Question about 1991 Peugeot 405
Please ignore the description, it didn't list my car, which is a Peugeot 306HDi yr 2000 and I have problems with it losing power when i'm driving along at 30-50mph. Started fine this morning but then it kept losing power on way to work and then when I came to a steep hill, i nearly didn't make it up!
It's most likely the EGR Valve, "Exhaust Gas Recycler Valve" when they start to go you lose loads of power especailly at 30-50 and on hill's
Is the engine light or any lights on the dash?
EGR Valves are about £130 you can fit them your self also.
Somedays it wil not do it at all other days you can barely drive the car.
Worth mentioning you may be able to clean it, so have a go before buying a new one. Use carb cleaner and spray it all over it, dont be shy, you cant damage it. dry it off and re-fit it that cures it then you should be ok, but be aware it may fail over the coming months.
Hope this helps, if not get back to me for more info.
It could be a few things but your description is so presise I would say it's The EGR.
