Question about Cars & Trucks
I bought a 207 sw 59 plate from a dealer. They had it back to change water pump. Now have a loud knocking lasts for 10 mins whenever I start up. I've told them and mentioned possible cam belt and the timing, they tell me its a chain not a belt. Another garage gave me advice that if they have changed water pump should have done the belt (or chain) then as not advisable to take off and put back on. Urgent advice needed don't know who is telling me what
You are have what is known as a dry tappet. last for 5-10 min on startup. now you can leave it or you can change the oil and filter. when changing oil I mean you use oil treatment first to remove the old oil deposits. then change the oil. the only other way is expensive removing the cam's that involve taking of the timing chain and other parts to remove the dry tappet and clean out the vaine. but usaly a good oil change will fix this problem..

Testimonial: "Thanks Russ tappits sounds correct I have seen people do oil changes for this problem but only comes back a week or two later. I did have a very small tapping noise, I had this on a previous peugeot too. It's the fact that immediately after they dropped it off 10 mins later I started the car and loud tapping noise nothing like the original tapping noise."

I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

usually you should do it for peugeot diesel at 122000 miles along with water pump and the tensioner roller that runs under the cambelt too. But to be on the safe side do it at 100000 and save the fortune.
It took me (DIY job) about 6-8 hours as i wanted to save 450 pounds.

your engine has a timing belt not a chain and the water pump is run by the timing belt,and when the pump is changed the belt should be too,it should run you about $300 if the job is done right with the pump,belt,idlers and tensioner if needed,hope this helps
