Loose gear stick on Peugeot 206

The gear stick is very loose. It works fine, but when I drive at speed it rattles. I'm just concerned that this will lead to a bigger problem. Any feedback would be great Jude

SOURCE: Peugeot 206 temperature gauge not working?

it could be a couple of things, first, check the wires to the temprature sender unit make sure they have not broke, as it was sudden this may be it, also it could be the sender unit it self as a freind of mine had with her car i changed that and the one for the radiator switch, but most of the time it will be something to do with the sender unit on the engine...hope this helps

SOURCE: Hi, peugeot 206 clutch/engine problem..

It seems like the clutch pressure plate has given in. Best would be to replace the clutch pro-kit.( Clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing)

SOURCE: My Peugeot 206 has a rattle

Sound like pre-ignition problem. pre-ignition is caused by running too low an octan fuel in the engine. The way octane works is simply the lower the number the faster the burn. If the fuel burns before the piston gets to the proper position in the cylinder it can cause what is call in the industry a ping. The remedy is to use a highert slower buning octane fuel or change the ignition timing. Mind you some engines with higher compression may not like the lower octane fuel even after adjusting the timing.

Gear stuck in 5th, shifter works fine. Cable fine, put in 4th shifter starts rattling, stays in 5th (1st &2nd) car is stuck. Internal it looks like, but hope I'm wrong. Please tell me

Sounds internal to me. Fifth gear bearing locked up. I assume it is manual(unless the bearing has welded itself to the shaft and case)? These aren't hard to rebuild. Automatics are a bit trickier. Either of them have to come out.

Transmission is roaring and rattling

One thing you obviously have a leak somewhere for your fluid to be gone in a days span and it would have to be a very severe leak for that to happen. Second it sounds like your parking pin may have sheered off and now it could be rattlingf around inside your trans. Which would be a very bad problem cuz it could lodge itself in your gears and shred everything while your driving down the road. Lastly and in my opinion, the worst possibility would be that you have sheered gears and the pieces are clancking around in there. Regardless of which one it is you should avoid driving it until you can get it repaired. If its a manual trans and you are mechanically inclined you could service the trans yourself automatic trans you will need to purchase a new or rebuilt unit, most likely. Hope I could help.

Gear link or box problem

Sounds like a piece of linkage came loose. If it were an internal tranny problem, doubtful that the stick would be loose. Examine all linkage for something very obvious.

OK i have a 91 honda civic hatchback and the engine was runs fine...however when i start it cranks for awhile before it starts...the starter and battery are fine however the carborator sticks...

That flap is automatic the choke. Not the throttle. Cleaning it should restore normal operation. Avoid spray plastic parts if there is any such as plastic bushing used in carburator linkage, other than that I cant think of any bigger underlying problem. Avoid prolonged high speed on rebuilt engines untill its broken in(500 miles)

Tranny in my 1998 jeep wrangler takes off in second gear from dead stop if i punch it it will kick into drive it shifts fine after you start to move

The trans in your vehicle is a 3 speed auto,A904 model,also designated the 30RH or32RH.The trans is totally hydraulic,no electronic controls with the exception of tcc apply,aka,lockup.The vehicle shifts from throttle pressure and a governor.The governor is inside the tailhousing of the trans and is responsible for the road speed signal in this trans.If the valves in the governor start sticking,the vehicle will take off in 2nd gear.The valves can be cleaned,and sometimes jarred loose,but the more pressing concern is why are the valves sticking?The valves will start sticking when other parts of the trans starts making metal.So the governor sticking can sometimes be the symptom of a larger problem.Pull the trans pan and look for metal,and if so, how bad?One way to clear the governor of debris is to find an abandoned road or parking lot.At a complete stop,engage Reverse gear,and back up as fast as you dare.I have backed cars up at 20-30 mph before,but wouldn't recommend you to.This can blow debris out of the governor hydraulic circuits,and free the governor valves as highest line pressure inside the trans is obtained in Reverse gear.Good luck.
