Freeze plug, head gasket, hose to the heater core. You have to get back there and look.

    Forget about the freeze plug, they're there to help prevent damage if the collant freezes. You found the leak which is what you needed to do. Can you trace the waterline from the leak to see where it goes? You need to be able to explain what part you need so you can obtain a replacement.

Coolant drain plug location

If you can't find the drain plug, maybe there isn't one. Put a container under the hose you need to change. Undo the clips at each end and pull the hose off one end. Point the loose end of the hose so the coolant goes into the container you put under the car. Replace the hose with the new one, do the clips up and then pour the coolant back in to the system (IF it is clean and not full of bits of dirt etc!) If it is dirty, then use clean water and antifreeze to make a 50 / 50 mixture and fill the system with that. Be careful not to pour the mixture in too quickly or you will make an air lock in the system.

My heater in my peugeot 206 gti is on constantly..tried changing the climate control unit but it has made no difference...any ideas?. thanks :)

According to the Peugeot dealer the 206 gti thermostat resistor is embedded in the heater blower fan, so the blower fan must be replaced ( Supplied VIN # for confirmation). However the how to remove the blower is the subject of many discussions on every 206 site. Some say turn blower clock wise, anti clock wise, remove hex screw, don't remove screw. So I am still waiting for a sure answer, I picked up a blower (second hand) but the old blower wont budge, clock or anti , someone suggested to try brute force like with a hammer, I am not game to do that, but I may have to.

What's the prob with my Vw Gti vr6, when I used

most coolant stop leaks will not work with anti-freeze at all,only clear water only. please read the label on the product and follow it to the letter.most stop leaks will not work under extreme conditions,such as a bad water pump or missing water pump belt,or bad thermostat. with common leaks along the radiator SEAMS they may help some. please seek a mechanic soon,you can damage your engine without proper coolant in it. which can lead to an engine replacement. where the steam is coming from is where your coolant leak is. it may only be a bad or faulty hose. a simple pressure tester rented from auto-zone or avanced automotive will reveal your leak.please follow the instructions with the rental equipment,and you will find the leak in the coolant system quickly. thank you for choosing

I have a peugeot 206 gti the clutch has gone but the car wont start now i was told it had a safety thing on it to stop it starting until its fixed is this right and how can i over ride it?

i have been fixing peugeots for 12 years and never heard anything like that.
it is mrer then likley a faulty crank position sensor, coil pack or quite simply the fuel cut off switch needs resetting which should be located under the bonnet on the n/s (black unit with a red rubber top) just press the top and try starting the car..

if this helps let me know

91 gti 8valve overheating problem blows coolent smoke on the..

I'm not familiar with your model to know if you have an engine temp guage or a light that would come on if the engine is overheated. You said the motor wasn't overheating under the hood... but you have an overheating problem? Maybe just a tad bit more info...
Are you losing coolant?
The water pump if bad, would probably leak or make terrible racket.
Just to take a shot at it, since you said it blows smoke through the dash... I'm assuming a kindof white smoke with a rather sweet smell? Have you noticed any wetness on the passenger floor at all? If yes to any of this, I would suspect as you mentioned, a leaking heater core. Hope this helps... Good luck!

Check the alternator belt for proper tension. Also check alternator voltage output. If output is low the rest of the systems can fail.
