T4 Post Icon Re: Please post your engine Type in querries

hello i am about to order a timing belt kit for my 2.5tdi/88bhp its on a T plate and order a couple tools to do the job,i have a brooklands manual and a 'bit'of previous mechanically speaking,i will admit to being concerned,not so much by the work but the consequences of over looking something or simply being unaware of a serious detail/procedure.
am i as stupid as my wife suggests or is it possible for the diy-er?
i have replaced an air cooled 1600 in an old bay i owned a long time ago,clutches/steering racks and so on.
i think the code for this engine is ACU or ACV,it looks like i should replace the water pump aswell.
any advice would be very welcome
ps-the skip in skipdweller referes to caravan,having lived in a couple skips and my old Bay it was a term of endearment toward the caravans
many thanks

I dont recommend replacing the timing belt yourself,unless you have vagcom or vw diagnostic equipment there is no way you can check the TDI timing correctly.
It is far from a straight forward job to even get to the point where you need the diagnostic equipment,and like no other timing belt i have replaced before.There is a comprehensive guide somewhere on this forum.
Best of luck if you attempt this on your own,you have been warned.

Hi all, just wondering if anyone can help as I cant seem to start a new thread.
Ive recently had the injector pump belt, cam belt kit, and waterpump replaced on my 2.5 TDi (102 bhp) ACV T4. As soon as it was done I had difficulty starting it, when previously it started perfect 1st crack of the key, even when stood in freezing conditions.
I asked them to recheck the timing but dont think they had the correct VAGCOM software, if anyone is in the Dudley area or within aproximately 20 mile radius and wouldnt mind taking a look, please let me know.
Thanks Dave.

Can we all please when asking for advice about thier engine or related problems state what engine they have as far too many times i will read a thread and not have a clue what engine they have and find it difficult to advise because the advise is different for all the different engines found in the T4!

i, I'm new to this and VW!
I have bought a T4 Caravelle camper which is giving me trouble starting I think its te glow plug (s). I was told its a 1.9 engine but looking under the bonnet its a 5 clyinder engine. Am I right in saying that a 1.9 would be a 4 cylinder model? also can you tell me where to look for the low plugs as I cant see them.

Sorry if tis is not the right place to post this.

Regards
Tony

Default T4 1995 Engine Difficulties

My First post! Hi Everyone

I just bought a T4 1995 1900 4 clynder diesel. Engine Code AFE. The guy that sold it to me said he just replaced the engine. Well its throwing it aux belt.

The crank shaft pulley runs the altenator and water pump, there is a seperate pulley for the power steering.

As I run the engine, the drive belt is creeping off the crank shaft pulley. It doesnt sit very well on the water pump.

I have put a brand new aletnator on it as the old altenator pulley shaft was bent and this was making the altenator pulley cavitate.

Can anyone explain why this may be happening?

Many Thanks for your valued advice.
