Peugeot 307 2.0 HDi 110PS - EGR Issues at 260,000 miles - Essex Mav

OK, I am in deep depression as my beloved Peogeot 'Brian' has had to be retired. I have done a glorious 260,000 miles in the old chap, without any issues. He is serviced every 9k on the button and most miles are motorway.

A few weeks ago as I pulled into my road I knew something was up straight away when he refused to accelerate away in 2nd....I feared the worst.

A quick check under the hood reveled nothing obvious, no pipes off or anything, so I borrowed an OBD, and got the codes. All 3 pointed to EGR issues. I have scoured the You tube of video to try and locate this part, but wondered if this was really my power loss issue.

After such high mileage it could be anything I guess, but I would love to find out what exactly so he could carry on his journey through time ! I have codes and photos if anyone out there is free to help with advice?

Thanks in advance

Find a good independent workshop, get them to fit a new EGR - you owe the car that!

If only there was a decent trustworthy garage around my area - been bitten so many times this one makes me quake ! As A newbie to the forum did I post this as a message and not in the forum?

There's some cowboys on that list among the good ones - in my area anyway! Far too many on that list with only one recommendation.

You would do better to take it to a diesel specialist rather than a garage, they usually know what they are doing.

The 2.0. 8 valve Hdi is probably the best engine ever made and with the servicing you have given it could be good for 300 - 400k miles or more so if the rest of the car is OK its well worth spending some money.

The EGR on this engine is vacuum operated only, and there's no feed back. The valve is a complete pig to change as it's on the back of the block tight up against the firewall. The vac solenoid can set fault codes - fortunately this is easy to change. Post up the codes and I'll have a look at them to see what it's pointing to.

The EGR valve is probably sticking open which would be the cause of your poor performance. As said in the previous post, the EGR valve is very difficult to get to. It will involve dropping the subframe and supporting the engine. If you are going to do the job then clean out all the air intake system and EGR pipe. I would replace the EGR valve as a matter of cause rather than clean it, simply because it's so inaccessable.
