Re: Lumpy Idle

That's exactly my experience, it takes 1-2 weeks for the contact spray to do its work. Can't explain why. Had this with the Saxo, engine management light going on and Lexia software reading a fault code that indicated a wrong lambda sensor signal. Spraying the connector helped, the fault code came b...

Re: Plip key battery replacement

There are testers for this, see e.g.:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/TV-Video-and-H ... +RF+tester

The frequency is usually 433 MHz.

Might work, i have no experience with these devices.

Re: Lumpy Idle

I had the same issues a few months ago. I went through all electrical connectors that i could find under the bonnet, uplugged then and sprayed electrical contact spray on them. Reseat and release a couple of times, then release to let them dry for about 15 minutes before plugging all back in again. ...

Re: Help with A/C

Have you checked the refrigerant level/pressure? I seem to remember that the BSI will not engage the clutch of the compressor if the refrigerant level/pressure is too low.

Re: Peugeot 406 2.0 HDI 90HP, cold start problem

To check for oil leak, you might do a less intruding analysis with an endoscope (small camera with a light in it on a flexible stick) to look inside the chambers when the engine is cold and has not run for a while.

"clever" is not the word. More like "autistic obsession" combined with "too much spare time" :wink:

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

But! To figure all sensors that are used for this engine i would need wiring schematic for ES9 J4S. Does anyone have that? There are the "SEDRE" disks. I have them, but the're a bit too large to post here as an attachment :wink: Also do any of you know of a good method how to spy on the wire withou...

Re: Peugeot 508 2.2HDi GT - talk to me...

One of the reasons (apart from money) that I don't run a modern car is the complexity and unreliability of them, although I do think that the PSA engines are a little better than most of the others, but if you want a really reliable car you need to go back to the first Hdi 8 valve engines as used i...

Re: Peugeot 406 2.0 HDI 90HP, cold start problem

Not sure if it is an easy job, even if you don't have to remove the cylinder head. You may need some special tools. Some details on https://frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=19808 . At the very least, take good care that you not drop the valve into the cylinder! See it as a "challenge" :wink:

Re: Peugeot 406 2.0 HDI 90HP, cold start problem

Is it possible to replace to valve steam seals without removing the cylinder head? :D I never did it myself but it seems to be accessible by lifting the rocker cover. So no cylinder head removal necessary. Here is the diagram from "Service box". Valve stem seal.jpg http://406oc.co.uk/download/file....
