You surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

Citroen troubleshooting


well since the starter was only 2 months old i am betting its an ignition short. When u turn the key, the solenoid on the starter engages the bendix gear with the engines flywheel and then energizes the starter motor. And when u release the ignition the solenoid and the starter motor should de-energize. hope this helps you.

Citroen relay van 2.0L HDI


Have a load test done on the battery as the glo-plugs should get very hot very quickly. Diesel engines have to have a high rpm crank speed or they will not start and will leave unburnt fuel in the cylinders ( wet glo- plugs). Every indication is that the battery is flat or is not the right capacity for the car.

I have a citroen xantia 2.0 hdi,glow plug light goes out to quickly not on long enough,problem still there even after new glow plugs were fitted, would apreciate help thanks.


have you tried the glow plug relay? or if you have a test light see if theres power to glow plugs when light is on,should only light for 5 or so seconds.some of the newer hdi dont even use the glow plugs till temp is very cold,i have a 2006 2.0 hdi van and glow plug light only stays on for a second or so,and its been like that from new! is the problem just bad starting? and is it only when its cold? if you have a manual priming pump for fuel under bonnet,trying pumping before starting it could be fuel prob?ie air getting into fuel system
