    The oil leak around the filter housing might be the sealing ring inside the cover assuming it has one fitted or even the housing has been cross threaded when repalced after a filter change ? The problem regarding the ECU is that each one is configured to the individual car so I'm wondering if...

    A lot of white smoke ? you can get a lot of "steam" & water trickling form the tailpipe as the engine warms up especially after the cars been standing for a while which may be due to atmospheric condensates Fuel economy could be a few things ?

    If your getting oil on the auxiliary belt you just might have crankshaft oil seal failure as its recommended they are renewed with the timing chain cassette system & also you have to clean the seal housing as there can be absolutely no crap left in the aperture before the new seal is inserted

    Oil feed pipe feed to the Turbo has been known to fail at the Banjo coupling on the block I believe the seals are usually causing the oil to escape if it is that causing the issue the you will lose a fair amount over time I changed one on a 207 GT convertible once are they a real pain but you...

    Turbo issue

    Take out & check the Turbo Diverter valve charger located under the Turbo housing if the rubber seal has any tears inside this will affect the Turbo operation & cause that lovely Engine Fault repair needed light to shine away all day ..If its gone or suspect make sure the replacement is the...

    That code P0016 = Camshaft position correlation bank 1 Sensor A is a generic code on most if not all manufactured cars but if the car is running fine with no check lights then it would point to the sensor being damaged or as I explained before the engine has had Oil issues

    If the oil is like a thin slime check for a breather hose leak it may be blowing out oil mist somewhere these are tricky because if you clean up the engine then drive off again as you get a vortex of Air under the bonnet this can act as a spray gun throwing up oil residues across the engine

    Why not take a plug out now & check for your own reference guides? Apparently NGK ILZKR8C have been used in the R with no issues showing so I would guess you can put in NGKs

    Error code 0015

    I would imagine there is not much difference as when the car is fired up the oil is sprayed under pressure right through the engine but with direct injection engines the oil deteriorates very quickly & this is what causes most of the damage to the chain etc that is why I have never took any...

    I find that odd unless Peugeot are making their own? Basically you have the Prince Engine so therefore it should be compatible to put Bosch Platinum/ Iridium or NGK Iridium I put the NGK iridium in a 200 GT & have had no issues there is nothing to stop you buying a service kit bits & getting a...
