Peugeot 406 Tips

Peugeot is a French automobile manufacturer. They've been in the business of building cars since the 1800s. With that kind of history, you'd expect quality vehicles. The 406 was sold by Peugeot from 1997 to 2003. While the cars are generally reliable, there are a few tips to keep in mind.

Locked Injection Pump Rotor

If the Peugeot 406 is difficult to start or it won't start at all, or if it has no acceleration when you get it started, the problem might be a locked injection pump rotor. This usually happens only when the engine is hot before starting. This may require replacement of the pump.

Loose Clutch Lead

A shuddering of the clutch when pulling away can indicate a loose ground--or "earth" as it's called in Europe--lead on the clutch housing. The lead should be located on the engine housing. Tightening the lead should fix this problem.

Battery Warning Light Persistence

If the battery warning light remains on after shutting the engine off, the problem is probably in the alternator itself. It's still sending power even when the engine is shut down. Replace the alternator to fix the problem.
