    Default Urgent help for newbie! should i have a airflow meter?!

    hey guys found your site on google! just brought myslef a pug!


    its a bit loud and in your face but a giggle to drive! i have a problem tho! i took it for the mot and it failed the emmisions test. the co2 level should be about 1.5% and no more than 3.5 and its up at 11.5!! now i dont know much about the french engines i have allways delt with vauxhall(opel/holden) but it looks to me if there has been a airflow meter removed but i have the co2 adjuster on a plate and the airflow meter i try'd doesnt fit! anyhelp would be great! im wantin to get her sorted asap!

    Icon14 cable

    that cable in your hand looks like the one that is connected up to one of peugeot`s machines to do A DIAGNOSTICS test on the car.

    Hi,

    The car would not run without some way of determining air flow & I assume it does somehow, either by an air flow meter or map (manifold pressure) sensor. Has it had an aftermarket engine managment system fitted? These usually run a map sensor & could be all set up wrong (to pass the mot test anyway ).

    Hi chief....

    your missing airflowmeter is part of the missing airbox......

    I would convert to MAP sensor.... to correct the mixture... plus you will get more power..... if you want more info on this let me know...

    P.s ,,frogger's you can do this on 205GTi's too...

    Default Urgent help,airflow meter?

    Could it be a faulty air temp, coolant temp sender* or coolant thermostat?
    The CO reading of 11% is high even if these are faulty. Could your pod air filter be clogged or damp?
    The square silver fitting between the air filter and manifold, could this be an air flow sensor. There is no map or air flow meter visible in the pics.

    One of the reasons I bailed out of the trade was because of the constant changes in efi systems. This old brain could only grasp so much!

    Interesting colour, I bet that sat in the showroom for an age?

    *This should read, "coolant temp sensor" for the injection system.

    Just on a different note, I presume this is a Ryton assembled 405? My 405 has a MOTA sticker on the passenger-side strut top, whereas this has a MOMH sticker.

    I'm curious as to what these stickers refer to?

    I was going to second the paint code, Lee, but I've changed my mind

    I'm guessing it's the trim code. Paint codes tend to have numbers in them.
