SOURCE: I recently had a new

this could be 1 of 4 things

you have become use to change characteristics of the old well worn/broken down oil - but even so new oil should not be excessivey stiffer

incorrectly adjusted clutch - although 406s had a self adjuster cable

incorrectly installed clutch

or most probably

wrong gear box oil - i have experience this, garages will use one grade/type of gear oil - check what spec your car is meant to have and change it - it made a huge difference on my peugeot

the oil filler and drain are accessible by removing the road wheel on the gearbox side of the car

The clutch acting system is hydraulical, (clutch hydraulic system).
Your clutch pedal master cylinder is weak, and needs to be replaced or repaired by gasket kit replacement. Also the clutch slave cylinder can be used, and needs to be repaired (by gasket kit replacement), or replaced. The clutch system must be bled after carrying out work on the hydraulic clutch mechanism.

Got a Peugeot 406 2001model feeling vibration on clutch pedal try to change gears won't let me I turn off engine and I have gears again for a short time


It's possible there could be a leak in the hydraulic clutch slave cylinder and it is pulsing from air. Check your fluid level and check around the cylinder for any leakage. If need then replace and bleed system.

How to change drive belt peugeot 406 2.0


Buy a Haynes Workshop Manual for Peugeot 406 1999-2002 PN 3982. Definitely it will help. It is a relatively easy job. Normal, the drive belt is a life time component if you keep the car properly. Mine is 2004 406 Coupe 2.0 auto. The belt is still in top condition.

The clutch pedal seems to be very flopy and is not going into gear easily


Can be broken spring on the cluch pedal in side the car, that hold the pedal all the way back for full amount of brake fluid to the slave cylender, can be checked by pulling the pedal all the way up before steping it to the floor and putting in to gear or just look up under the daschbord on the pedal. Can allso be to little brake fluid in container. To check the master cylender rubber, step on the pedal putt in gear with engine running and wait with pedal all the way to the floor, if the rubber is gone the car wil start to go after some time (1/2-1 min or less) To check the slave cylender rubber will be dune the same way and working same way but it will be leaking out and on the floor.
