    hi! yes a car can run but you need to get it scanned at the workshop, then they can notify you the DTC

    The additive was supposedly in a tank requiring the removal of the fuel tank to re/fill, I then drove car but went into limp mode on the motorway

    Hi again, just been informed that there are two items that require fitting, firstly I think he said was the air mass meter which is showing faulty and secondly there seems to be a problem with the fuel cap,this he has said would probably get away with, another £200 to fix, so I have spent what the car is worth, what a waste and what a poor car, I will not touch. Peugeot ever again and will tell others, I would have been better of just scrapping it!

    Hi, just been to pick up car, garage had taken on test run this time, all light off but told me had to put in additive to eliminate part of the multiple problems they had found-should get myself a in car fault tester myself but are they any good, son-law-law, race technician for a local garage told me now that they didn't need to take out tank! No idea now? But car ok, for how long this time,in the lap of the gods??

    I previously have had several peugeot from the hot hatch then the 2 litre 406 then to this 307 when to go wrong it always seems to cost a lot more, more complicated than say a ford or even Japanese cars. I have had CoopersHillman Imp with twin we nerd, Escort RS 1600, several Peugeots, Vauxhall, Datsun,Nisssan,Ford Fiesta, seem to be associated with the older generation, the sedate driver-which I am not, have had this car down to Wales on Sunday and it performs well, 4000 in top gear

    Hi, Just had s word with garage who apologised as to the cost but it was a process of elimation as to ascertain the problems, until he had fixed one he couldn't fix the other, he said it also could have been more expensive, at least I have have new things added-How about those people who put petrol instead of diesel into their tanks??
