Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Other Peugeot Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 230000 miles
First thing: great site. With this site, your helping a lott of people.
My peugeot 106 1.5 Diesel wont start without a little bit of extra help. The engine runs fine (like a dream), when I can get it to run.
It is a simple car, without much electronics. The diesel pump hasn't got electronics, but is belt-drivin. It hasn't got a pump in the gastank.
glow plugs are replaced
car battery is new
there were air bubbles in the fuelsystem after replacing the fuelfilter, but I can't see any airbubbles anymore.
I found out that there are 2 things I can do to help start the engine in an instance.
1: squeezing the fuel handpump 2, 3 times
2: 3, 4 times " for ignition" will also help
Does anyone know the answer? My dealer isn't able to sort it out.
Thanks a million
