    Default mute xantia series 1

    My 1993 Xantia automatic (ZF) hatch has recently dispalyed the engine managment icon on the dash, especially when operted under load (e.g. making a prolonged steep climb). It also pings under load, despite being run on ULP98.

    Yesterday I took it to a reputable independent Peugeot specialist in Adelaide who was unable to communicate with it. I understand the Series 1 Xantia is electronically less complex than the Series 2, but are there known difficulties in communicating with the electronic bits needed to interrogate the basic faults described above?

    Can anyone help with possible solutions.

    Regards,
    Chris

    It can be, that the aftermarket "30 pin" Lexia connector is not making good contact with the diagnostic socket.

    How is the temperature reading when it pings?

    Simple things first. Could it have been mistakenly filled with E10 or ULP Standard ? If not, try filling with 98 / 100 from a different servo.. No joy ? Then I'd suspect the antiknock sensor, but I don't know where it is on the Xantia, presuming it does have one .
    Failing that, a timing problem, maybe related to belt jumped a tooth or crankshaft / camshaft pulley moved.
    Good hunting. Hope it's the fuel !

    Thank you for your suggestions and comments, addo and Richard
    1. I'll query the mechanic about the "30 pin" conncetion
    2. Temperature isn't excessive when it pings
    3. Definitely no E10 or ULP 91 (or even 95)
    4. The mechanic suggested I try BP or Shell ULP98. I mainly use BP, but sometimes Caltex - which I gather is a no-no, but I thought it ran better on one particular fill of Caltex 98
    5. I'm not sure whether the S1 Xantia has an anti-knock sensor
    6. I'd have thought if it was one tooth out there would be more problems than just pinging. Would it run reasonably well one tooth out on the cam pulley? One tooth out on the crank pulley would surely create mayhem?

    Further comments or clarifications most welcome.

    Regards,
    Chris
