Sometimes when I try to start the engine of my Peugeot Boxer all I hear is a dull click when the key is turned. The engine will then usually start on the second or third turn of the key, but occasionally more attempts are necessary. The battery is good. Does anyone know what`s wrong? (Auto Sleepers 2.5)

Answers

Hi, there is a dead spot on the starter armature, a temporary cure is to give the starter body a good smack with a hammer, this nearly always works. Ken Edwards from England

Hi there. I have a Peugeot Boxer van 08 and I think I need to change the glow plugs. Could anyone tell me whereabouts on the engine these could be located? The van smokes a lot from cold until it warms up, could this be a glow plug related problem? Also there is a slight diesel knock and there also seems to be an intermittent boosting problem when under load up to 2500 rpm. The van has done 123,000 miles. Thanks. (2.2 hdi professional)

Answers

The glow plugs heat the fuel as it enters the engine to help with starting in cold weather. If the engine has to turn over quite a lot before starting then one or more of the glow plugs may be faulty and the smoke. If white it will be unburnt fuel. If the smoke is black it will be more than likely engine wear. There are a few causes for diesel knock, one of them being cheap fuel, Tesco used to be particularly bad. Try Shell or Esso and see if there is any difference. Relay 2.2hdi from Cornwall

I have a T reg. Peugeot Boxer motorhome and when driving back from Spain through France recently I found that it would not stay in fifth gear but kept on slipping out. I managed to get home in fourth. Can you tell me what the problem is? (Motorhome)

Answers

The fifth gear is an add on to the end of the gearbox. After standing a while the oil drains and you can get premature wear of the gear. Since it is an add on it is relatively simple to buy a new gear kit to replace. Videos to do this can be found on YouTube or inexpensively at local garage. Toby from England

I had the same trouble, your 5th gear linkage has gone. I got mine sorted for around £300. Keith Morgan from Worcestershire

My Peugeot Boxer`s starter battery gets charged when running but no charge when hooked up to 230 volts. I can hear relay pulling in when switched to the van battery but nothing at the battery? (motorhome)

Answers

You don’t give many details but it is not uncommon for the van battery not to be charged by 230v and the house battery to be charged. This is the case on my Pilote MH on a Boxer chassis. The charger often has a seperate circuit with fuses for the van battery so start there. Toby from England

Hi. I was wondering if anyone can help me? I was just about to set off at night in my Peugeot Boxer, started my engine and found that I had no lights. I checked the main fuse which was fine. After coming to a conclusion that they might have blown, this was the problem, both had gone. Luckily I had one spare to get me home. After a couple of days I set off again at night and once again the one I had put in had blown again. Could anyone tell me what the problem could be please as the van has done only 40,000 miles, that`s nothing for a diesel van? Please help!! Regards.

Answers

If you bought it in Chapel en le frith at Sunseeker you have bought a load of trouble. I made him an offer as I knew many things were wrong with it. But yours might not be that camper. I have a 2000 harmony and that is giving me similar problems that no one can seem to pin point. You will just have to try to eliminate it the best way you can. I have tried injectors, a map sensor and now an idle control valve. It is a nightmare. Now I will be sending the E.C.U. for testing. Vincent Caira from Yorkshire

I had this problem with my Peugeot Boxer autotrail Cheyenne motorhome. I sent the ecu off, and the injectors tested along with a complete service and sent it to a good garage was a little expensive but they found that one of the pipes had a leak allowing too much oxygen, I also found on a site to find out where the leak is spray lighter gas on each pipe and if engine revs high there’s your leak.

