Question about 1991 Peugeot 405
Why is there a lot of smoke from peugeot partner 98d and loss of power
What I write probably will not solve your problem, at least not immediately, however, this is not all ways possible with every car repair. What I write is the truth. During my automotive career I was a factory trained Peuguot technician, so I speak with a little certainty.
A lot of smoke can have several implications, and I will address the most basic first.
Whether you can do it yourself or have someone else do it, you need to have a compression test made on the cylinders. This is a test that will check both the piston rings and valves.
For example, a low compression reading can mean worn piston rings, which can cause excessive oil burning. This condition would show up as white smoke.
Another condition that would show up as white smoke is water getting mixed with the oil. Both of the conditions I just mentioned would also come with a loss of power.
Unfortunately, there aren't many cheap little fixes that can solve problems, much to the customers demise. Please do remember, the most direct route to any problem is a correct diagnosis, whatever that may be.
If you would like to correspond further with me on this or any other issue, please feel free to do so.
