Re-Booting Peugeot 106 XN

Hi all,

My parents have a 1998 Peugeot 106 XN 1.6 diesel. It has been sitting up for nearly 3 years now as when my sister got her own car, they transferred their insurance from the peugeot onto her car.

My question is: In order to get it back on the road again, what needs to be done?

From my own knowledge, battery, oil, tyres, timing belt, diesel (if you can call it that now ) flushed from the tank, all fluids checked, all rubber components checked.

What am I forgetting?

Yea I think all that isn't a bad idea.

I'd replace the brake fluid and check all the brake lines in addition to that.

As an aside was it not the 1.5 diesel?

They were great little diesels. A real miser on fuel

It's 1569cc or something like that! I have a feeling that it's going to cost a lot more than it's worth to get this going again.

There's a huge payoff for it being a miser on fuel....0 - 60 in 1.5 months, and it's the loudest engine ever put into a road car!

Bit of an update:

We didn't do anything to the car and jump-started it on saturday. Apart from a rough start and black stones under the exhaust tip, it ran unreal well

It was just the initial start-up that puffed out the black stuff. After that it was as clean as could be!

It's seriously economical but there's so little power it wouldn't pull the socks off a dead man! It takes weeks to get from 0-60 but then again it was built originally to be economical.

Just get better music or listen to more interesting radio shows! Do the filters and fluids will restore a little power probably.

How are the brake discs?

The sh!te radio in it is looking for an unlock code and we don't know what it is.

If you knew this car, you wouldn't say that about the filters haha
