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

That is what I meant yes :(

HDi's shouldn't need to run the glowplugs for that long to start, and the white smoke is probably unburnt diesel - did you have any tests done on the injectors? It appears you've changed everything else...

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

Hi Andrei, welcome :cheesy: Your English is fine, much too good to be Google 8) . Is the injection pump siemens or bosch? The Siemens system has no low pressure/lift pump in the fuel tank and what happens with these is if they have a slight leak in the line the fuel can drain and then they are hard ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Most of the time I can get my meanings across, although this time one of the coppers had a fair bit of english (proving language doesn't have much to do with intelligence) saving a lot of ag, but I just have to accept I'm crap with languages, something I've inherited from my father.

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

It appears they changed the design (I wonder why...) as the later one seems to be straight- https://i.imgur.com/yfufpT0.jpg I don't think the RPO decoder I have goes that high... Maybe the later ones are ok? Incidentally, I tried logging in to Service Box for that but it's down, so I tried Citroen S...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

I've been wondering about that, the bottom of the dipstick tube is S-shaped - I watched the mechanic here extricating a broken dipstick from one, it was a long while back mind. I seem to remember the tube was quite narrow too. I thought maybe if you were using a sucker on one it would actually use t...

Re: Non-406 1.6 TU series engine problem

Get an endoscope/boreascope? Dropped valve, bent valve, valve seat fallen out.... I don't suppose it's going to be good, whatever it is, so you're best bet is to do the bare minimum to diagnose it to make sure you called it and then bin it.
