    T4 2000 1.9td ABL. Rough idle on start up for about 10-30 seconds (depending on how warm the van is) until I hear a relay click and the revs instantaneously raise to 1000RPM. I have had the problem for a few months and it used to go away after the initial idle on startup. But recently it has...
  4. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hi, New to the forum and first post. Looking forward to learning and owning my new to me van. Just bought a 1997 T4 800 special. As the van does not currently have an engine my first decision is wether to search for a 1.9TD ABL or go straight for a 1.9 TDI AHU conversion. I hope to convert it to...

    Does anyone know if a clutch can be retro-fitted to an ABL Alternator, or if not, is there any other spec. of clutched Alternator that can be fitted to an ABL 1.9TD?
  6. Engine & Gearbox
    Just curious if anyone has tried any of the following Inlet Manifolds to improve the flow when tuning their 1.9TD. It looks as if there's quite a large choice of manifolds that will fit the ABL head with slight modifications....e.g. blanking the EGR, and tapping to include a take-off for a boost...

    Hi guys, This little nipple thing is broken on my van and I think air is escaping, causing a slightly annoying hissing sound on acceleration (it seems to lessen when I push the nipple back on). Does anyone know what it's called, or even better, have a link to where I can buy a replacement? Or...

    Hi, im about to start a afn conversion from a seat alhambra t reg. I have had a read of a few of the build threads of some of the people who have done it and know the wiring is a fair bit different. What i want to know is will the abl turbo manifold set up go onto the afn although its not vnt...

    So after much research, pondering and procrastinating the day is here. Purchased a P reg AHU powered mk3 golf some 12months ago now, full service history and a little over 140k on the clock, popped an MOT on it, have been using it as a little run around, and learner car for the wife since...

    Hello im after a 1.9td (abl) power steering pump bracket for my tdi conversion, and was wondering do all diesel t4's have the same bracket? thanks in advance and if you have a bracket can you give me a price please :ILU:

    I've been living with my conversion for a couple of years now and it's come the time to change the PAS belt. Unfortunately, the replacement belt seems to be too long and even at the max I can tighten it, it still has too much play. The VW belt was 10x648 and the replacement part (non VW) is...

    Hi everyone, Just wandering if anyone has decided to replace their 1X non-turbo engine with the later ABL turbo diesel engine in their T4? Have had some bad news from the garage and van needs new engine but seriously struggling to find a replacement 1X - and have been told by any people that...

    Hi folks I've been searching away but can't find any posts on how to tune the engine to it's basic setting/rpm. Recently my T4 1.9 TD ABL has been idling a bit on the low rev side. Getting down to 8000rpm at times. There are many threads on tuning up the engine, moding it. But none on basic set...

    My van has just been into a diesel specialist as I was having problems with a lot of smoke on start up in the mornings for the first couple of miles. I was hoping for a little tweak here and there and all would be good... However I have now been told that cylinder 3 is running at 200psi and 1,2...

    Afternoon all, A few months ago I took my van (T4 1.9TD ABL) to a garage to get the cambelt changed. Soon after the engine developed a tapping noise. I took the van back to the garage to ask for a recheck on the timing – they said the timing was correct. I took the van home to investigate...
  16. Engine & Gearbox
    Hello, Sooooo my second engine has decided to break one of it's pistons, garages are suggesting it's probably cheaper to replace the engine rather than repair it. So I have a conundrum; do I tow it to an engine rebuild specialist to so they can run tests to see how far the damage goes or just...

    My 1X engine has gone bang. Think I've bent a valve or two. I'm looking to swap it out for a complete ABL, though I'd also be interested on a low mileage 1X just to get me back on the road. I'm in Coventry, so it would be ideal of the engine was nearby or you could get it on a pallett (or...
