405 grdt 1992

Post by Frotter » 18 Sep 2002, 04:02

Just bought nice 405 turbo diesl with a couple of oddities....
There is a hissing which builds with engine/turbo speed. I assume this is air pressure leaking from turbo somewhere. Seems to pull well though....Common fault?
T'other thing is the revcounter - it seems to swing wildly about only occasionally bothering to check whether or not it's in time with the engine. I can live with it but it's wierd!
Paid £420 for it at auction and seems really sweet other than niggles.
Should there be a remote for central locking on this car? I dont have one - would Pug dealer want heaps of quids for one?
Ta!

Check the rubber gasket between the intercooler and manifold and the pipes on the turbo.
Revcounter gets its info from a sensor in the bellhousing flange facing the back of the flywheel (above diff), could be dodgy or have dodgy wiring.
Yup Pug dealer will want one of your arm's for a remote, see if you can get one from a scrapper and try programming the reciever in the car with it, thas nowt to lose.
