Re: 2.0 HDi 110hp Bad cold start

Hmmm... So there may be a possibility your EGR valve was leaking, but now it isn't because you have unplugged the vacuum supply ( I hope you sealed the pipe?) This may have affected your cold start, but after a recent post about a member with poor hot starting I would suggest you unplug the MAF sens...

Re: 2001 2.2 hdi poor hot start

To echo what Peter said - if you undo the 2 10mm bolts that hold the fuel filter on then you can simply flip it over to allow access to the fuel pressure regulator. It is a different regulator on a 2.2hdi - but the fitting is the same. May I suggest a couple of things to also try? Use Peugeot Planet...

Re: Problems when engine warm

That's a great result.

I know the MAF can get dirty and cause fueling issues but I've not known one to be that bad...!!

Did you buy a genuine one or an eBay special?

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

It's up to the current owner to renew the lease to make the property more attractive - if they are prepared to extend the lease as a gesture of goodwill then I can't see the whole freehold Vs leasehold being an issue. A 999 year lease will certainly sort you out, and it means of you come to sell in ...

Re: The wonky £1K citron Citroën

Check the lease Rich, my flat had about 70 years left and people were put off ( plus it was a ridiculous freehold/leasehold cross affair )

A new lease of 999 years cost about £700

Re: Head gasket repair

That's not a bad price to be fair - given the amount of work involved :cheesy:

Nice to see you've saved your car.

Re: Problems when engine warm

Fair enough :cheesy:

I thought white smoke could also be unburned fuel - which made me believe the air/fuel mixture was wrong..

As you can tell I'm not a mechanic :lol:

Re: Problems when engine warm

Could it be something less sinister, like a stuck EGR, or a blocked air filter..? I'm not sure why it runs fine when cold but as soon as things warm up then you get problems... If you add your location here, maybe someone local can use diagnostics on it to check the air flow, EGR, injection values e...

It's also possible to clean the springs from inside the TPS rather than buy a new one.
Not always a fix but for the sake of 10 mins....

Re: wanted pp2000 for 2001 406

Hi Jon. Sadly I don't have one for sale - but the one I use I bought in about 2010 for my 406, which was a 2004.. I've since used it for many different Peugeot's ranging from my 1998 Coupe, up to a 2012 308 ( it wouldn't read anything newer unless I use Diagbox instead.. ) There are plenty around, I...

Re: HDI starting issue

Yes, I have a similar thing with my van - if the battery is slightly low it just won't start, but it'll jump start fine.

No harm in charging your battery overnight to see if it makes a difference, and it's an opportunity to check your battery clamps are on tightly.

Re: Type C display issue

You could send it to someone with a full mux car and PP2K - they can reconfigure it then post it back to you.
Just a thought.
