Peugeot 4007, 2011 2.2 diesel. Have fault code P2128. Engine missing when accelerator just beginning to be depressed. Any clues if the two are related?


your fault code is for Accelerator pedal position sensor/switch E high input. Your vehicle has a drive by wire throttle setup which means there is a wiring loom instead of a cable from the pedal to the engine and the pedal sensor is there to provide the engine ecu with the info of how much acceleration the driver is applying with his foot

I hear a cclicking noise when I step on break when key is on. I don't hear the click while car is running. Its a 97 infinity q45


Most automatics have a lock on the transmission selector.
When the vehicle is in P (Park) you are not able to select drive or a gear unless you depress the brake pedal.
My Audi Q7 ha a solenoid and you hear it click when I put my foot on the brake.
This solenoid stops you from accidentally selecting a gear without the brake depressed.

Is it a single click when you depress the pedal.
Or is it a constant click click click ?

1983 s10 blazer low rough idle and trys to die when starting have to give it a little gas and put it into drive real quick then when slowing down keep foot on gas pedal as i also slow down with break pedal


Could be several things, a vac leak, dirty throttle body, or faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by how much air enters the throttle body thru the valve.
Usually a vac leak would speed up the engine unless it is causing the rough idle.

Sounds to me like your brake booster is bad. Does the car still stop even though the pedal is hard when you step on it?If so that's most likely it

When slowing down the transmission feels as if it is jerking in to the next gear.


after checking fluid level is correct, try this, to see if it improves...
into drive,let car accelerate without any gas(do not touch pedal)to max speed (about 30/35mph).stop,then with 1/3rd gas pedal,accelerate to max speed(do not move foot)stop,then foot hard to floor,upto about 60mph,then stop.then only using a max of 1/3rd gas pedal,drive for about 15miles.you have just reset the drivetrain computer setings....the car is fitted with a computer controlled fuzzy logic gearbox,it will try to make you drive as eco as poss,but if used harshly the gearchange can be harsh up and down.....
if driven gently 4th will engage at 43 mph,with a slight clunk.
