Question about 1990 Peugeot 405

Mysterious 'bottle' in engine of Peugeot 205 (1990)

There was no 205 model to select so I have selected the 405.

There is a bottle at the very back right of the engine compartment with some pinkish fluid in it. Although the bottle appears in the drawing of the engine in the owners manual - there is no indication of what it is for. Is it vital? What does it do? What should I put in it if anything?

If there is a small black hose going from that to the radiator, that's for the anti-freeze coolant. That is a special anti-freeze called prestone dex-cool. It's not green like the regular stuff. Now, if the hose is running up toward the windshield, that's windshield washer fluid. Prestone de-ice, that's also colored, and not blue. Just got to make sure which is which.

The engine become hot very soon

suspect head gasket, check rad is hot all over and check thermostat, more likely a head gasket. remove rad and if water is jumping out thats your prob, becareful if opening hot as if gasket gone there will be a lot of pressure and it will scald you.

Search 'books' for Peugeot 405 (you will find the Haynes Manual). Make sure you choose the right one for your Year & type (Petrol/Diesel) = the wiring diagrams are in the back. Cost is about £20.

You can also borrow the Manual from your local Library for free ..
