How can I change language from Japanese to English on PANASONIC car navigation system CN-DV5500WD? I just bought a Peugeot 206 automatic, 2002 model from japan


I don't think you can on that model. Alot of JDM does not support ENGLISH. even if you do the navigation may not be usable or up datable for outside Japan and if you are in N. America the radio station stepping is different. Probably be easier to replace with a unti designed for your market and sell that unit back to someone in japan.

How do I change miles to km on Peugeot 407


Check with a Peugeot dealer, but I think, for sure, you will need a new speedometer head, ( the unit on the dashboard that you look at) and perhaps a new transmission sending unit, (that would be inside the transmission.)
(When I say new, I mean "new to the car", a pair of used pieces might work.)
If either you cannot find, or cannot afford the conversion, you might consider a "conversion chart" made on a piece of paper stuck on the dashboard, that you would likely memorize over a few months of time.
God bless your efforts.

1996 Peugeot 405: Will Mobil ATF D/M automatic transmission fluid work satisfactorily in 1996 Peugeot 405?


I just checked with a Mobil application guide that makes only three suggestions

Automatic Transmission 2.4ltr
Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF
Mobil ATF 320
Mobil ATF 220


You could put just about anything in for emergency get you home purposes but only recommended oil should be used if it is to remain in there.
A quart is a lot of oil to lose. I suggest finding the cause is a big priority.

Have1987dodgeram 50 2.0 Ucan start and will run forever sitting still Take off and drive you might make 20 miles 45 miles1/4 of a mile and it will die starving for fuel? Has elec pump on inner fender


If it has fuel injection it could be throttle position sensor or other sensors that regulate fuel into the engine. Find a book, maybe buy a diagnostic plug-in device for that car and it might send a code to dashboard with flashing lights, that's the modern feature these days. If Dodge has that it could tell you what's wrong and better to try first than replacing expensive fuel pump or taking to mechanics. My 93 gmc has fuel injection and computer and recently it flashed a code 15, found codes on internet and it said problem was a coolant temperature sensor reading too high. It would start cold, but nearly would not start with engine warm. Replacing that solved it.

What generates fuel injection pulse on a 1994 geo metro base model? I have replaced alternator, TBI injector, and ECU. Checked relays, fuel pump and filter. Feed and return line are clear. On startup I get...


The PCM (ECU does that) its part of what is called EFI, electronic fuel injection, it's a computer, that gets inputs, and uses those inputs to injector perfectly at ALL times.
what engine? 3cy. or 4? is it TBI injected or MPI injected
1 injector or 4? we need to know that first.
does it run on test fuel for 3 seconds.
when was last time it run perfect, last week last year. what?
first off stop guessing, you can go broke that way.
want to diagnosis it? the steps are easy. if fuel is good..
  1. fuses good.?
  2. CEL lamp glow keyon, if not ECU is bad. or bulb , it must glow.
  3. compression over 150PSI on all cyl. (w.o.t = wide open throttle)
  4. do a 60k, mile tune up yet, filters, spark,. and cam timing belt.?
  5. if not, why wait?
  6. 6: is spark good tall cylinders not just 1? is the timing way off if yes, the cam belt did slip, do not fiddle tiiming, fix the belt. first.
  7. ok it now magically runs on test fuel for 3 seconds and sounds great. so we do fueling last.
  8. fuel pressure tests are next. takes $20 gauge got one?
  9. ill stop here, as fueling tests are long play.l..... ask. if you can get to step 9,

I think all 94 metors are TBI engines, one injector
up to 1997 inclusive.
then the 1998 offered 4cyl, MPI injected engine.


have you learned how to use flash codes (DTC) yet?
insert jumper , key on, see CEL lamp glow and flash 12s'
the crank for 5seconds, see if the flashes go to 41 or 42?
bingo if yes.
the TBI allows the mech to watch injection, at the TB.
with top hose off. you can watch it inject as person 2 cranks.
does it?
the ECU brain cuts fuel at the first sign of:
  1. lost spark (to stop fires)
  2. lost Cmp sensor, same .
  3. TPS ground wire busted and ecu things foot is W.O.T (super secret unflood mode) (or TPS cracked in half inside)
or total loss of fuel pressure.

Car lurches when accellerator is held steady


The air conditioner shutoff switch does that occasionally when the AC is on, if it's maladjusted. Does the car have an air conditioner?

Is the Distributor Cap on Securely? Has it become wet and shorted out recently {Car Wash, deep Water, Etc.}

Another thing that causes this is the fuel pump and filter assembly. Is this a fuel injected car or carburated? Have the injectors or filters been replaced recently? Fuel filter is the first thing to swap out since it is starting already. A plugged filter can burn up the electric pump. And change the Air Filter too.

Finally, is it full of transmission fluid? What kind of transmission does it have? Automatic-> trans fluid or Torque Converter. Manual-> clutch is slipping or oily from seeping or spilled oil. Manuals need oil too, so check it's fluid level also.
