    1994 peugeot has no compression , garage have suggested scrapping the car to me but they will keep the car for the apprentice to
    practise on

    should i bite the bullet and get the work done or is it not worth it ?

    advice welcome

    if the car didnt overheat and blow the head gasket then i would change
    it and do the cam belt at the same time ..... if you have any idea
    about engines you'll know if the engine has overheated the head may be
    warped so if it is repaired make sure the garage have the head checked
    and skimed if needed ..... also the garage would say scrap the car it
    only takes a few hours and 30 quids worth of bits and they have a 405
    to sell ........at the end of the day if its a nice car and you like
    it get it done if its showing its age and your feeling a bit suspect
    about the next mot get rid ........hope this has been of some help

    405 overheat? , mine was fixed. normally the heat sensors will triggered at 90°C, its to near from 100°C, so.. what you need is just a single RESISTOR 220 Ohms, cut on of the sensors cable.. and bridge it with 220 ohms resistor.
    and it will triggered at 80°C, and cooling fan will turn.. so its more safe..

    Funkadelik, you are replying to a 19 year old thread !! I’m sure that 405 is long gone now. Ha Ha
