Peugeot 406 - Starting issue
Hey guys and girls, looking for some advice on a Peugeot 406 1800cc from 1999 its done about 86k.
Been a great car but lately there seems to be a problem starting it. Turn it over and it will try to fire . Turn it over with a bit of throttle and it will start up, but as soon as you let off the gas it starts to sound like a misfire then dies.
Once the car has done about a mile or so its absolutely fine and if you start it up after a short rest its fine, but after a couple of hours it still struggles!
I know a little about mechanics but not a huge deal, I thought perhaps there is a leak in a fuel line, which when it isnt used causes a leak in the fuel line and thus fuel starvation. Dont think its a blocked fuel filter as it would struggle to run normally, or electrical as again it would always show this problem.
Also with my head under the bonnet earlier, it did sound like an air hose or something might be cracked as it did sound like there was too much air being sucked in, but i cant see anything suspect.
Any advice would be greatfully recieved, just trying to get an idea of what it could be so i can plan on fixing or getting someone else to do it!
