    Default Peugeot 307 Hdi Eolys fluid

    Hello fellow froggers
    I think this topic has been covered before but that information may now be lost. I have a 2004 2L 307 Hdi and its getting close to 160,000K.My understanding is that I should expect to see a warning message telling me the eolys fluid is low.I have been quoted by my local peugeot 'expert' $400.00 for the fluid only. I would be grateful if anyone out there could answer the following questions-
    1. Does anyone supply eolys fluid at a reasonable price?
    2. Can I refill the eolys reservoir myself or is it a dealer only job?
    3. What happens if I ignore the low fluid warning and keep driving?
    Have just fitted new front discs and pads with parts supplied by European Auto Imports, can highly recommend their prices and speedy delivery.

    Are you talking about the additive pouch?

    I can't answer one or two, but if you ignore the low fluid warning and keep driving, eventually you will suffer from a prematurely clogged particulate filter, due to it not being able to regenerate itself properly.

    This means the filter will need replacing (probably costing a lot more than replacement fluid) and undoubtedly some poor performance (particularly climbing hills) if you don't.
    Regards,

    $400 for the fluids a pretty good price since the fluid does last 150,000km - 200,000km and no you cannot do it by yourself, has to be done at a peugeot specialist for the additive ecu to have its counter reset otherwise you'll have the new fluid in the tank but you'll get the warning still coming up.

    do not touch this stuff without gloves and full skin protection...you can do it yourself ...theres either a bladder or a hard plastic contianer...the container can be refilled the bladder must be replaced..I buy it from the UK for well less than half what it costs here incl exorbitant post cost...the bladder can cost over $1000 here, about 200 from the UK incl post
