Re: Starclip washer

Starclip washers can fit many different sizes, are you sure you are looking for a starclip washer...a dome shaped washer with prongs that slip over a shaft to lock an item onto the shaft?

Re: Starclip washer

Loads of starclip washers online!

Any car accessory shop will usually have a box of assorted clips...failing that nip into a local garage and ask them if they have one.

Re: intermittent non starting - again!

Yes, take off the top connector and make sure it's clean.

Good luck with it :)

Re: intermittent non starting - again!

On one type the solenoid is right on top of the pump, you just unscrew it....the other type I forget how it fits. On the one that screws out...the test for the solenoid is to remove the pin and then try to start it, if it starts fine then make sure the pin is nice and clean, switch the ignition on t...

Re: intermittent non starting - again!

Check the fuel cut off solenoid on the fuel pump. The pin inside could be sticking.

Re: Crankshaft pulley on 110 hdi.

I've never snapped a crank bolt in 48 years of working with cars!

The good thing with using the starter is that the bolt is "shocked" free and if you have a really tight one, the bolt can be loosened a fraction then plied with WD40 onto the bolt thread which will help it loosen up.

Re: Non-406 1.6 TU series engine problem

Well done with the Twingo John. 'Our' 307 is going well, original engine had a shredded cambelt in the end. Fingers crossed for the HPi, be a shame to lose such a striking example. Have you considered turning it into an 'ordinary' 2.0 petrol? Thanks, glad the 307 is doing well :) Good news on the H...

Re: Non-406 1.6 TU series engine problem

Finished the Twingo today...mot Monday at 11am.

The 406 is proving difficult to fix...going back to Yorkshire with a new fuel pressure sensor...if that doesn't fix it then it will be terminal as I've run out of patience with it.

Re: Sump 'crush' washers - a lesson learned

The latest sump washers have a rubber ring inside them for sealing.

I always smear a little instant gasket onto the washer, never get leaks.

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

From my experience your problem appears to be a classic glow plug fault or an injector issue.

The injectors you fitted were second hand, how do you know they are working perfectly?

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

I think you may have an injector problem here, however, by the looks of things and given the mileage (high Kilometers covered) I think you should be realistic and see that this problem may be one of a tired engine.

I agree with your mechanic...the smoke looks like unburnt diesel.

Re: Wheel Bearing roulette - Volvo woes

Yes, it's true that the noise can go on without issue for a while, but be warned it is possible the bearing could seize, after all, the lubricant no longer exists! I recently replaced the rear wheel bearing on a Fiesta (yes, another Ford :))... 2 weeks previous I had warned the customer that the bea...

Re: 406 HPi

Had a word with my diagnostics guy this morning (he checked the ECU for me last time the car was here) he reckons I should take note of what the BSI has stored in it as the ECU fault could be connected...I didn't do a global test last time :roll: clearly I should have! He reckons it's time to give u...

Re: 406 HPi

No experience with petrol engines & PP2k, but here's my 2p worth.... Inlet manif press sensor - is it giving a reading in engine ecu parameters? I've no idea what it should read, but if it's downstream of the throttle you'd expect to see a vacuum on the overun, less at idle and little or nothing wi...
