    Default High KMs on a diesel

    Just wondering whats the highest KMs anyone has put on a diesel pug/citroen. There's a few for sale with around 250,000 on the clock, and still asking good money. Wondering what they can do and still be a good car. My feeling is the motor would outlast the car.
    My Toyota 3L Hiace has got 527,000 and dosent use a drop of oil...any chance of a Pug doing that.

    i did a head on a 405SRDT a few years ago and at that stage it had 420k on it

    now this car lived on a dirt road, owned by a farmer and was driven every day

    at one point and for an unknown time the intake hose fell off and as such sucked in unfiltered air = death to any car let alone a diesel

    now when i pulled the head off the hone marks were still evident in the bores and everything looked good so i went ahead and completed the job

    when i did a compression test on the engine after completion the cylinders were all within 20psi of each other and producing around 4-420, a fresh SRDT engine should be around the 450+ mark so i was impressed

    that car blew a head gasket hence the need for the head to come off in the first place but that car had been driven for the previous 12 months with the head gasket blown

    so that is my story for pug diesels

    1 x secret project

    1 x '98 406 STDT troop carrier and i don't care if it stinks, i don't sniff it's arse Death by wank tank

    1 x '99 406SV 5spd wagon, time to burn more fuel

    1 x 1994 605 SV3.0

    197000 on a 2006 2 litre HDI 307 wagon....timing belts and oil and filter changes. Not a high mileage by any means but still runs like new

    The 306 HDi that I had in the UK had 220,000 MILES (355,000kms) on the clock when I sold it, and it still ran like new, no smoke, started perfectly, masses of torque and free revving and still got about 5 litres/100km.

    I miss that car.

    My 1999 406 HDi had 442 455 km on the clock when I parked at home at lunchtime today.

    As far as I can tell, they are genuine km and no major work has been done to the engine. I did have to replace the fuel injection pump early this year, but the car had been without a fuel cap for at least 80 000 km, so who knows what junk had got inside the tank and made its way to the injection pump!

    It has also survived me teaching one of my children to drive. I'm planning to teach at least one more child this year. I do some towing (firewood and ride on lawn mower on a 6x4 trailer).

    Starts first time, every time, hot Wagga summer weather, or cold, sub zero Wagga winter.

    Average fuel consumption over the 2.5 years and ~ 80 000 km that I've owned the car is 5.3 l/100 km

    Hope that info is of use to you.

    PS, oh, and I love this car. Someone said to me when I was researching to buy, "you'll look for excuses to go for a drive", and I thought, yeah, right, but 2.5 years later, I still do! It is a fantastic drive!

    Our '85 505 SRDT has done 406,000km. There's a bit of smoke on start up when cold but she uses no engine oil and runs smoke free when warm....

    400,000 is common for a petrol Peugeot engine. Diesels do much more. 6 or 7 thou not uncommon, but depends on how they're maintained.

    Im wondering if that applies to HDIs and newer petrol motors, which have nothing in common with the old motors.
    How many all alloy 1.8 motors made it to 200,000

    I spoke to a bloke today whose Douvrin ZDJL has done over 600k. The car is a S1 505 GTI Exec and the gearbox and clutch are also apparently unrebuilt.

    My 2004 307 touring hdi (66kw model motor) has now done 273,000 kms and still gets 6.1-6.3 l/100kms.
    It mostly does highway driving but it does go to the city at least once a week.
    I have confidence in it getting to 300k plus without any problems.
    I change oil an filters now myself every 10,000kms (have always had it done so), change cam belt etc every 100,000kms.
    I do not think many people would pay much for it but will most likely go on EBAY next year with 300k plus on it.

    Seen loads of 306 d turbo and hdi's with mega high miles, highest would of been a 306 d turbo with 570000+ miles so what ever that works out to be? and it only had serviceable parts replaced and a new turbo...

    I had a 405 GLD Estate / Wagon which had just over 420,000 miles [ 640,000km ] when I sold it to a London mini-cab guy back in '93. I suspect he probably took it up to around the 1M mark....

    Just usual servicing, brakes, clutch and tyres. I got my money's worth out of that car for sure.This was the old 1.9 non turbo Diesel. It never missed a beat.

    A 405 STDT Estate / Wagon replaced that but I did not have that car for so long. It was also faultless.

    One 505 srd in here had 986000km on the clock when it shipped to africa! It was used as a taxi in here. It was a mk2 505 sedan. Start looking for the ones with Indenor engines! I have two indenors with one of over 600k km on the clock and one with 516k km on the clock. The first one had 598k km without turbo. and the rest with it. Here's video of my 600k+ km 504 turbo

    My son's Civic '88 (GL) has 350k km on the clock. That's an all alloy engine, didn't change anything yet bar two clutches (over 120k km) and I think one set of plugs. Not Peugeot, but testimony to the durability of alloy engines.

    Remarkably, the original fuel hoses are still in place with no signs of aging.

    Nice video. Clean car and I like the original Dunlop wheels. Interesting turbo instalation.

    I had a 505 GRD 2.5 non turbo which was a very strong engine. I still have my fathers 504 Ti that i learned to drive in, in London. I think the 505 was the last of the durable diesels.

    In central Africa there are lots of 504's, 505's and plenty of 404's still running. Not many old Asian cars ....the two most sort after cars there are still the Peugeot 504 and the Mercedes W123.

    There are members on the 406oc forums who have 300,000+ miles on their HDI's - not a bad motor!

    My favourite was a 58 plate Honda Accord Euro (as a Taxi in London) with 200,000 miles on it. Tight as a drum.

    My 406 STDT has over 500,000km and was going fantastic till I drove it through a flood, now it needs a new engine

    My brothers BX16V has well over 600,000km and is still going strong and thats petrol. I'm not convinced a diesel engine will last any longer than a petrol engine, I think it come down to how there driven and how there maintained.

    We recently wrecked a 505 GTi with 915,000 on the clock.

    That's probably second time around for a Peugeot diesel

    My 306 Hdi has over 280000k's on it now.
    Had to change the injectors and fuel pressure regulator not long ago, but runs brilliantly.
    The 2l Hdi's are excellent engines.
