Low oil level in the sump and low coolant level in the radiator
could be excessive oil i the transmission
run the fault codes to determine other failures

Testimonial: "thanks for the quick response. have checked all those and all ok. recently had the timing chain replaced and now it runs at higher temps. AL"

    the timing chain comment did not figure in the original question
    valve timing is important as it also controls the length of time that the combustion runs for in a cylinder
    so run the fault codes and check for cam position actuation operation
    recheck the timing because it the heating problem was not evident before the chain change but was after , then the timing is in question

Hi I'm having this message, 'low oil pressure' when temp go to suitable temperature my car Peugeot 407


The engine bearing clearances expand with heat which, if excessive, will lower the oil pressure. The spring in the pressure regulator in the oil pump will cause the pressure to drop for the same reason. A partially plugged oil intake screen will work in conjunction with the oil pump to cause it too.

You need to have an OBII scan done (fault scan). Scan will identify what sensor triggered light. It may or may not be "critical" but it's worth investigating before it gets worse and causes more damage.

I own a peugeot 307 hdi (02) my problem is that when I'm in 1st,2nd and 3rd gear In get a terrible rattle. I think it's the gearbox either it needs oil or there is a fult however fourth and fifth gears are...


Hi!

I own a Peugeot 307 SW 1,6 hdi 2004 which I bought a month and a half ago. It all started with an increasing rattle and sometimes "singing" noise from what i presumed was the gearbox (it`s a manual) and perhaps a bearing problem. At the same time (a week after i bought it) I noticed a small oil leak from beneath the car. After a short examination at the dealer`s we found that there actually was a leak from the gearbox. I got it sorted out and refilled as much as 1,8 l of gear oil (which had leaked out). After that the car works fine, except from a tiny rattle/ singing from the gearbox, especially in combination with gear shifting. I am now concerned that the whole gearbox is going to break down. In case it does, I hope it will happen before 22nd of February (my warranty runs out by then). Glad to hear if you find a solution to your problem, it may have some similarities to mine. PS I`m from Norway, but this or similar problems are not being discussed on Norwegian websites or forums. DS
