Hey Dee ann==Not simply idleing the engine. If you had an extra load on it to cause it to overheat this could cause it. GoodluckJoe

Check your battery for loose connections and check your alternator.

It will be mounted behind the battery where the head lights are. It could be on the fender where the battery is.

There could be a glitch on the computer in the vehicle. There could also be a ground in the wiring harness that goes to the gauge lights.

you have one or more cylinders not firing causing imbalance. check for spark at each cylinder.

is your "NO CHARGE" warning light coming on? if not this could simply be the problem, on some vehicles the charging circuit incorperates the "NO CHARGE" bulb and if its blown the vehicle wont charge. COuld be an alternator problem ( worn bushes etc) or faulty earth lead from alternator.

There are many reasons why your car might vibrate while it is idling. It could be running too hard for example.

There could be several reasons that your 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck, will not accelerate and idles rough. The most common reason is a plugged fuel line.

This could also be alternator problems as in a bad diode in the alternator.

It could if the battery was so weak as to not be providing enough voltage to run the engine. But if that were the case you could not rev the engine without it missing badly. Drive to your nearest auto parts store and they will be happy to check your charging system free of charge.

Could be the heat shield on the catalytic converter May be a bad bearing in one of the belt driven accesories i.e. Water pump Alternator Belt tensioner Idler pulley etc.

A bad coolant temperature sensor is one thing that could cause an idling speed problem with a Peugeot 406. There could also be a problem with the idle control valve.

You need to be sure you have a good clean ground. Check for the proper voltage from the relay.
