Hi there

Had a problem with my peugeot 106 for a few months. When the car first starts up it keeps cutting out (if not revved) but once warmed up, doesnt seem to have a problem. The other issue is that Occasionally the car tries to rev itself when first starting up, and therefor cant drive it untill it stops revving itself.

A mate of mine tried tightening the revs cable, as he thought it might be cutting out due to it not ticking over properly, which helped slightly, but funnily enough, this seemed to increase the amount of times my car tends to rev itself when first starting up.

I have no clue about cars unfortunately, and am a bit wary about taking it to a garage as ive been riped off in the past for minor problems. If anyone has any feedback that would be great, thanks

firstly have the speedo cable returned to how it was and get hold of some pt[etrol treatment called 10k boost this will cost about £20 but it will sort the problem out for you as there will be a build up of varnish film inside the throttle body and follow the intructions correctly and your car will run like it should again

You don't say what size engine it is,but your fault is very similar to one i have on a 1.4 1994 single point injection ,i also have the engine management light flashing on when driving and the revs sometime increase when warm as well as cold
i have pluged mine in to a diagnostic unit and it has come up with the throttle position switch faulty
i took mine off and cleaned it and at the moment the problems seems to have been rectified
hope this helps

I think I am having the same problem and the garage has been unable to work out what is wrong as it is an intermittent problem.

I will see if they can try this and hope it works.

THank you
