Hi,
I'm looking at buying a 2000 model 306 XT (2.0 petrol) and test drove it today. Once the car had warmed up the temperature sat on about 2/3 of the way up the gauge (about 100 degrees from memory). What's the normal temperature for these cars to run at?
Also, I've driven two of these cars and both have really sticky clutches, that are hard to press in and don't spring back under my foot. Is that normal and if not can it be fixed?
Thanks very much
Rohan

Hi and welcome to the forum :thumb:

the temperature sounds a bit on the high side,did you hear the cooling fan switch on at all? As for the clutch it sounds as though the cable is beginning to stick,peugeot gears can sem to be a bit 'sticky'. How many miles on the clock?

I didn't notice the cooling fan, but maybe only because I wasnt listening for it.

Its done 120,000 km, and the logbook shows that its been serviced every 15K.

Could someone perhaps please post a photo of their temp gauge once the car has warmed up? Then I would know whether it was too hot - i just cant remember the layout of the gauge.

Thanks for your help mate

A full service history is always a good sign,especially when it has been serviced so regularly. Good luck with the car should you go ahead with it.
