Question about 1986 Peugeot 505
1986 Peugeot 505 STi Turbo starts runs for about 6 minutes and then shuts off on its own. After trying to start it again, and not starting I have to sit there and wait for 1-20 minutes. After that my headlights, dash lights, and brights are dim sometimes I have to get a jump when it does'nt start. The other day the battery and alternator was checked- normal.It's been freezing/snowing wheather here.I am going to check the wires to see if that is the issue. But if anybody has any suggestions that would be much appreciated and a lot of help! Thanks
carb? mono point injection or multi point injection.check for a thin rubber air hose that runs to ign module is it intact or sucking in air caused by being perished also the thin pipe running to the air intake cold /hot ,flap control .if carb then it has a adjusting screw ,and mono point but multipoint is different.91 model also uses a distributor which could be advanced a slightly ,check the same sort of air pipe to the gearbox as iam sure this year has a pipe to operate the gearchange.any of these pipes sucking air can cause your problem

Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.

Change your engine oil along with oil filter because the same oil is used to cool down your turbo and any dirt means you're going to damage your turbo. Also check the diesel/petrol filter and replace it if not serviced in last two years. Check the hdi pressure (computer diagnose in a garage) because if it is not high enough you can't gain the desired acceleration. If injector seals are leaking then obviously pressure leaks. Clean your turbo sorrounding and check the leakage of oil. In solenoid area If its not enough to drip down or just a little amount that sits with dirt then don't worry (as caused by solenoid seal wear & tear) it has enough life to cover another thousands of miles. Find this solenoid and let it replaced. But if it is from your turbo fan then it doesn't comes out but goes directly in engine to burn with fuel and you can't even find a drop around your turbo housing. Best way is to keep your car serviced in regular intervals.
