    It probably uses the DW10 engine common to many Peugeot and Citroen sedans so search what similar issues people have with those cars.
    eg; Poor starting and error codes P1351 and P1351P - Peugeot Forums
    Same for code readers;

    The code is open circuit at the glow plugs. The software needed is Diagbox - not officially released, and available online only.

    there was a fuel filter in. the back when we bought the van and a full tank of diesel so I'm thinking the previous owner thought there was a fuel supply problem

    I have experienced this first hand on an expert van, White smoke and only ran for a second. Had a bent conrod. you could try a compression test. Most Dw10's are getting around with a few (if not all) dead glow plugs, won't cause the car not to run.

    Assuming the RHR motor - check your VIN for these letters - here is the location of the plugs.

    It isn't a cause of major trouble unless it's very cold down your way. There are probably other faults. White smoke is unburnt fuel.

    Being a 2009 model, it should have a DPF, so there may be a problem there.
    How many K's has it done. In theory it should last over 200,000k's, but depends on the driving conditions and other factors.

    Hi to all, was googling for clues on 407 HDi going over temp whilst maintaining a healthy speed up Moonbi ( a long climb north of Tamworth) when I came across an interesting account re sorting a 307 with 2.0 HDi (RHR) that blew lots of white smoke etc. If it may help y'all it was Professional Motor Mechanic at http://pmmonline.co.uk/technical-com...ugeot-307-hdi/
    Hoping it helps now or in the future; cheers

    I had a problem with that link. A site search for "Peugeot 307" on the home page found it.

    Doesn't white smoke = water?
    I'm pretty sure if your glow plugs aren't working, it will not do a dpf burn. Might be reason for lack of power after starting, ie. blocked dpf.

    You more than likely have multiple issues that need resolving.

    In a diesel white smoke is normally hydrocarbons. A bit blueish if partially burned oil, quite white if unburnt fuel. In days gone by nearly every indirect injection diesel blew white at a winter start, but it quickly cleared as the head warmed.

    I remember being stopped by police for blowing smoke as I started and pulled out, in the 70s. I explained it would clear and they waited and watched until it did!
