Welcome To Peugeotlogic
The Independent Technical Information Site For Peugeot Owners!
The purpose of this website is to provide technical information to Peugeot owners and professional repairers.
We welcome visitors from all over the world and invite you to contact us with questions or to make contributions.
We would like to encourage everyone to browse the workshop and FAQ section before posting questions.
This site was founded in 1992 by a Peugeot technician who became increasingly frustrated
with the lack of technical information at the time. Documentation systems for known issues that would
be available to anyone worldwide were unheard of back then. Peugeot Technicians used to lead a very lonely
existence in their workshop, digging in the dark for solutions to difficult problems.
This is what inspired the creation of this website. Not much ever became of it; it was just
an insignificant idea that resulted in this little insignificant web site.
Much has changed since then; the car Manufacturer Peugeot has established an online training and
information centre that has no rivals. Their splendid system provides Factory technicians with product
training and workshop repair manuals.
The online workshop manuals, that also contain workshop bulletins relating to known faults, can be accessed
by independent car repairers for a fee. We can't however show you a link to the website as Peugeot explicitly
forbids to publish links to the technical site. The name of the site contains the words, servicebox, public and
I believe also the the name of the brand. I hope by saying this we did not break any French or international laws.
Are you looking for answers?
Do you have a problem with your Peugeot that nobody has been able to solve?
Have you been left in the dark by your repairer.
Search this site for information on your car problem first, and if you are unsuccessful you can contact us with a detailed description of the issue.
We will then try to find a possible solution for you. It's free and you will get a reply but no guarantee.
We are happy to share what we know but we don't apologise for what we don't know.
Engine Oil, mineral, synthetic or semi-synthetic?
What oil should I put in my Peugeot engine?
That's the question we get asked most often and there is more than just a single and simple answer. In the last 10 years diesel and petrol engines went through massive technological advancements yielding phenomenal increases in performance, fuel efficiency, durability and reduction in harmful emissions. With the advancement of the internal combustion engines the demand on lubricants has also increased. We need to ask more than just: Should I use mineral oil, semi-synthetic, or full-synthetic oil? We have to look for the ACEA specification. To learn more about oils go to the Oil Bible
How to choose The right oil
For your car
Peugeot recommends Total oils. Total is a very good oil but that does not mean you can't use another brand.
The oil requirement is usually specified in the owners handbook and on a label under the bonnet. The spec. for a HDi
engine for example could look like this, ACEA B4/C3. The best way to decide wich oil to use is to go to the oil manufacturer's web site
and use their Lubrication Guide. Here are two links:
