Value hunterI spoke with many 307 owners about the various electrical faults, most had paid a wad of money for fault finding services and scans to get the fault codes.
The problem was, one fault code can have several meanings.
The gist of my 307 fault was that somewhere, air was getting into the system, only by chance did we find it.
I would advise visiting an old time mechanic, one that can diagnose problems, most garages today simply get a fault code reader on the job.
Good luck

Value hunterHi Duncan,

Have you had a trustworthy mechanic check your exhaust?
There was one possible option when I was looking around for an answer, bare in mind though, mine was cutting out revs, even when driving at 70mph!

There are sensors behind each wheel, which need the wheel taking off to get at, i was advised if it wasn't the exhaust to remove the wheel, clean the sensors then apply a tiny covering of vaseline to stop the sensors rusting.

In the end I got rid of the car, way too many probabal faults that "may" be to blame. More hassle than its worth.

sorry I cant be more help.

RobertI to have had this "Anti pollution fault" when i lost the little clip that retains the throttle cable to the sender throttle housing,i found that by slackening the cable slightly thus reducing the idleing revs cured my problem however like most engine managment systems now We are clearly reliant on expensive diagnostic advice that doesn’t always find the fault and there are many reasons why the "Anti pollution fault"warning light will be displayed

Value hunterAgreed Robert, the charges for diagnostics are rocketing and even then, there's often a number of faults possible from the same results, what chance do we have...

davei too have had the same problem i spoke to a time served mechanic he told me to flush petrol tank to rid it of any water build up never let petrol tank go below half 7 months now no anti pollutin light car now runs better than it ever has done. adding more or a higher octane fuel may appear to do the trick running the car at higher revs only worked short term. before you spend money give this a go it worked for me.

pauli just started getting this.i had an after market cat fitted 4 month ago last week this fault came up yet i lost no power at all car drove as normal (1.6 petrol)took it to garage had it put on comp and it was a cat fault was told theyd seen it before might be the cat is smaller than origianl 307 one.have read that i could take the sensor out of the exhaust system and secure it somewhere in the engine bay and block of the hole in the exhaust with an old spark plug this might cure it

John ChinnI have a Peugeot 206 2.0 diesel with this engine management light coming on, losing power problem and guess what? When the car went for its MOT in June the slightly corroded back box on the exhaust was picked up as "advisory" . In other words keep an eye on it as it is on its way out. I bet that is what's causing the problem. Anyway, needs changing soon anyway, so I may as well get and do it. Many thanks for this article by the way, hopefully it will solve my problem too.

toolboxI had the same problem after i got a 307 1.6 petrol Y-reg. The engine light came on with anti pollution fault on the display. I have filled it with BP unleaded and took it to the motorway. After 5-10 miles parked the car and started the engine again and the error message was gone. This happens with ESSO, Sainsburys, TEXACO petrol hence I avoid using any other petrol except BP and the problem is often kept at bay :) Hope this helps

****-
thechosenone77I have a 307 1.4 petrol 04 plate Peugeot. Last night I got a "Anti pollution fault" display. The way I rectified this was:

1) I sometimes let the orange light come on my fuel - DON'T do this! Always make sure there is sufficient fuel in you car. I topped the fuel up and the fault light went off.

2) I topped up the tank with some Reddex Fuel Cleaning fluid

3) I then took the car for a 30 min drive down the motorway travelling at approx 60 mph for the duration.

This seemed to make the vehicle less sluggish and run more smoothly.

This may not work for everyone but it's certainly worth a try ;-)

Lynda SeehausTo all owners of Peugeot 307cc and more. The Anti Pollution Fault is definitely a problem. I have had my 307cc for 3 years and have had the problem many many times. The cost of Peugeot and their electronic machine, still receiving the answer that nothing is wrong. I read a few articles on the internet, that the "best petrol" from BP would help. Well it did... so, I started to put half half in, due to the cost of petrol. Unfortunately, I must have put more normal petrol in and now have the "Anti Pollution Fault" showing, the car wouldn't drive at all, having to be picked up and car towed to the next garage. Now it seems to have more than one fault. Throttle aso... Such a lovely car, but I think its time to part.... Over that last 3 years its cost me more than 1500.gbp... Why doesn't Peugeot just recognize the fault and get it sorted. Drive safely.

Value hunterHi Lynda,
I agree, such a shame as our peugeot was very comfy - I'm often told that they are built for French people, who won't buy an uncomfortable car - but the problems were costing so much and happening so often, that we could no longer rely on it for longer journeys and we were shelling out for breakdown cover increased costs as well as repairs.

Thanks for posting

Nicola BillisHi, I've just diagnosed and rectified my 'antipollution fault' by googling the fault and being told to drive for at least 6 minutes at 50+ to enable a filter to clean itself! I think it's like having a regen but free!! And it worked!! Yaya!!
