Question about Peugeot Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I've got a Peugeot 407 HDi 2005 now with a power loss, particularly obvious in low rev range, blowing black smoke - looking like excessive fuel input. Also, it is using a huge amount of fuel.

I've changed all the fluids, added injector cleaner and about to change the fuel filter. It doesn't appear to blow smoke without any load. It is also having trouble deciding when to change gears - presumably because the power curve is not what it should be. The symptoms dont see to match a blown turbo. It might be a sensor error?

It could be anything but checking one by one following parts may resolve power loss issue:
Blocked diesel fuel filter
Blocked particulate filter
Defective high pressure fuel sensor
Defective high pressure fuel pump
Defective injectors
And in worst case cylinder head gasket is leaking.

Is it a diesel. If so it could be the particulate filter blocked, or it could be a failed fuel pump or something internal of the pump, or if a petrol it could be a failed catalytic converter, undo the exhaust and see if that changes, if so then look closely at your exhaust.

Testimonial: "It's a diesel. Apparently all the sensors are working properly, but it's not getting any boost. I'm told the turbo has likely failed. Does a turbo replacement on a 407 HDi require the engine to be removed?"

    Is the pump a VE pump or is it a common rail setup?

  • Craig Wilson Jan 04, 2015

    It sounds very much like the govener plate inside the pump!

  • Craig Wilson Jan 10, 2015

    You shouldn't need to remove the engine to do a turbo change

SOURCE: Fuel filter

There is no need to change it frequently. If there is a loss of engine power or if throttle cuts out then may be its the time to change fuel filter. It is recommended by peugeot to change fuel filter (but depends on fuel purity) after every 36000 miles.

You can clean it yourself
Dipp the whole filter body in carosine oil tank and leave it in there for about 20-30 minutes
Pour some petrol in filter with the help of plastic piped and apply a slight air pressure (use a piece of pipe to blow) in the reverse direction (marked with arrows) of fuel supply to clear residue and heavy oil composite that clogged in filter.
Repeating the cleaning process 2-3 times will clean the filter to reuse it without the need of a new one to buy.

SOURCE: peugeot 407 2.0 hdi lots of black smoke when you

The reason for the black smoke is that it is not getting enough air to burn the fuel completely.It could be a blocked air filter,obstruction in the air intake system,blown turbo,hole in tube between intake manifold and turbo,or a fault with the fuel system and injectors.

Before we do anything else lets do a fuel pressure check to make sure the pump is a-ok as well as the fuel pressure regulator. Your gonna need shop manual for this as well as a fuel pressure tester. If all checks out then move to the Turbo code.
Turbo code looks like the waste gate is stuck open and your not building the boost. Do a visual inspection look for any signs of overheating and bearing wear. Check or change oil as needed.
With regards to the Mass air flow I believe you have to replace it. Keep in mind this thing might be the root of you whole problem.
I strongly suggest you use the shop manual for the codes you got. it will make this repair a snap.

Peugeot 407, 2.0 litre diesel, 05,loss of power/air surge heard


I am not familiar with the 407 but I would think it is a HDi, if so what you describe is an air leak from a pipe from the pressure side of the turbo, I have had this on a Saab, in that case there was an over pressure switch under the dash and the pipe fell off. Look at the top of the engine, on the inlet side there will be a pipe from the inlet trunking or manifold, it should (maybe with a tee piece in there) go through the bulkhead

Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
