    Hi All, Merry Christmas, I have a very lovely T5, 2.5 Auto with tip gearbox. Just lately it has started to "judder" when changing up between 4th and 5th and 5th to 6th. Once the gear is changed it settles down but I am concerned that this might be an underlying issue that will cause a much...

    Hi everyone! I am new to this forum, since I have just bought a T4, 1.9, 2001, no turbo, and it drove around 220.000km. T: We have just taken it for a weekend trip and on the way back, we felt that the car was having trouble to reach more than 80km/h in the beginning, and it drove like we were...

    Hi I'm new to the world of buying vehicles ( let alone T4's ) so there no surprise I have little to no idea what I'm doing. I'm buying a T4 2.4 2000 lwb for £1,000 it has an MOT with supposedly nothing serious wrong ( almost just cosmetic stuff). It has 227,000 miles on the clock but other than...

    Hi, I recently bought a 51 plate Caravelle, auto 2.5 TDI. 135k on the clock. 400 miles and two weeks later, I made the short commute home and noticed a fluttering noise on acceleration. Next day I drove the van again and same noise. It starts at around 1200 revs when the accelerator is pressed...

    I have a VW T4 2 litre Petrol 1991 converted to a camper. Once in a while the van loses power/acceleration. Usually this is just a very short thing which makes the van jump a bit and I either have to dip the clutch and rev the engine multiple times before power will pick back up, or re-start it...

  8. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all Finally my engine has been replaced! My 1992 T4 2.4D is up and running again! However, the guy who fitted it for me said that it was fitted with a limiter, and it's quite a simple fix to take this off. But he said to drive it about and see how it goes. Well I've done that, and it's a...

    Hi, The oil light is on constantly (not flashing) i understand this means low oil pressure? I have changed the oil pressure switch on the filter as well as the connections to it.

    How hard is your accelerator? Mine seems to be abit hard and is always an effort to get somewhere. Do I need to look at something, could it be like the old bay's with the linkage? Many thanks

    Recently (during the cold weather) I've found that when I get to about 65/70 the engine starts cutting back. I thought it could be a problem with a dirty air filter. However, now that the weather has warmed up the problem seems to have almost disappeared. The van's a 2001 T4 2.5 diesel (ex AA)...
