2001 Peugot 206 Stalling after revving

I have had issues before with the car not starting but turned out to be loose wiring, the diagnostic machine was showing a injector error but the lads found the loose wires and it had been running fine until.... Yesterday I hit a bumb in the road and the engine light come on for a few seconds and the car attempted to stall but continued to run, this happened twice on the way home. I went out later that night, stopped at the traffic lights and the car stopped but turned over straight away. I have gone out this morning to take a look and found after revving the car it nearly stalls every time, I can also hear a whistling coming from the engine bay but cannot track it down yet (seems to be from the back of the bay). Does anybody have any idea where I could start, I have read around but not definite answer has been found.

Whistling sounds and the high rpms to a stall situation could be a loose /broken vacuum pipe possible to the transmission actuator ( automatic)
happening after a bump could be from broken engine mounts , loose ground points, harness connections loose loose battery terminals

SOURCE: Cirrus Stalling With Check Engine Light On did not come on the first time it happened

Your problem sounds like it may be a Mass Air Flow sensor, when it does run bad disconnect the sensor, if the engine starts running ok the sensor is bad, this would be the most common reason for your problem and why it is only intermittent. As far as the overheat do you have a coolant leak?

SOURCE: Car running rough and stalling

I had the same problem with my dodge neon. Its your transmission slipping. My car had to have all the transmission flushed and it helped alot, but the longer you let it go, the damage could be permanent.

  • Yes, possibly the water got up around ignition parts or electrical connections that are giving you problems. Have the engine computer scanned for diagnostic trouble codes. If the engine light was on, it should have set a code.

2001 Peugeot 206 1.1 Stalling after revving

As the engine light came on there should be a fault code stored in the memory that should provide a clue.

When searching for whistles and other noises listening through a piece of hose can be a helpful way to pinpointing the source.

I have a Peugeot 206 xsi 2002. When turning mostly right there is a grinding noise on drivers side. I've checked go any debris it may be catching on. No debris. It also sounds like the engine is...

Revving quite high when starting is normal if the engine is cold. The revving is caused by extra fuel via the automatic choke and this reduces to normal running noise level when the engine has heated up. Assuming your car is regularly serviced i.e. oil, filters, etc and if this is not normal behavior I would recommend using a good 'total fuel system cleaner' additive as this will clean your fuel system that may have built up dirt over time and not be working at 100%. As regards the grinding noise on the drivers side when turning - this could most likely be your CV joint (Check the rubber seal for cracks and grease and if so have it replaced immediately before it seizes) or it could also be a worn suspension joint or even a worn/jammed brake pad (noticeable when breaking). Either way you need to take it to your mechanic.

Turn the ignition on. Whats the status of service miles? If service miles are reached zero then the diagnostic light comes up to remind you to bring your car to service station. If needed check my other posts to find out the procedure to set off the service /diagnostic light.
Check that the motor oil and oil filter are changed at regular intervals.
For 206 1.4 sports ecu can be scanned by many garages, costs around 45 quids.
