Hi, A search engine on the website will help in getting questions or answers to specific problems. I bought a dead Peugeot 2.8HDI Boxer which just cranks without starting. The owner says it stood after an engine overheat due to him driving it with no water in the radiator. He replaced the engine parts but could not start it, hence him selling it. Please help. Ghangs

Under the bonnet you should find a plastic cover with a + positive symbol on it which is for the live battery lead. Flip up the cover and attach the + cable from your booster battery to the terminal. Connect the negative - lead from your booster battery to anywhere on the engine. Hugh from City of Glasgow

I have a 2014 peugeot boxer motorhome diesel engine I have an intermittant starting problem. plenty of power in battery but wont fire up if towed for short distance approx 12 ft and jump start it will start first time and then ticks over and runs no problem it is still under warranty have taken it into dealer three times but because its running they cant find the fault unless it is not running faulted. but I have to get it started to get it to them. as its 23 ft long it turns over no problem but wont fire up its like there is no fuel getting to the engine but there is.could it be the plugs or the fuel pump

Answers

What voltage have you got at the battery before you try to start it? Have you experimented by spraying some 'easy start' (I prefer the Aussie name for it - Start You Bast##rd) down the air intake and trying to start it? Mick from Portugal

Thanks mick for the tip called out the AA and he did what you said with the easy start spray down the air intake exactly what you said and it started right away not sure how to check the voltage on the battery the dealer fitted a new battery the first time it happened but there seems to be plenty of power in the battery I use a cut-off switch when Im not using the motorhome to save the power in the battery thanks again Paul p steward from Greater Manchester

The fact easy start got it fired up would get me looking at the cold start sensor and injector (burst of extra fuel for starting - easy start is a burst of highly inflammable fuel) or the glow plugs (heat the combustion chamber to aid starting from cold, aren't usually active when starting a hot engine) and then the crank position sensor. You can check the battery voltage with a multi-meter but as easy start worked there's no need to do it now. Mick from Portugal

Answer this question

Duncan Brierley, Lancashire

Peugeot Boxer

Need to replace the Brake Servo, because I had a faulty EGR Pipe that cracked when in France. A garage patched it up, but it ended up melting the fluid reservoir and Cam Belt top cover. Managed to obtain replacement parts but even though I have removed the master cylinder and vacuum pipe, the Brake Pedal Clevis Pin and the 4 nuts that secure the Servo to the Bulk Head inside the van, but it is stuck. I cant lever it away, Ive made a PULLING BRACKET that fixed onto the Master Cylinder studs and tried to pull it away using a heavy duty ratchet strap, and tried to knock the studs with a copper mallet. ANY IDEAS PLEASE ?

Answers

Have you disconnected the clevis pin that secures the brake rod to the brake pedal and undone the nuts securing the pedal bracket (4 nuts around where the brake rod enters the vehicle interior)? Mick from Portugal

Sorry, I just re-read your question to see you have done all that already except for removing the pedal bracket itself (which needs to be done, the air cleaner also needs to be removed). Have you tried running a sharp knife between the servo and the bulkhead to cut any mastic sealant that might have been used between the two faces. Mick from Portugal

The Air Filter is on the other side of the vehicle, so i don't think i need to touch that, but I did not realise that i would need to remove the pedal bracket. I will have a go in the morning. Thanks for your help Mick. Duncan Brierley from Lancashire

WHAT A BLOODY JOB. From the advice from Mick, I removed the o/s lower dash facia panel to gain access to the Pedal Bracket. I could not believe my eyes when I found that behind the Pedal Bracket, there are 4 more nuts and then another 2 to remove from the engine compartment, located higher up from the servo. Then I had to remove the EGR Pipes and Valve and the o/s engine mounting in order to lower the engine to allow the servo to be pulled out. Took ages. However, its all back together. ONE POINT, when lifting the Pedal Bracket away in order to gain access to the 4 nuts behind, I recommend to remove the plastic stop light switch as it would get damaged. Hope this helps others. Duncan Brierley from Lancashire

Thanks for posting the solution, so many don't bother which doesn't help others. Mick from Portugal

hi mick, the engine cuts out when turning on the headlights or main beam, but not everytime. Also it starts immediately after cutting out.

Answers

In that case I'd be thinking along the lines of there being some sort of voltage spike causing the ECU to throw a hissy fit. I don't know what the exact cause would be but I'd start by changing the light switch on the grounds that it wouldn't be too expensive and it is in effect the thing that causes the problem to manifest. Mick from Portugal

Should have said try changing the relay first (even cheaper). Mick from Portugal
