Hi all, I'm new to this forum and am really hoping one of you knowledgable fella's may be able to help/advise me with a problem I have with a 2003 peugeot 307 SW 2.0 HDi 110 (RHS engine).
I purchased this car about 8 weeks ago and it appeared fine at first, although i did think it was a bit sluggish (the car had been staning for approx 6 months, I thought it would improve with use), but as the next 2 weeks passed I noticed it was loosing coolant and was getting worse quickly.
It went to a garage local to me and was diagnosed as a cracked cylinder head. The head was replaced with a fully reconditioned one along with all nessasary gaskets and timing belt kit and coolant pump.
When i got the car back it drove much the same as before it was fixed (lacking power). The coolant loss was sorted though.
Over the next couple of weeks driving about it became apparant that it really was down on power.
It drives nice and smooth and reaches motorway speeds ok, it's just really sluggish, like the turbo just isn't working.
My renault trafic 1.9 dci 100 is much quicker and you can feel the turbo boosting in every gear........The peugeot is a bigger engine, bigger bhp and soo slow, you can't feel the turbo boosting.
The car went back to the garage who did the head replacement to try and find the cause of the low power, the garage did also agree that the car felt really under powered.
It has now had; New head, new timing belt kit, new coolant pump, new thermostat, new oil & coolant, new MAF (original seimens), new turbo vacuum solenoid valve, new recon turbo, new air filter, new fuel filter, new EGR valve.
The garage have also checked all turbo and vacuum hoses and say they are all good, they have cleaned the butterfly valve on the intercooler side of the inlet manifold and the DPF has been put through a forced regen process (via bosch KTS200) and it completed successfully.
There are no fault/warning messages on the dash display unit and no fault codes stored in the ECU, yet still it has no power.
Please has anybody got any ideas as this car has now cost me cosiderably more than it's worth and after having it 8 weeks it would be nice to be able to use it (it's still at the garage now).
Apologies for my first post being more of a novel
