When I start my Peugeot 106, it will idle fine, but if I give gas it will stall. If I give just a bit of gas, after about 20 seconds the engine starts to run properly. I unmounted and cleaned the Throttle body and the Idle air control valve, but the problem is still exactly the same.

here are some things I noticed:

  1. Happens just in hot days and when car was turned off for hours
  2. A couple of times I had random erratic idle episodes

I think it is a problem with the MAP sensor or the Throttle position sensor but I don't know how to test it and I would like not to buy random parts.

Car model: Peugeot 106 1.1 TU1JP (HFX)

  • @Rhinoted: To "give gas" sounds odd to me - false friend? Are you from Germany? I may be mistaken though, not a native speaker myself ...
