    2.0 HDI 90 HP does no go off after starting the engine.

    Take the car to a dealer as soon as possible and get them to plug their
    diagnostics into it, which will produce a readout of the part at fault. I
    have had a tremendous amount of trouble with my 306 HDi and the
    engine-management lamp coming on, same problem as yourself, generally no
    performance problems.

    Umm sorry but I ASKED once for the readout cos they had my car about 5
    times for the same darn thing. They said that it doesnt tell them
    exactly what the problem is, moreover it tells them a fault code which
    gives an indication of what the problem is. Oh, and if your car is
    under 5 years old then it will probably cost you about £50.

    I
    You dont always get performance problems but after a period of time
    you get one large sod off problem as a result. Talking from
    experience here!

    Im not saying dont take it to a pug dealer, but be aware that its not
    cheap and that they wont always be able to trace the fault first time
    which means more than one trip and a hole in your wallet!
