I'm not sure if your year is OBDII compliant or not (Pug left changing it right to the last minute).

"If" it's OBDII compliant, then why not just buy yourself an error code reader.

It's gotta make more sense than buying random bits.

Hi

I gave up Wednesday night and dropped it off at a local garage last night.
They are going to plug it in today and see whats up.
48 Diagnostic check plus their experiance seamed worth it in the end.

Nasher.

Well, in a way I feel better about not being able to fix it myself now.

The garage plugged it in today, cleared out all the fault codes, drove it round their yard and its full of fault codes again.
They've been trying different things and have now given up for the day.

The garage owner told me "it's personal now" and he's going to look at it tomorrow when it's quiet.

I should add that the garage is a friendly non-franchised set up with all the modern gear you could ask for, and has a very good trustworthy reputation in the local community.

Nasher.

Nasher,
it sounds like the demons may have escaped from your coilpack and contaminated the ECU

Mmm, thats exactly what I've been thinking.
The garage did say that all appeared well after they'd cleared the fault codes but hadn't re-started it.

Just have to wait and see now.

any news on the pukeup yet? Pukeups are a sore point at the moment.......
mates 206 got well and truly cooked, bought another engine, fitted it and it was a poor starter.........heaterplugs, went to undo heater plug and a piece of cylinder head holding the plug in fell away with jb weld attached
bought another engine because its quicker and cheaper than fixing them this too had a heater plug our which then snapped in the headhad to drill that out, it took an hour to get the injectors out to swap then for the new set, and to top it all off the the stop solenoid died and the pump was full of swarf so we had to swap that too. its all done now and going again,

last night he informes me the wheel bearing has gone. and the valve clearences have closed up so that needs re shimming
i really dont like french cars

The garage have today tied it down to a faulty injector, and are swapping it out for a used one they have on the shelf.
I'll be home too late tonight to collect it, but should be OK for tomorrow.

I did listen to each injector with a screwdriver and thought they were OK, but if thats all it takes I'll be happy.

Bad luck with your mates Pug, they say that Pug oil burners go on forever.

well at least they found the fault, strange though why would a faulty injector create so many fault codes? or were they all air fuel ratio related?
