    Hi everyone, I'm looking for a bit of advice. My T5 2006, 1.9 TDI AXB Engine is slowly giving up on me and breaking my heart :/ . I gambled on it when I bought it, it had 235,000 miles and has 280,000 miles now. I have spent a lot of time converting it to a camper and have spent a lot of money...

    Still cant chase off this leak and after doing the thermostat amongst some pro-active refurb work, I think I have located the leak's.... Coolant is pooling under the sump, which looks to be over the power steering pump too, which I assumed was running off the thermostat pipe. I think coolant...

    My T5 has had a head gasket go, so rather than just doing a normal gasket change I am thinking about changing the head and turbo from a 1.9TDI PD 130 Bora. With the T5 being a PD 100 and the Bora being a PD 130 The head numbers are the same, so here is a few questions before I start. 1) Do I...

    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...

    Got my van converted a couple of years back and it has a camper conversion in the back ,FMIC, EGR blank etc, but I expected it to go a bit better than it does. It will cruise at 75/80 max and the turbo waste hate seems to release around then so can't really go any faster (unless its going...

    My T4 died the other day and I was hoping to put an engine in with a bit more grunt. Has anybody done a transplant for one of these beasts and what kind of options do I have in regards to engine size or type? I'm guessing even sticking a 1.9tdi in even is gonna be a pain in the plums! Any help...
