    I have a pug 306 1.6 XS 1996 and its a pain in the arse!! when first
    starting the car it ticks over fine no problems. But as soon as it
    starts to get a little warm things start to happen, like irratic idle
    jumping between just under 1000 up to 2000. If i put the accelerator
    down to pull away the revs drop and the car stalls. after letting the
    car sit for a few minutes it starts and the revs
    settle?Hmmmmmmmmmmm....I took the car to peugeot but nothing showed up
    on the computer the technician was as usefull as a jelly leg...humminh
    and harring about what it could be but not actually giving me a
    straight answer, but still charged me for the privillage. I've change
    the Pentometre(throttle sensor) inlet air temp sensor, and replaced O
    rings in manifold. still no joy........also while driving along the
    car sometimes loses power but does'nt die just feels like its
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP.........anyone with a similar problem who
    has found the answer please let me know.

    I know nothing about cars, but my mate had a simular problem, which he
    resolved by cleaning the air filter / air intake, all the way down to the
    butterfly inlet valve.

    Sorry if this is no help at all.

    Try to change your battery. Although the car starts fine the battery might
    have a low voltage. I have had similar problems with my Peugeot 2.0 Cabrio
    1998 and after replacing the battery everything was fine.

    when this doesn t work, check the lambda sonde.

    I have the exact same car and the exact same problems it pisses me off too!

    So your saying that all this would come down to the simple fact of changing
    the battery to a more powerful 1?
    It makes sense I guess..
