  1. 1986 Peugeot 505 STI for sale in Las Vegas, NV. 125000 miles, 2.0 litre engine. The car runs, AC works but is a bit weak. Sunroof will not close completely. Dent at driver rear quarter panel where i was victim of hit and run. I think it can be hammered out.. Rear bumper on driver side pushed forward from same attack. Paint is well worn and she is covered in flat black plasiti-dip, which just peels off. Per local mechanic the "control bars" are badly rusted, the catalytic converter is coming apart inside and the rear calipers need to be replaced. Brian Holm says it is better to just rebuild the brakes and he has a caliper rebuild kit but it must be done carefully to preserve the integrity of the hand brake. The stock radio is gone. I put in a replacement which I would like to keep since it has a cd changer attachment. All outer door handles need replacement. The passenger mirror is sagging and both mirrors must be set manually as electric control stopped working. Be advised this was an East Coast (aka New Jersey) car. Been here in Las Vegas for 2 years now. We drove it out here without any issues. Cruise control is not functional. (Solenoid control broke.) MAKE ME AN OFFER.
  2. Hi Everyone > Lifelong Citroën fanatic, recently started getting into Peugeots. After resurrecting a 1975 604 last summer and letting it go on eBay in November, I went looking for my next project. Somehow I've ended up with two: a 1983 505 XN6 bucket of worms, and a 1986 505 Turbo with an unknown list of needs that would hopefully make a presentable driver. Considering it only cost me $400 and had a good set of tires, I figured I could at least break even just selling the wheels and tires to a vintage Subaru fan and scrapping the rest. Trouble is, the interior and body are really clean, and I'd feel horrible taking it the crusher. I'd like to keep it on the road, but I'm hoping for some input before getting too deep into the project. I finally had time to do some exploratory work yesterday, and found several issues. The car has been parked for two years or so since it stopped running. The fuel pump fuse was blown, but replacing it didn't get the car to start. It turned over and seemed like it wanted to catch, but never did. Radiator proved to be empty. I pulled the intercooler and found oil inside, and more in the up pipe along with what looked like coolant. Digging deeper, I found one of the spark plug wires detached and completely corroded. All of the hoses surrounding the turbo are pretty much toast. The turbo impeller is covered with corrosion, but there doesn't seem to be any axial play. The valve cover had clearly been leaking oil badly; two of the nuts holding it on weren't even tight. Once I pulled off the cover, I found sludge and coolant mixed with the oil in the cylinder head, but the timing chain and cam lobes look clean, so I think they've avoided long-term damage. I'm willing to put $500-600 into getting this car going again, but I really don't want to go beyond that. It's an automatic with 115k, and a nicer looking one from California with leather and a thousand-dollar head unit just went for $1799 on eBay a few days ago. Would a new set of seals be enough to fix the turbo, or does the corrosion on the impeller imply that it's beyond saving? Can I find replacements for the dry/cracked hoses? Do the parts and machine shop work add up to more than the car would be worth in running condition? Thanks for any input, Karl http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/345-peugeot505turbo1/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/344-peugeot505turbo2/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/343-peugeot505turbo3/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/342-peugeot505turbo4/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/341-peugeot505turbo5/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/340-peugeot505turbo6/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/339-peugeot505turbo7/ http://www.505turbo.com/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/338-peugeot505turbo8/
  3. Let's start with the ugly: the Cylinder head is failing. It is almost certainly cracked, and it is leaking. It would be nice to keep it in the family, so I'm posting this here first. I've owned this 1986 Peugeot 505 N9Te wagon for over 14 years. It's my second 505 (the 1983 STI was driven away at 220,000 miles) and it has served as a luxury car and a hauler of astonishing loads. The problem is that I'm going through another episode of life changes, and just don't want to do the mechanical work on another car. And the last Peugeot mechanic in the Bay Area is an hour away by car - and 2-3 hours by transit for pick up. This is an entirely rust-free vehicle (no surface corrosion, bubbles or "spots"); it was first sold and always kept in the semi-arid regions of California. No damage, dents or holes. It retains a beautiful, blue interior with supple leather, all athe carpeting, and dashboard are intact. All insturments and lights work. What else? I'm asking $2000 Who am I?

  4. I bought a 1986 Peugeot 505 S (Late 1985 chassis) and I can't get it to idle. Cleaned all grounds and connections, changed most light bulbs, checked crank sensor and few other sensors, checked relays, checked fuses, checked auxiliary air valve, tightened all hoses and checked for leaks, cleaned air system, checked distribution rotor by taking it entirely apart, looked at two spark plugs, checked vacuum systems, checked fuel system (replaced fuel pump and filter even). Replaced ECM with a 0280 800 056 recommended by RockAuto.com, OE: 0280 800 066 core (swapped both in and out multiple times testing). Engine is good with no white stuff inside the engine.

  13. So, I'm finally a Peugeot owner. I just picked up a 1986 505 Turbo-GL Edition with the 4SPD Auto(previously owned by one of the forum members). I haven't really done anything yet to the car besides giving it a new battery and a good wash. Any tips or tricks or any sort of other useful information you could give me would be very much appreciated!
