Does this engine have a timing chain or a belt. Also how can I find out what brake horse power this engine is, and finally is the engine and gearbox oil the same or are they separate. The engine is the 2.2 diesel 2014 model fitted to an Elddis motor home. Thanks in advance.

Answer this question

Mike Jones, Gloucestershire

Peugeot Boxer

I have a 1.9 diesel non turbo 270S short wheelbase van. I am pretty conversant with the engine, having replaced head gasket after skimming head and replaced clutch in the past on the same engine. This vehicle has never been a problem, and after a perfectly fine trip to London, refuses to start. The engine turns over fine and when loosening off the fuel input to the injection pump and using the priming bulb, the fuel is plentiful to that point. Heater relay works fine, all the heater plugs are OK, and the voltage arrives at the plugs for the duration of the timer. All this suggests a problem with the solenoid stop valve. The trouble is, I can't find it. there are 3 wires going into one end of the fuel pump furthest from the timing belt, and a single wire going to a small cylindrical unit located under, but not attached to, the pump. It has a single small pipe running from it to the fuel pump, not an inlet and outlet as would be expected on a solenoid valve, though it is attached at the end of the pump close to where the fuel enters. I can find no information about this any where and would be glad if anyone can throw some light on this. There is no engine management system on this engine.

Answer this question

Robert Hewlett, Aberdeenshire

Peugeot Boxer

I have just had a towbar fitted. I now find that when I connect a trailer the sound of the indicator repeater changes from the normal click-click sound to a higher pitched beeping. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and if not what may be causing the change. As far as I know the wiring to the 7 pin socket does not run through a relay.

Answers

It's a legal requirement when towing to have a visual or audible signal that the trailer indicators are working. You have an audible one fitted, if it doesn't beep when indicating you know there's a problem. chris from Cambridgeshire

My Boxer is a Equitrek 4tonne two horse lorry. When driving it with a horse in there is a problem with the speed limiter in that you climb up the speed and it pulls back at you as if it has reached the limiter speed (90km/hr or 58 mph). Though you are only driving between 39-50 mph. It doesn't do it without a horse in though!! Garage has replaced the speed recorder sensor but the problem remains! Any ideas??

Year 1999 Boxer Petrol MWB Motorhome. Radiator Fan Supply Failure. / Petrol Pump Fuse Postion I have lost the 12v supply to the single fan on the radiator. Reads about 4v suggesting bad / corroded supply. The fuse for this does not seem to appear on the glove box fuse diagram ( only the heater fan ) Can anyone help in locating this fuse or indeed from where the 12v is taken off and fed to the radiator fan. I have checked out a few other fuses located under bonnet bur no luck as yet. If all else fails I will have to wire in another fused but continuously on 12v supply to this unit. As an aside if your Boxer petrol pump appears to fail then first check the fuse... mine.. surprise , surprise is located hanging in the wiring loom , under the bonnet close to the airfilter asy. also there is a red fuse holder in this location also which I have yet to discover why its there. However any help in locating fan radiator fuse / supply line much appreciated.

Answers

Since posting question I have solved it. Radiator fan fuse 30 A is mounted in a very difficult to get at position in a green holder with a black cover / clip just above battery and alongside a multi point battery junction point. Peter from Devon

Hi, I have just lost my passenger side electric / heated wing mirror in a minor accident and are having problems locating the wiring 'plug'. Has anybody got an idea where it might be located? The van is a Peugeot Boxer 2004 290 MWB Diesal. The mirror was ripped away leaving a broken 'mount' plus the loose wiring. I presume when I buy a new mirror there will be a connector on the end of the wiring to attach to the one on the van........if only I could find it! Do I have to take the plastic door bits off? I would be really grateful for any help! Thanks in advance...
