hi, i have a 2001 peugoet 206 1.4 engine, when startin the car the idle usually heads up to around 2500 rpm, then comes down and sits at around 1100 rpm, on coming down it stutters at around the 2000 rpm, the car surprising drives well, apart from when stoping at a junction the idle moves at between 1500 rpm to around 2200 rpm, any ideas on this, has been to 2 seperate car garages who are out of ideas, so far have replaced all the fault codes which were lamba sensor, fuel injector number 4, and also the idle cont valve has been changed, and yet still the same. any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Have you swapped the Air reg? Sometimes if this is faulty it can cause those issues..

The temperature thermsistor is faulty, thats the one fitted to the engine block where the hose somes out to go to the top of the radiator, it is brown in colour. Some times it is just a matter of releasing the spring clip, pulling off the connector and cleaning the contacts with WD40. otherwise its just a simple operation to unscrew it and replace it with new. A new one will cost you about 15 quid, but if you go to a Peugoet garage to get it changed it will cost you about 90 quid.

yeh, could be thermo - best bet is to try. The Air Reg is a valve that has a wire coming from it on the top of your engine - the air block

This link shows you what to look for.

Any parts place will have one or order one for you, try googling Peogeut Spares. You simply unscrew the brown sensor and screw in the new. takes less than 5 minutes.

Might be worth cleaning the Idle air control valve (IAC) in the inlet manifold on the top of the engine to one side. Clean with a carburettor cleaner.

Or you may have an air leak into the inlet manifold through a cracked rubber pipe.

I think a previous thread on this forum (206 1.4 auto idle issue) talked about a 206 with similar problem and it was the purge valve sticking open. After 48 posts!

Hi scojototo,

I'm the guy that had the same issue with my wife's 206. Was in the dealers three times and turned out to be the purge valve.

The purge valve is located in the right-hand corner of the engine bay, behind the coolant expansion tank. Part was 17 from peugeot.

I didn't fit it, so can't really help much. Might be able to do it yourself with the help of a haynes manual.

Regards

Peter

Usually mounted on or beside a small black cylindrical tank. It will have small black vacuum pipes and wires going into it. Takes the fumes from the petrol tank and allows the engine to take them in at the correct time.


But if unsure ask someone (maybe the breaker or main dealer where you will get a good valve). A 206 Haynes manual may not be that dear on E-Bay.

just off the fone from peugeot says the part was 45 pounds, he classed it as a depollution canister, would this be the right name for the purge valve, thanks
