Prevention

Hello all,

I recently bought a Peugeot Partner 2.0Hdi (2006, 125k miles) and would like to know what I can do to keep it running smoothly for as long as possible. 

I know next to nothing about cars, but are there certain things I can do or buy (oils, fluids, filters, etc.) to keep the van in good shape and prevent any trouble down the line?

I would greatly appreciate any advice.

My apologies if this is the wrong section to be asking for this, by the way.

Welcome to the forum.

The 2.0 HDi engine is robust, the only thing that seems to trouble them is the cylinder head gasket, but even that is quite rare. Have a read around the forum, you should find posts on what oil people prefer, how often to change it etc. If you don't know when the coolant was last changed, that would be a good place to start.
Has the cambelt been changed recently?

Welcome!
Have a look on Ebay/Amazon for a Haynes manual (the correct year one!) - it will take you through the service items that will keep the van running well. Also look to source service items the same way and not have to pay main dealer pricing for filters etc.  Simple regular checking of  fluid levels and tyre pressures will help to alert you to any issues. If in doubt, ask on here.
Good luck!

I think there's a Haynes manual for the M59 on here somewhere, although it does not cover the 1.6HDi, it does cover the 2.0 & 1.9 and maybe the petrol too.

I thought so as well... I knew that I had downloaded it some time ago after being pointed to it on here... but it turns out that it is NOT downloadable directly from this forum (which is probably a good thing).

I tried to re-upload my copy, but it's way bigger (~95megs) than the 20meg file size limit (probably another good thing in hindsight).

In the end, I found gazahull's post:

Click the link, which still works.
Select Citroen, then scroll down to "Citroen Berlingo 1996-2005 Owners Workshop Manual".



BTW at the risk of going OT, what is the benefit of having three different diesel engines whose capacities are so nearly the same? Wouldn't it have made economic sense to, say, drop the 1.9 and only have the 1.8 and 2.0, or are they only different mapping of the same block, or am I missing something?

PS out of curiosity, I also looked at the 2CV wiring diagram in the same website. All it seems to show is a battery, a switch, an electric chicken poker, an egg boiler, and half a dozen light bulbs.

Those were the days!

Thank you all for the nice welcome and the solid advice you’ve given me! It really cheers me up knowing there’s friendly people out there willing to help a stranger.

@cancunia: The cambelt was last changed roughly 40k miles ago. Before I bought the van it went through an extensive vehicle safety and roadworthiness test (similar, I think, to the UK’s MOT) and came out clean, so I hope everything is roughly where it should be and in relatively decent shape. Thanks for the heads up on the coolant, I shall be checking it!

@oilyrag: Thanks for the suggestion and the helpful information. I just downloaded the guide thanks to Gryffindor’s link. I will certainly be browsing through it the next couple of days. Love the donkey in your avatar, by the way.

@Gryffindor: You’ve just saved me a decent amount of dough by sharing that link. Thank you very much!

Did it have a section showing how to take the seats out for a picnic as well ? Big Grin
So where does this bit go then ?

Back in the 1970s/80s I used to buy Motor magazine every week, and I can still remember their description of the 2CV as "having the mechanical complexity of a knife and fork", and the electrics were no doubt similar......

I'm afraid to ask what an "electric Chicken poker" is...
