2 months ago brought a 2nd hand peugeot boxer 07 plate

i was driving down the motorway and it all cut out,
just been told it needs a new engine,

cheepest engine i can get is £1199

is there anyone who knows of a better deal on peugeot boxer engines 2.2 ?

is there anyone that may think it isnt an engine fault ?

That engine is prone to failure of various parts and is quite hard to find as it is shared with the transits so demand is high but supply is not !

If it was a timing chain issue then a new engine may well be the best option as its a slow tedious task to strip and rebuild them !

Does it run does it even turn over were there any noises prior to stopping.

Fault codes are not going to give you the answers if plugging in it needs live data readings to check various things you need someone who knows what they are doing not just fred down the pub with his handheld device.

Who said it needs an engine and why ?

If you feed us all the info then we can give better answers.

ok.
i think i understand
my brothers girlfriend works in a truck repair centre for mercedes.
she said that one of her mechanics said it needs a new engine.

so i guess i need a 2nd opinion??

when it stopped, it just cut out completely
and it didnt make no more noise than normal!!

she had it in her lock up for 4 weeks before looking at it!!
ODD

No compression could be timing related IE chain has jumped this is the most common failure on these engines.

It could also be overheated leading to head/gasket failure but im sure you would have noticed that.

A replacement engine is probably your best bet as they can get expensive to fix sadly it is a common issue on this engine.

2.2 engine is an oddball so harder to find plenty 2 litres floating around but they are not the same!

Without seeing it and hearing it myself its hard to say for sure im only going on the info you have but it would probably be the quickest option as repairing it would involve removing it anyway then time to dismantle inspect and replace parts if it even is repairable.

Some engines can be repaired reasonably cheaply this engine is not 1 of them !

All of the above is based on your van being an 07 with the later engine as 07 was changeover year and if it is a 2006 built van it could be the older engine thats a much easier fix you really need to confirm what engine you have before going further.

i guess that you cant give a diagnosis if you havent seen it

you been a great help1

yeh the van is a 2.2 and the plate is FX57
the new shape peugeot boxer

my mate said it might be the top end?
whatever that is

was hoping to avoid changing engine.

got told yesterday that its a different engine to what was the original engine!

seems like i brought a bad 'un

Its quite possible its a different engine as they have a bad reputation so it may already have failed once the more you tell me tells me it is a transit engine :)

It IS the top end BUT its most likely the chain that caused it so you need a full chain set you may also need a set of rockers then gaskets then if you unlucky some valves are damaged if your really unlucky a valve head has come off and has wrecked a piston as i say it can get expensive very quickly.

The fitter at the place you mentioned knows all this so he is telling you a fresh engine is the best option and he is correct sorry.

If you search ebay for transit p8fa engine you will see lots listed for spares as they break a lot !

If you know what you are doing you could buy a couple of damaged ones and build 1 good one thats what we do but its still going to cost you last 1 we had we sold for £1200 exchange not had 1 for a while though.

The peugeot van comes with a transit engine !!

ALL 2007 onwards boxers and citroen relay and transits use the ford engine.

Ford use peugeot engines in some cars !

renault use nissan engines

BMW use peugeot engines in the mini !

Its nothing unusual
