406 erratic idle and poor drivability

Post by Stevie Callaghan » 16 Nov 2003, 14:47

Hello, anyone got any ideas what may be causing my 406 2.0 auto (2000) to have erratic/high idling? it only happens every couple of days but it also drives jerky when this happens. If I stop and re-start then the problem goes away. I really dont want to go to Peugeots and line their already bulging pockets! Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Correction. Now does it all the time and gearchange up and down then becomes terrible. Revs at idle between 1100-2500. Water temp OK, car does it hot or cold. HELP, Peugeot dealer looming!
