L YoungMy peugeot 307 acting up with same faults - garage quoted £500 - £600 to rectify - but as you say intermittent lights, power etc.
Thanks for info - I now go armed to garage.

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

02/07/12 @ 14:09
Comment from: Value hunter [Member] Email
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

Comment from: thechosenone77 [Visitor]
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 ;-)

Comment from: Lynda Seehaus [Visitor] Email
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.

Comment from: Value hunter [Member] Email
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!!
29/10/12 @ 21:09
Comment from: Value hunter [Member] Email
Value hunterThat's great Nicola, glad you sorted it.
Lots of different faults show up under the anti pollution tag though.
In our case, it was the underside of the exhaust pulling air into the system, others report the sensors behind each wheel rusting, fluid top ups were needed, other exhaust faults, etc.

Always glad to hear of someone sorting something for free, well done!

Allan Doolamgood day evryone. i'm from trinidad in the caribbean and i have a 307sw.
i experienced the anti-pollution problem, however it was the cathalitic converter being clogged with resins form the exhaust gases. it seems that over a period of time, this will clog and will prevent proper exhaust flow, of which the oxygen sensor will fault. in our country, there isn't any strict laws concerning the use of the converter, so it took it off and custom a silencer within the same converter chamber. also, the muffler guy installed a special adaptor that keeps the sensor futher away from the exhaust gases so it would read the "unfiltered gases" passing it. pretty ingenius i must say. i still use my fuel injector cleaners and treatment regularly and i have no problems since a year now.

CHRISHi, my anti pollution fault signal came on this morning so i read some of the comments on this website and figured if its a blocked catalac why not jus get under there and give it a tap.after tapping the catalac with a hammer also around the sensors before and after the catalac converter i brought the car down gave it a few high revs,but the check engine light was still there so i tried a backfire by revving the car about 3000 revs then swithcing the car of for a split second then back on again then.wallah check engine light gone no anti pollution sign either.will update to let yous know how ots going in a weeks time.

sm24I bought my Peugeot 307cc just two weeks ago and put in supermarket fuel for the first time. the next day the anti pollution fault appeared. I took it to the garage to get a diagnostic and they found nothing wrong with it they resetted the light and touch wood it doesnt appear again. I asked them from reading reviews online if i should use red ex. they said no and told me to use cat-o-Clean to clean increase performance and also to clean out the catalyst converter. If the anti pollution fault appears again i Will just ignore it its just french cars being french cars! so dont worry about it if you have an anti pollution fault.

Comment from: Value hunter [Member] Email
Value hunterGlad you got some kind of understanding about your fault, but in my case, when the anti pollution fault came on, all power from the engine would be lost.
That's fine if you are about to go out or sat or cruising at 30mph, but when doing 70mph passing an wagon on the A1 with nowhere to go, it can be a tad hazardous.

derekI havea 2005 1.6 307 HDI. For some time I had anti-pollution warning on until jusg before xmas the engine managementlight came on and thr engine kept cutting out. I took the plunge and had the dpf replaced. After having it done, all was well for a about a month. 2weeks ago, the engine light came on, complete loss of power and now barely drives 10 yards before cutting out. I get the smell of fumed in the car. However, I can rev the car upto 5000 revs and it wont cut out. I was told that the cause is the hipressure fuel pump is breaking up causing the problem, but reading this thread im starting to think differently...can anyone shed some possible causes/solutions?

Is it possible I spiked the electronics when replacing battery?

BillPeugeot 307 1.6 HDI Deisel 05 plate. Car starts and runs no problem and can get up to 70MPH quite easily on motorway etc. BUT when it meets a gradient it simply loses power and on steeper hills sometimes need second gear. Depolution System Faulty warning light regularly comes on with engine management light. Sometimes they go off themselves. OH and the boot opens itself as soon as you start off! This has been going on for months now but I just put up with it 'cos I know it's gonna cost a fortune for dealer to put on their magic diagnostic to tell me nothing. Surely with ALL of these comments SOMETHING MUST be inherantly wrong with the car or it's syste, WHY has "Watchdog" not confronted Peugeot on this issue as obviously it is VERY common! We don't mind paying dealers to fix cars but paying them a fortune NOT to fix them is a real pain!

CraigPeugeot 307 2.0 petrol, we have just changed the full exhaust sensors and all, when starting the car the exhaust knocks off the under side of the car twice - took it back to garage and the mechanic said it was because it held on by rubber mounts, surely this should nto be happening. anti pollution fault came on after a few days so returned a 2nd time to the garage - found a slit in a pipe in the engine bay that is connected to some kind of filter. mechanic taped this up as we need to replace the pipe - fault cleared but has now reappeared - hopefully a new pipe will clear this fault for good as its now becoming a pain in the backside

JamesHi, I have a 307SW 56 reg. Before I bought the car there were many reviews about the electrical problems and the engines being fine. That aside, I just had a message 'depollution system faulty' pop up 30 minutes ago. My car cut out and shuddered to a halt. It wouldn't start again. I pushed it out of the way and waited a few minutes. After this it started again with the warning message appearing again.
I have now read a number of messages on various forums. This seems to be the most useful. Thank you, 'Value Hunter' for your initial contributions. I'm hoping that mine is the simple fault.
I will get back to the forum to inform you of my outcome as and when.
Am considering selling the car as the thought of spending a small fortune on turbo's etc. is not my cup of tea!

