    Default peugeot 405 sri ser 2 poor performance

    Hi All
    My 405 sri 2 litre 8 valve runs fine at lower throttle ...even at speed but had no power on hills and doesnt want to rev
    Well maintained manual 330000 ks
    Feels like its starving for fuel and pings a little...or is grossly retarded some how
    Any idead gratefully received
    Dave

    Might pay to check and if necessary replace the filters, especially the fuel and air filters. These could cause restrictions most noticeable at lower revs.

    You could also check your plugs. They may be old or incorrectly gapped

    In addition, ignition coil/module and catalytic converter. Does it run a bit warm currently?

    I'm with addo on this one. Check the muffler/cat isn't blocked.
