    Hi all, I’ve had a misfire on my 1.9 2007 T5 and it’s been very sluggish since I bought it. It’s been to various garages including a Vw specialist for diagnosis. No faults are showing at all, I’ve had the injector harness replaced and it’s had nearly every sensor replaced before I bought it...

    Hi I have fitted ac to my 1.9 brr 038906016ah ecu full genuine off another van single fan gassed up with 550g gas as per snap on data. I can command it on using Vcds and works fine fun runs and gets cold. I think the coding should be 010031 but still nothing off the button it all lights up as it...

  4. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, I am a new T4 owner which is 1997 LWB 1.9D 68BHP. It is fully converted to a camper. I haven't taken it too far to date probably about 100 miles in one trip. I am not expecting the van to drive like a sports car but it does seem slow, uphill and pulling off especially at busy roundabouts...

    Forge is expensive at £400+. It also appears to use the clip style hoses which are problematic. Currently my gut is to go with the darkside developments one. Its £225 and looks like you can use their (hardpipe & silicone)kit, thus removing the problem of the VW clips... I have no experience...

    I've read every thread I can on here and have tried to solve this myself but to no avail - yet. Van: 53 plate - 1.9 104 - remapped 3-4yrs ago. Until today (EGR black) no further mods.

    Hi, I am looking for a VW Transporter (T30) on about a 2007 plate for a camper van conversion and I do not know whether the 1.9 (102 bhp) or 2.5 (130 bhp) engine will be the best. Does anyone have on thoughts regarding this, such as whether one is better than the other, more costly or...

    I've got a 1.9 turbo t4 800 with 218,000 miles on the clock. Over the past few years it's been gradually getting weaker, but since the winter has come along it's gone to a different level of weak. I’ve has a look at other posts on here that talk about losing power, but nothing quite matches...

    Hi, I have had some problems with my van starting over the last couple of weeks. When I turn the key there is a faint click (injector?), and then nothing. All dash lamps come on and go off as normal. Then the other day cruising t 80ish the glow plug warning lamp came on. My mechanic is away...

    I've got something which looks like it is unplugged sitting in front of my radiator. Recently my cooling fan is coming on as soon as I start the van and staying on. I've got error code 18617 and 16502 - coolant temp sensor signal too high. I've ordered a new temp sensor from Eurocarparts. But I...

    As someone addicted to little projects, I wanted to install a boost gauge to my van. Now, I know the theory, tap a vacuum hose with a T-piece after turbo, but before manifold and run it through to the CAB; or drill the manifold and install a self-tapping nipple. I don't want to do the...

    Okay so the problem is with my stepdads 1.9 turbo diesel 2004 T5 van I don't drive them. He said the power is fine until then engine has warmed up (until some time of lockout occurs) I think it may be over boosting but I cannot be sure. He can pull through the rev ranges for a bit then just...
