Peugeot 406 HDI GTX 2000 No Dip Headlights + Lack Of Power In Wet

Hello All. The car in question is the one in the summary a Peugeot 406 HDI GTX Estate - year 2000

I'm looking for some clues on a couple of problems with my Peugeot 406 HDI GTX.

1. I have no dip beam on either side. The full beam works fine as do the side and fogs. I've tried replacing the bulbs and fuses to no avail. Both went at the same time.
Someone has suggested that it's a problem with the light switch?

2. The engine runs fine, starts first time and ticks over no problem but if I hit a large puddle quick enough for water to spray up from the wheels or if I drive in especially wet/slushy conditions I suffer from a lack of power. At times I can only get say 40mph out of the car in any gear above 2nd. The engine also makes an muffled sound as if water has goteen into the air intake. Would this be the case and if so how...

Any help or suggestins would be greatly appreciated as I'm a little wary of taking it to a garage and getting stung with a masive bill which might be as much as the car is truly worth..

Cheers

Hi
Firstly these cars have a lot of issues with electrics, not bad but they dont like the wet.

1.If you have got either the air mass sensor or air mass meter Wet then they will not function correctly, you can somtimes clean these and they will work again.

2. The EGR Valve thats " Exhaust Gas Recycle'r" valve this re-uses the unburnt fuel and forces it back into the engine to burn again. modern cars depend on this with all the new emmissions laws, when these go you would be lucky to get 50mph and it would really struggle on hills, this fault can come and go, but normally you will get a yellow engine light, "although not always" again you may be able to clean this, worth a try.

3. the turbo could be at fault, but you can normally still drive the car fairly well. and it's quite obvious with a turbo when they go.

How much do you know about cars? if you know a little then checking these things is quite simple, let me know if you need more help.

Im fairly sure it is one of the above faults but really it is always better if I could see the car, hope this is helpful

Regards

Dan

p.s if you do go to hte garage mention the above parts!

Injectors


Injectors from the same ccm engine are most probably sounds same but to be on the safe side check not only the shape but code on the top of injector too. Because they are piezo effect injectors and set by the manufacture for a specific pressure for specific engine codes.
