307 SW 1,6 HDI 2005, Low temperature in cabin.

Discussion in 'Peugeot 307' started by Sophus Vørsing \(2670\), Jan 20, 2009.

  1. Engine temperatur is around 80 degrees Celcius, but the heater is not able
    to produce enough heat to keep a reasonable temperature in cabin.

    Are you having the same problem?

    Can anybody point me in the right direction?

    Blocked heater Matrix,
    pull off the pipes and flush it through, it will look like brown mud when it
    comes out.

  4. Is this the same as waterpump?
    How do i check this proberly? There are no coolingproblems in the summer, I
    presume that cooling would have been a problem if the pump didn't work?
    Have been checked and is OK.

  5. Is that that the same as the heater element in the cabin?
    I will try that, but the coolingfluid don't look dirty or unclear?

    Yes, the coolant can be clear, the sludge in the matrix / heater element can
    get quite solid so it will not flow into the cooling fluid.
    The blockage can stop the fluid flowing almost completely through the matrix
    / element which stops the heat getting through.
    I had the same problem once with a renault, if you can get a pipe off in the
    engine bay going into and out of the matrix / element and try blasting a
    hose pipe through it for 10 minutes or so. Worked wonder for my Renault.
    Good Luck

    I had a similar problem with my wife's old 106. I flushed the heater through
    with a hose pipe. The other end of the matrix/heater extruded a semi solid
    plug of brown gunk. Quite disgusting to look at as I'm sure you can imagine.

    When you refill the system make sure you use a header tank on the filling
    point and bleed the system properly.

    or just plain Jurassic:
    all words to describe me.
