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)

I have a Peugeot Boxer 1.9 Petrol 2000. Driving from a standing start the engine has a tendency to misfire which makes it hesitate for around 30 seconds or so. It will then go back to normal driving, but I am aware of a slight hesitation which I can hear now and again with a slight loss of power. Hope all this makes sense.

My Peugeot Boxer 1.9 engine runs fine and has done 47,000 miles. I had not envisiged towing when I purchased it this year but would like to tow my trike. The 1.9 engine would be a bit stressed to do this job. Is it possible to fit a larger engine say a 2.5 and would this involve major modifications to fit it or other alternative engines?

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?

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)

Answers

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). Does anybody have any advice as to the likely cause and possible cure please? (2.5 TD 5-speed manual)

My Peugeot Boxer`s reversing sensor sometimes works as it should, but sometimes emits a continuous scream when I engage reverse gear - often after rain or a wash. I assume the three black ’buttons’ on the rear bumper are the sensors, so I have tried wiping them. However now the black surface of one of them has crumbled, exposing dull grey beneath. Could this be the cause of the problem? Is there a repair/remedy? Any suggestions or explanations would be very welcome. (Autosleeper)

I have a Peugeot Boxer 350LX lwd hdi 2004 model. There is a lack of power from the engine when driving and it cuts out sometimes when going uphill. Then it will not start and I have to leave it for 3 minutes before the engine starts again. Has anyone had a similar problem and what could be causing the fault? Does anyone know where I can download a workshop manual or some diagrams of the fuel system please?

Answers

Try the fuel filter in case it’s blocked, or it could just be a blocked fuel tank breather, as for either once it’s been running for a while it is starved of fuel. I have also seen debris in the tank block and the fuel line/pick up filter, but it doesn’t sound like that to me. Unfortunately it could be a number of other things, but if it starts again fine after a short wait then you can rule out an air leak into the fuel system. It’s unlikely to be an electrical fault caused by heat as it would need more than a few minutes to cool down. So on balance it sounds like a fuel problem. You have probably already thought of these, but I hope this helps. Good luck. William from Kent.

Thanks for the help. Where are the filters location and can I get a layout diagram for the fuel system? Gurdial Hayre from England.

I have had the exact same problem on my van and found it’s the filter located in the fuel tank itself. It can be reached via the inspection hatch in the foot well of the cab near the passenger seats. I took it out, gave it a clean and it’s been running like a dream since. A regular dose of tank cleaner should keep the tank sediment at bay. Jamie Ash from England

Over the winter it seems the scuttle drain filled the gearbox in my Peugeot Boxer with water. It (allegedly) froze, expanded and split the gearbox casing. Anyway therre was gearbox oil all over the floor. It might be just a broken casing, but will need a lift (pick up/towtruck) to somewhere they can look at it and once there will they say no problem? I expected hundreds of thousands of miles from a commercial Peugeot vehicle. It seems like, as a motorhome, 32k miles is pretty good going and scrapping it is not unreasonable. Is this the way it is? Thoughts would be much appreciated. I really thought a motorhome based on such a vehicle would last "forever". Any comments please? (Motorhome - Autosleeper)

Answers

That’s really unfortunate re the freezing bit, but I have a 1988 ’campavan’ 2.5l and it’s now done 84k miles, I have had it a year and expect it to do at least another 50k. (it’ll probably pack up tomorrow now!) So 32k is far to early to scrap, and is most unreasonable. I added 10k last year. ’Autosleepers’ are much better known than my ’Campa’ and would probably retain their value because of that. I expect mine to last ’forever’! Would have thought you could probably find a second hand g/box and see if there is a mobile mechanic near you. We do have them down here! Nick Wilder from Cornwall

My Peugeot Boxer`s clutch pedal sticks after about 40 miles of driving. It tends to squeak first and then as the pedal is pushed to the floor it doesn’t release. Could it be the release spring or is it something else?

Answers

Mine does exactly the same thing. It happens when the plastic !!!! pedal box gets warm. I have tested this by using a blow heater behind the pedal and this reproduces the clutch pedal squeak and sticking. I have almost cured this by spraying white PTFE grease up the pedal onto the pivot and also onto the mechanism behind the pedal and the clutch master cylinder, which I believe is meant to help to return the pedal to the up position. This has very nearly cured the problem and the pedal has not again stuck at the bottom although it does sometimes stick in the last couple of centimeters and I always check that it’s fully released with my toe!!

Answers

The immobiliser has gone into default mode. Find a garage who can rectify it with an electronic fault finder which can also rectify the problem. Just had my Boxer key problem sorted this way Rob from Suffolk

We had this issue in France - assumed that it was the horror of an immobilser code key issue. Starter motor was turning over but not firing. However! Local mechanic found that it was a slightly faulty connector that entered the fuel pump (I belive a loine from the ECU into fuel pump) and we managed to get the code light to go out by sticking a screw driver in and wiggling at this juncture it appears to be an intermittent fault and I am told from Renfrewshire
