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.

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.