There are 2 relays under the bonet to the right of the battery. One for the fridge, one for the rest of the electrics in the back. The crimps on the end of the wires corrode and come off the relay bases. New crimps (and possibly new relay bases) will sort this out. Ashley from England

I recently fixed an oil leak on my Peugeot Boxer motorhome. Whilst doing this I had to remove the starter motor. I fixed the leak and refitted the starter motor but when I recorded it the motorhome wouldn’t start. I found that the main cable in the motorhome had become loose so I tightened it back up and it started fine. Since then I have noticed that my central locking doesn’t work and neither do my electric windows. Are these two problems linked and does anyone have a solution? Many thanks in advance. N.B. I’ve already checked every fuse and found nothing. (Motorhome)

Hi, can anyone help with my Peugeot Boxer 2.8 Hdi? My fuel injector light came on while driving so I switched the engine off, but since then it hasn`t started since. My Peugeot dealer can`t fix it. I replaced the fuel filter, all injectors have been checked, a new transponder and aerial have been fitted and both sensors have been changed. Peugeot say it doesn`t have a key code and diesel is getting to the fuel pump. I sprayed some easy start into the air intake and it started but only for seconds. If power is put to each jet it will fire that jet. Peugeot say it is a Fiat engine 2.8.Hdi. Any suggestions please?

Gerry O`Brien, Ireland

Peugeot Boxer 2003

Since 2009 I have had a problem with my Peugeot Boxer. It has been into the main dealers, you name it, but no-one seems able to help. This fault has got gradually worse as time has gone on. When accelerating ever so slightly "harshly" the engine management light comes on and the engine cuts out. If I then turn it off fully, take the key out, wait 10 seconds and turn it back on it resets itself and starts perfectly and the light goes out. The van can also cut out when coming down through the gears. I learnt how to drive it by coaxing the speed up and managed to drive many hundreds of miles this way. As I said it`s now getting worse and really is a pain as it could cut out every few yards. I have had mechanics bypass the tank which didn’t work, alll filters etc changed with no difference. I had a part replaced on the fuel line (sensor) but it did absolutely nothing. Has anyone ever experienced anything similar? Obviously it has to be something computerised / electrical as it completely resets itself once the key is taken out etc? In 2009 I had the engine completely rebuilt following the timing belt going. I`m based in Ireland and just wonder if anyone knows someone who can assist at all? Can anyone help please? (330 2.2 HDI)

I have the same problem with my diesel Boxer 2.2 hdi. The Peugeot garage in Aldershot have just quoted me £5,054 for all the parts to replace the entire fuel filtration system including fuel injectors, high pressure fuel pump and a new tank. They reckon it is 13 hours work. As the fuel is getting to the engine for hours at a time and the problem only occurs when under rapid acceleration at speeds of over 40mph, I can’t see how the van would run at all if the fuel filtration system is as bad as they think. If anyone has any good ideas of what else I could to do to fix it please let me know. Grahame Stoner from Surrey

I had exactly the same symptoms. The answer was 1 injector with an internal crack Under heavy load, more diesel leaks back to the tank, which trips out the ECU. My local Bosch specialist stripped and rebuilt the injectors replaceing the cracked one all for £460. The cheapest option might be to get a new injector and try it in each cylinder.

The speedo on my Peugeot Boxer is not working Anonymous from

I recently bought a 2002 autosleeper 2.8 hdi. Before I took it on its first run out I filled it up with 60 litres. It ran fine and everything seemed OK. After it had been parked on some hardstanding for about an hour I noticed a large pool of diesel underneath, I looked underneath and saw diesel dripping down but I could not tell where it was coming from. I took it back to the dealer who found that the metal seam around the centre of the tank had split. He tried numerous Peugot dealers for a new tank but none had one in stock he was told there would be a shipment into the UK in about 3 months time and the retail cost was £900. Luckily for me he was able to find a pattern tank for £400. What happens is if you fill up with just less than half a tank no leak is apparent. Hope this is of some use John from Leicestershire

I recently replaced the gearbox of my Peugeot Boxer with one taken from a scrap "runner". When in fifth gear if I brake to come to a halt without disengaging gear, as soon as I start to brake it is impossible to disengage gear after halting. The only solution is to wait a considerable length of time or to start off again, still in fifth gear and revving the engine hard and slipping the clutch. Once moving, I can then get out of fifth gear. (I did also experience this as one of the problems in the gearbox that I removed).
