Booked in for Monday. Hopefully it's a quick, cheap fix and the first thing the code reader finds. I really don't want to be in and out of the garage constantly messing around for ages with mounting bills or I'll quickly lose patience with it

If they use Peugeot specific diagnostics they should find the problem easily.

So... looks like:
- Some oil pump issue
- ECU software update recall
- timing chain

looking like about a grand's worth of work... :thumbdown:

I had a call from my garage aswell last tuesday saying that the car had 3 faults.

One was a cooling pump for the turbo that was not working at all apparently.

Second was a coil/ignition thing that had failed so the car only ran on 3 cylinders.

And then the timing chain rattled so they were gonna look into that someday now to see what's up with that. Haven't heard from them yet tho.

The service guy said he was gonna call Peugeot's "head office" or something to see if they were willing to pay for the timing chain issue thing but i really don't have any hopes for that, cause never in my lifetime have i seen someone paying for that kinda stuff if they didn't really have to.

Whole thing sounds terribly expensive to me and im not happy at all :(

Hi Peter, this is not just bad luck :eusa-think: who did the work for you? Your first timing kit should have been warranted for instance recently had my wife’s Mini Cooper S timing kit done which is the same engine and the parts were warranted for 2 years but this is a kit that should in theory last 100k but due to poor original design that no one will own up to pug/Citroen/BMW and unless your kit fails during the manufacturers warranty you haven’t got a cat in hells chance of any help from the manufacturer.
As long as you have ensured your oil level has not dropped to a critical level then there is no way your timing kit has failed again within 2 years.
I would suggest that it’s possible that not all the new kit was fitted the first time round and which has now failed, I know that early problems with the timing kit led to the replacement of only the chain tensioner but there is also an issue with the guides so you may have only had the tensioner changed first time round :eusa-think: this is a specialist job and I would only entrust to either a Peugeot/ Citroen/BMW specialist preferably one with some positive reviews.
I’ve found that most problems reported on the forum regarding timing kit replacement problems have been due to independent none specialist workshops doing the work.
A good specialist should be charging no more than £600 all in for the work including using genuine parts.

Hope this helps good luck with your repair.
