Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

On my 2003 2.2 HDi the speed signal comes from the ABS sensors, BUT the signal from the final drive is used by the Satnav and the BSI for detecting the threshold for auto door locking, auto wipers, (swap to intermittent at standstill), increased idle speed etc. It doesn't have to make sense. :roll: ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Just to prove you're not completely on your own here..... Don't know if available in your manor Steve, but DeWalt kit is our weapon of choice at work, seem to be the best price/longevity compromise. I think they're re-badged Black & Splutter power tools, but to be fair their industrial stuff was alw...

Re: Brake fluid loss

Not sure if this is practical, but there is a sheet metal cover over the lower part of bell housing that you can clearly see from underneath. Not sure if you can remove or at least loosen it without disturbing much else?

Edit: PS what's rain?

Re: D9 wanted

Maybe, but I think you'll need the turbo, wastegate, vacuum stuff to control it, intercooler, MAP sensor, boost pipes, most likely the engine bay wiring loom, (could be quite a few other bits too). You would probably need to swap the ecu, BSI and the key transponder as a set so the 90 'thinks' it's ...

We found a China blue one local.....
Very popular colour. :wink:

Only realistic option is a remap, about 125 bhp achievable at reasonable cost.
HDi Tuning have a good reputation from what I hear.

Re: 406 exec Estate gearbox

Think they're same, just more of.

As to longevity, mine did 70k in it's original cistern C5 & has tolerated 120k of 400Nm+ abuse since 2013. :supafrisk:

Re: 406 exec Estate gearbox

+1 the ML5C (compact)? has a slightly shorter casing, (by about 10mm).

An ML6C is the same size as the ML5T and still has reverse beside 1st

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

Not had the 'pleasure' of trying the new-style MOT, but I'm not expecting any issues when it comes around. Wouldn't worry about the glow plug issue, nearly all of them have a fault code logged for them and it'll start just fine at -15 without waiting for them to heat up anyway. My egr mod isn't so e...

Re: Dual mass flywheel

They're fitted for a reason. As rwb says to absorb the torque pulsation. It may protect the gearbox, but my understanding is that the slower the engine turns, the harder they work. The most extreme condition occurs as the engine is starting or stopping, (hence combining a DMF with stop/start 'techno...

Re: pp2000 maf sensor readings

The other thing you can observe with a failing MAF is the value reducing initially as you increase speed from idling. A healthy one has its lowest reading at idle and increases with engine speed.

If you'd like to see thick smoke look out for VAG, Mercedes and Vauxhalls of around the 2000's era.
Agreed. Plus Frods of all ages. :supafrisk:

Re: 406 niggles nearly all fixed

Egr is the usual culprit. They're gutless on transition from overrun to pulling at low revs cos the mixture of fuel and recycled exhaust won't actually burn until you get some fresh air in there.
Both my 2.2's pull from about 25 in 4th, 40 in 5th (& about 55 in 6th with this one).
