another audible 'beep' occurs and the words 'anti pollution fault' are displayed. The engine revs are then limited to approx 2900 RPM max. This situation is temporarily resolved by stopping, turning off the engine for a couple of minutes then restarting. Not always possible. The problem still exists even after the fitting of a new filter. The car has been regularly serviced and neither the garage where the car was purchased nor Peugeot Madrid has been of any help at all. The guy at the garage going as far as to tell us that we had, unfortunately, purchased 'a potato' (Spanish equivalent of a lemon).
