Hi guys.....I have a peugeot 206 diesel convert able and last

Resolved Question:

Hi guys.....I have a peugeot 206 diesel convert able and last month engine started making a squeaking noise and lost almost all power. Then black smoke billowed out of the exuast. A mech said it's the turbo, so £498 later and a new turbo and now I have error message anti pollution fault and the power is still down. Now and again the power comes back but it's very inconsistent and at times dangerous. The rev counter only seems to go to 3000 and that's it. I've tried fuel cleaner and blasted down the m42 a few times but still no luck. Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Hi mike, since the turbo was fitted I've only tried fuel cleaner twice and blasted the car up and down the motorway. But when the turbo was fitted it had a full service, so I'm thinking it can't be any filters etc

Hello again -

Thank you for your reply and extra info -

Your symptoms at least would add up to exhaust - cat convertter contamination and / or failre..

When a turbo goes - and all the black smoke you mentioned come out of the exahaut - there is generally a great deal of oil goes down the exhaust - and of course this can clof the exhaust - as it dries when cooled and causes restrictions - and also, invariably damages the cat converter - that would cause your lacl of pwoer - and the Anti Pollution error / fault message -

So all things considerd - as above - that would be the area to be looking / investigating now - Any good garage with the right equipment should be able to quicly suss and sort that for you with theabove info now.

The first thing though to do is to have the fault codes reasd - see what they say -and then go from there per above.

Let me know if you need anything else -
