Hello Oga Ikenna, just bought Nigerian used 406 v6 auto recently. It is showing sport and snow blinking which I suppose its the gear box problem. The owner told me I needed to only change the automatice gearbox and everything will be ok. However I drove the car like that from Lagos to Abuja like that (I must confess 406 v6 is a beast on the road). On coming to Abuja I took the car to a mechanic and he remove the thermostat (NOTE: he removed only the casing not the whole thermostat which I still have with me - can it be fixed or I have to buy the whole thermostat again). I must confess since the thermostat was remove it has been drinking fuel like crazy.
Then just yesterday I started seeing engine diagnostic light/check engine light on the dashboard. I also experience difficult start in the morning or when the engine is cold. I have to crank several times before the engine starts in the morning.
Please Ikenna can you help? I have also spent a lot on this car changing one or two things. And I hope you won't charge me a lot in order to get my 406 back to life when I take it to you.

You have to bring the lion to me for proper diagnosis. And yes, my charges are not cheap. But you still have the option to keep taking it to mechanics that have been abusing the lion or introducing more problems like you & your mechanic have done already (starting with thermostat removal) & end up turning the lion to your nightmare. I am an option to you. What you choose to do with it is up to you.
You can reach me on this line: 08095721703.

Ikenna351:Ikenna I seriously want to commend ur expertise and professionalism when it comes to lion repairs and diagnosis. But it doesn't mean u have to chase ur intending customers with words like "my charges are not cheap" I feel u shud rather advise them to come for proper diagnosis, and after that they will be much more willing even to pay more than u have charged. On the other hand if you are having too much customers, you can groom some some graduates without job just like gazuzz so that we can have a copy of ikenna 135 in the west and probably in the east. One love.

This is what a Brabus C450 sounds like!
If you think your car is packing something under the hood...sit down, be humble and watch the clip

I need your candid advice on this. I've got to travel tomorrow with a peugeot 406. Journey is about 440km. Car was very alright until the timing belt cut off which destroyed the valves. After replacement of the parts, the car started sounding like a grinding machine. Kazeem said engine was dead cos the car was emitting white smoke, we opt for new piston rings and the smoking was curbed. Grinding sound can still be heard though it drives smooth. The top cylinder is the culprit said the kazeem, we bought one and mine was better so I'm still using it. I decided to use the car like that until I get to mx to source a new cylinder. What I wanna know is, will the car travel that far (440km). Is it advisable to embark on such journey? Thanks in anticipation for your candid advice
Note: car is a daily driver and have been in use after the rings replacement (a week ago)

Some Valve springs could stay stuck or move badly when pistons and valves meet during timing belt failure on an engine like yours. If the springs were not removed and serviced before reinstalling new valves, engine sound would change to what you are experiencing.
When people choose to buy used valves which probably were straitened, you could get same engine sound.
Since I don't know the full state of your engine, aside the sound, I can't comment on if its safe to do the trip with.
Watch the video I am about to post below, which addressed changing of piston rings you talked about. It may give you some clarity.

|Re: Peugeot: Cars With Attitude! by mammanbawa: 8:40pm On Nov 17|
Thanks a lot sir. Engine runs smooth apart from that sound. Car was serviced today and tank filled to the brim. I'll get the valves straightened on arrival, if need be they'll be replaced and straightened before use. Thanks once again!

Finally, I embarked on the journey and it was smooth by God's grace. Lion will be dropped for the meantime before engine replacement. I'm considering doing an upgrade from the stock 2.0 i4 to a v6 similar to yours (if it's advisable). A korean SUV will be the daily driver for now. Though car started emitting white smoke halfway through the journey.

Recently, someone contacted me on WhatsApp from Nairaland in search of Peugeot 207 engine thermostat housing (removed probably from VTi engine). If you can read this, send me the Lion's VIN on WhatsApp, to confirm if the part number i have now for sale is the same with yours, if you are still looking for it.
