Re: Reliability

I believe mine was finished off by the extra stress of towing,

All head gaskets will fail at some point.

Some cars are more prone than others but in the trade the Peugeot 2.0 hdi has quite a reputation
Despite what Peter thinks.

Re: Problems when engine warm

Whilst I agree with barbaren, My head gasket was gone, I had no white smoke from the exhaust & my header tank was blowing out coolant when warm, it also had a wobble on idle. If the head is cracked it should pressurise the cooling system, the best thing to do is have a sniffer test done. When the wh...

I have had zero interest at £895 with all new tyres ect ect To be honest I've spent more in the last year than I'm asking. I might just burn it, rather than give some tigh...

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

Unfortunately Steve the coupe market in the UK is crap,
I know that car it belongs to a forum member, it's even better in the flesh.
But everyone in the UK want's to pay peanuts.
I know I sold my two in August.
The other problem is it's a 2.0ltr not a V6.

Re: Head gasket repair

It's never worked for me & I have stupidly forked out for it twice :roll:
It can't fix a combustion leak between cylinders which is what happens most of the time.

Spend your tenner & then curse the removeal of the stuff when you have to rebuild it properly,.

See my post's on the subject.

I wanted a 2008 on Mondingo but a 2.2 but couldn't find a nice one for under 6k, The one I loved was 8.5k. So in the end I've bought a BMW e61 535d :supafrisk: I have to say I'm very pleased with it.

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

Peter, With regard to your brake servo issue, I had the same thing a coupe of years ago. Turned out it was the rubber seal that the 90° plastic elbow that connects the vacuum line to it was leaking. A new kit from Peugeot & it's good as new :) ps: it's been discussed on the forum a bit over the years.

Re: New car suggestions

To replace 1 of our 406 estates I got a 2009 Mazda 6 Estate with a 2.2 MZR-CD 185HP Diesel, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy, Nice car to drive but in the past 12 months its had 2 x timing chains, The first one I fitted at 160000 miles as the original was badly stretched, failed under part...
