First port of call is always to change the fluid - it can make a big difference to the performance of the 'box. The biggest killer of auto 'boxes on T4s is overheating, which can permanently damage them, but treated carefully they can work well.

jawdropping Re: Petrol van owners?

My 1994 T4 ACU 2461cc auto camper van does 20mph on petrol and 17mpg on LPG. With such poor economy I thought there was something wrong but after having read some of the previous comments I don't feel so bad about it.