FroggatHi Guys
Just putting my penny's worth in
Had the dreaded anti pollution light come on.
As you have all done I scoured forums the length and breadth of the internet and came upon a load of possible causes and rectifications so I thought I would start with the simplest and work my way through the list
No. 1 and the simplest and cheapest
When your fuel runs low a vacuum can sometimes form in the fuel tank. To rectify remove fuel cap and replace . Vacuum gone
and so did anti pollution warning !!! Happy Days :-)
Not saying it will work in all cases but what do you have to lose ???

fatriffI bought a 2004 2.0 HDI Diesel Turbo about a month ago. The Flywheel went after only 42 miles!! "Private sale and nothing I could do because it was driving perfect during the test drive". New Flywheel and clutch fitted but I just cannot get to grips with the clutch pedal and the takeoff in 1st, it is rough nomatter how you do it. Went to turn on headlights the other night.. guess what? Yes they are both blown! To add to that I just discovered a bubble in the tyre wall (inside)! Which I had no chance of seeing during the viewing. I expect this car will end up costing £££ I didn't even know about the fuel additive system when I bought it and once you look it up you soon realise why nobody mentions it when it costs around £200 to top up a silly little tank with diesel additive and if your filter goes that's a ridiculous amount to replace.

Comment from: Geir Bolle [Visitor]
Geir BolleHi! I happen to be the lucky owner of a 307 sw 1,6 HDI 2004. I`ve experienced all kinds of troubles with this car during the last 4 years; broken turbo (twice), broken suspension (right front), changed all rods and joints front and rear, changed brake discs over all and, of course, the antipollution fault message (comes and goes). Over a period of time I also got exhaust fumes into the cabin, and sent the car to a mechanic for sorting out a possible leak from the exhaust system. But, the exhaust system had no leaks. So, where did the fumes come from? Well, there is a washer made of copper in connection with each diesel nozzle. These small copper rings had started corroding, and the engine started puffing exhaust fumes right into the engine room. When the engine was running while the car was standing still, these fumes were sucked in through the ventilation system. While driving, the airstream kept the fumes out. So, change the washers - problem solved. Now, I`m making the car ready for a 5000 km holiday driving through Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Worried? No, I`ve practically got a new car over the last 4 years:-)

Comment from: Zebedee [Visitor] Email
ZebedeeI have a 2004 307 HDI 2ltr (185k miles). I have replaced many parts over the past 7 yrs and it blows light bulbs from time to time which would appear to be a common fault. Yesterday the Anti-pollution Warning plus dashboard warning symbol came on after long run. I was pretty concerned because I have just spent a fortune 2 months ago replacing all the fuel injectors. The engine was misfiring and the diagnosis was the injectors were completely worn out. The engine head also had to be replaced because they were impossible to extract. During an oil change a couple of weeks ago, whilst on the ramp, it was noticed that the rear exhaust bracket had corroded. This was replaced but there has been a bit of rattling/banging ever since. Very interesting reading the posts above and it hopefully sounds like it is an exhaust issue and not the new injectors that is causing the warning message. Will post again when I have had it checked out.

JohnWe recently bought a 307 diesel 2008 estate and had many faults sorted out by the garage that sold us it.New clutch, new discs and pads all round, new radiator,new aircon condenser,tracking,new turbo.Then the dreaded antipollution warning keeps appearing and the car judders in low gears.New EGR fitted-solved the problem for a week,DPF forced regeneration gave two days of peace then antipollution reappeared.ECU adjusted as it should have been done previously.Car ok for two weeks now back to square one,antipollution warning and poor performance in low gears.Back to the garage yet again.My wife has never driven so many different cars(courtesy)in her life.We estimate that about £1500 has been spent on it since we bought it-fortunately not by us but under warrenty.I will post again as things develop!

Jessica XThanks for this article. It gave me hope when I had lost it and although this wasn't my problem I wanted to also share a positive experience.

I drive 1000 miles round trip every weekend to get home. Engine management light came on and car went into limp mode and this was horrible on the A66 and driving to and from Glasgow.

I panicked after reading everything on the web however when I took it into the garage the first thing they noticed was that the fuel injection seals were corroded. They fixed this. Light went off. Drove it out the garage and 2 miles up the road light came on. Diagnostics said EGR valve and sensor. They cleaned the sensor. Light went off but came on again and complained about boost sensor.

i had this replaced and - touch wood - car is running like a dream again.

Its done 150k and i've had to replace rear bearing, brakes, timing belt kit etc. Think clutch is going but on the whole I bought it to do the miles and it has done.

Many thanks guys

tonyI've had issues with the 'Anti-pollution' error message on my 306 for about a month. The car wouldn't go above 90kmh due to a lack of power.
The problem seemed to start after I put some poor quality petrol into the car.
After reading the comments here I bought a bottle of petrol cleaner/additices or something like that from my local car accessory store and added 1 Litre to my petrol tank and the car is back running smoothly. I hope this helps

Cyril CrewHi just want to share my story might help some suicidal peugeot owner. Had electrical problem since we got the car 307 1.4 petrol. Passenger door wouldn't lock sometimes. Then a few weeks ago she starting cutting out pulling away from traffic. Dangerous at lights. Top gears she was flying but driving slow was bad. Had the timing belt done as she was hitting 150000kms and a full service 550 the two. No change. Garage said might need new throttle body or cat converter. Wow another ball of money. I said no to this as a friend told me to try Dipetane in the petrol and run car at 2.500revs for twenty mins to clean the Cat. No joy. Renewed air sensors and coil pack. 100euro. Still no joy. Tried the garage where I bought the car and they told me the diagnostics had to be a peugeot dealer or wouldn't be right. First thing they did was iodate the ECU!!!!!! Bingo! That was it. Cars running like new. And all doors lock. Computers are great till they go wrong.
