My 2012 Peugeot Boxer 130bhp 2.3 engine has a timing chain. I had understood that, whilst a Peugeot, it is actually a Fiat engine. So now I'm confused. :rolleyes:

Both part of the Sevel group and share body and mechanical parts but not necessarily in the same combinations. Bodies are built in the same factory.

Anyone dithering a cam belt change because of price would do well to consider the cost of replacement is circa 10% of the cost of repairs due to failure.

Shouldn't that be the 2.2 HDI Ford Transit lump in the Peugeot?

AFAIK every 2.3l engine fitted in a motorhome coming out of the Sevel factory has a cam belt. As other have said, are you sure you do not have the 2.2l Ford engine

You say 2.3, are you sure it’s not 2.2 and the PSA/Ford engine?
You're quite right; it's only 2.2 litre.
It does have a a timing chain though, not a belt.
I cut and paste some details from another site who's name I will not mention writing in 2011:

"The new Boxer is powered by three new latest-generation HDi common rail diesel engines that all conform to the Euro 4 emission standards. The engines are also fitted with an electronic onboard diagnosis (EOBD) system to monitor exhaust emissions:
A 2.2 litre HDi diesel engine derived from the co-operation between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Ford is available in two versions: 100 bhp and 120 bhp. A 3.0 litre HDi SOFIM diesel engine with a power of 157 bhp.

2.2 LITRE HDI DIESEL ENGINE
This new 4-cylinder HDi common rail diesel engine has been specially designed for commercial vehicles. Its capacity is 2198 cm³, obtained by a bore of 86 mm and a stroke of 94.6 mm.
This engine is equipped with a cast-iron engine block, a 16-valve aluminium cylinder head and two overhead camshafts. The camshafts are chain driven and a fixed geometry type turbocharger is used. By using the latest-generation common rail direct injection system, with an increased injection pressure of 1600 bars, the system reduces both noise and emissions.
The system ensures that there is always high pressure fuel available for each injection phase during the combustion cycle. The operating principle involves the use of electromagnetic injectors, controlled individually, which enables a finer fuel spray to be injected into the combustion chamber. The gains in terms of complete combustion and energy efficiency provided by this process, results in reduced emissions, fuel savings and a higher engine torque output. A high-capacity exhaust gas recirculation system, controlled electronically (e-EGR), lowers the combustion temperature and helps to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide and 'black smoke' by around a half. This 'intelligent' electronic system monitors the flow of air and corrects it automatically in the event of an EGR unbalance, or if a valve is jammed. It continually adapts to the engine's operating conditions and is water cooled.The 100 bhp version is combined with a 5-speed manual gearbox and has a maximum torque of 185 lb ft at 1500 rpm. "
