Generally the cause of an electrical component to fail is high heat or extreme voltage load. Is the coil pack and module getting too hot from the heat of the engine ? Is it shorting out because of oil or wet surfaces ? Could you be loosing voltage to the module from the key switch ? Are you loosing ground signals from the computer ?
If you can get the car to Orielly's or Autozone they will check the OBD1 system for free to help you fix the problem.
This sounds like the fuel is not burning in the combustion chamber due to a lack of spark, excess fuel and smoke. On vehicles with a coil pack for every cylinder you would replace the coil pack but on your vehicle you have two coil packs, one for each side. If a coil pack is bad this would cause your problem (left or right). The auto parts people should be able to help you further, but I think this is the problem. (I had a similar problem).
Did you check for spark? It sounds like you're not getting spark. Check for spark. If you are not getting spark then it sounds like you might have to replace the coil packs. Is it running a L4 engine? If its running a standard chevy L4 its probably the coil packs. Try to replace them check again for spark.
Sounds like a faulty starter solenoid or bad starter.Take a hammer and tap on the center of the starter housing while someone else tries to start it.If it starts then its your starters bendix that is bad in the starter. Make sure your wheels are chocked.
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..
