Question about 1991 Peugeot 405

Peugeot 405 glx diesel saloon 1995

Hi,
Car is not pulling away in low gears like it used to. Seems like power is not getting through, engine revving and turbo kicking but nothing happening. not as fast or responsive in higher gears now, either. Have had longstanding glowplug prob too, if that helps.

Thanks,
Angela

Check the air flow meter, or hot wire meter as its sometimes called. it looks like a piece of plastic (T shaped ) plumbing with a wire poking out. its located between the air intake and the filter. Its usually made by Bosch.
Nearly all modern cars have one and its linked to the fuel management system. it controls the amount of fuel the engine recieves by measuring how much air is being pulled in. if its faulty, cracked or just old then it will give a false reading and ruin the perfomance of the engine and also fuel economy. If you take your car to your dealership they usually have a spare and will swap it out to try it. It's very difficult to check this component on its own and the engine may still run not showing up on a diagnosis check.
Try it and be prepared to be amazed.
I had the same problem..............Alex

wiki: ,see bold , I added.
The 405 was available as a 4-door only. Four-cylinder petrol engines included 65, 92, 110, 125, and 160 hp (48, 69, 82, 93, and 119 kW) units. A 1.8-litre diesel engine, with or without a turbo (70 and 90 hp (52 and 67 kW)) was added to the range during 1988 as was the 5-door estate.
the 405 ended in USA in 1991.
The 405 range included three petrol engines and two diesel engines, all four-cylinder with no 6-cylinder option, in a variety of states of tune and specification. The range was tailored to suit different export markets. The 1.6-litre saloon featured a low drag co-efficient of Cd=0.29, with other models varying up to Cd=0.33. The 1.4-litre (1,360 cc) engine was fitted with a four-speed manual gearbox. It produced 70 hp (52 kW) at 5600 rpm. The 1.6-litre (1,580 cc) engine was fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox and produced 92 hp (69 kW) at 6000 rpm. The 1.9-litre (1,905 cc) engine was available with a five speed manual gearbox, with an option of an automatic in the lower powered version.
The 8-valve version of the engine was available in two levels of tune; 110 hp (82 kW) or 125 hp (93 kW). A 16-valve version was available with the Mi16 model and this produced 160 hp (120 kW) at 6500 rpm and could reach a top speed of 220 km/h.[4]

you are labouring the engine too much for the engine power ,you must keep teh RPM up it is a diesel and they will not develop power like a petrol engine at low RPM ,always pull away in first gear anyway or you will burn the clutch out in no time

Peugeot 407, 2.0 litre diesel, 05,loss of power/air surge heard


I am not familiar with the 407 but I would think it is a HDi, if so what you describe is an air leak from a pipe from the pressure side of the turbo, I have had this on a Saab, in that case there was an over pressure switch under the dash and the pipe fell off. Look at the top of the engine, on the inlet side there will be a pipe from the inlet trunking or manifold, it should (maybe with a tee piece in there) go through the bulkhead

Hi i have a peugeot 405 diesel and the speedo


I had a similar problem with my old peugeot 405 diesel, something electrical was shorting and actually sparking in the engine compartment which in my case the garage fixed very easily. Same symptoms, the speedo flickered at low speeds but stopped at higher speed.
