Re: P1198 error code - Peugeot 406 HDi

May also be worth checking the strainer, (built into the fuel tank level sender unit). If partly clogged it may cause fuel starvation at maximum flow.

Never known one to go wrong, but I have seen leaks in that area or even the sensor tube broken away from the intercooler in one case.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

You're probably right about the practicalities of a conversion, reckon you would as a minimum need a map from a manual car's ecu..... You're best bet is probably to work out the least worst long term strategy for finding it a loving forever home without shelling out mega bucks on a replacement. Pay ...

Re: need advoce maf sensor

I've had several attempts at cleaning these without any success.
It's definitely the MAF - his car runs perfectly with mine fitted and consistently runs two distinct versions of badly with either of the two sensors he has.

Re: 1.6HDi coming our way - Please Help!

Get the PM to renegotiate with the garage?

Was the C4 available with an ordinary manual option? I guess it's an 'automated manual' like the ZF (fr)'Agile' box in my camper.
Strikes me that if so a manual conversion might be possible for less money than the 'investigation' the garage proposed.

I don't think so - isn't it attached to the cat/dpf?

From what ...

Re: need advoce maf sensor

CP4L gets me Product Code: 434735070 Siemens VDO for £116.66 -£14 (DEC12) = £102.66 One for a 2.0 HDi is Product Code: 434735121 Siemens VDO for £83.33 before discount. :( Not convinced the GSF premium is a genuine replacement, I'm having a 'live chat' with them...... 10 minutes, no answer. :roll:

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Sorry if I've added to your list. :oops: I would weigh up the relative cost / benefit of reducing heat loss vs biggerrer stove. The first option is a one-off cost/activity that might be cheap if you happen on suitable materials say over the spring/summer. You have to feed a bigger stove more as well...
