Based on our experiences just before Cathy bought it I would say one of the
injectors has gone to the pictures[1]. Just bear in mind that the ECU lies
about which one it is.

Could be a multitude of things. It needs its bumps felt really. What was changed in the service?

The lovely Claire's car (a 206 aka "the rollerskate") has an
intermittent engine warning light on fault. It comes on
a) under acceleration (usually from about 4k revs)
b) because it can
c) because it doesn't like me (possibly because I've called it a rollerskate).
these are all intermittent.

the garage had a look and plugged it into a magic box. Their prognosis
was an intermittent short in the fuel injection somewhere. They
reckoned the cost of sorting was much more than the value of the car
and just to live with it.

you can clear it by turning it on and off twice in quick succession.

What engine might help!

Other than that I'm going to suggest it's because it's French.

Peugeot [206CC] Symptoms

Posted by "Iline, Mark" <m.iline-at-ucl.ac.uk> on 31 December 2014 | 0 Comments

Hi,

Anyone recognise these symptoms ?

In short, we have a warning "Anti-Pollution Fault" showing; but there's mor=
e detail.

This happened a couple of weeks and a few 30 mile trips after a minor servi=
ce; and about 5 miles after filling up.

The car was running fine, Cathy made a sharp uphill turn in 3rd, which it w=
as a bit unhappy with (no surprise); then almost immediately waited (idling=
) while I went into a shop. On pulling away, the warning appeared for the f=
irst time, and the engine was slightly rough.

Parked outside the house, and the roughness was intermittent to non-existen=
t. There's an orange warning ('engine notification') on the dash which is p=
ermanent.

Another 30 mile trip the next day. Warning still there, but no sign of roug=
hness until we got home and parked.

[At that time] car seems to idle fine (~800RPM), but above that is slightly=
rough until ~1500RPM, when it seems fine.

I'd kind of hoped that a run might clear whatever was up [there are no dire=
'stop now' warnings]; but that doesn't seem to be the case - though I do s=
uspect that the dash warning latches on until cleared. There are also some =
concerns about shagging the 'cat'.

Any quick guesses as to what it's likely to be ? [I expect we'll be heading=
back to the service place, but it's good to have an idea what's going on.]

Haven't had time to think about this but it would have to be Roy Plomley.
And I wouldn't just pick 8 twenty-minute prog tracks. :-)
But of course they should mark significant events in your life,
rather than just what you listen to most often. And after a few years
with only those to listen to, you would grow to hate them.

Me too, and party because they used it as the theme for a TV series about
the holocaust.
There is a classical guitar arrangement of it which is good but not a patch
on full orchestra.
