automatic gearbox

  1. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, Is it possible (if it is then is it as easy as plug-and-play or major effort is needed) to swap 4 speed automatic gearbox from 2.4 petrol engine to 6 speed automatic gearbox from 2.8 VR6 engine? The more I read posts in this forum the less optimistic I get regarding swapping automatix...
  2. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all. So I have an automatic T4 and discovered after taking the gear lever out and the cover off that shows the gear selected that the well underneath was full of water. I had the van valeted in the summer and have since discovered the Valeter jet washed the carpet (I’m fuming) and I think...
  3. Engine & Gearbox
    Hello all, I've been having auto gearbox issues. I've got a 1999 Caravelle 2.8 petrol automatic. It shifts from 1st into 2nd fine, but instead of shifting into 3rd, it drops to neutral then back into 2nd. It won't shift into 3rd. It was fine in January, then wasn't driven for 6 months. I...

    Hi everybody I have a 2.4D California T4 with automatic transmission and I have a long history of problems. A few years ago the transmission started making erratic shifts ONLY if the engine was warm and ONLY after turning the engine off and then on again. Then if it changed to third it acted...

    Hi, As the title suggest I'm french, living in France, near La Rochelle. I: I like to use the DIY way, as far as possible. I discovered the VW camper's world in 1990 when I bought a 1982's T3 wanagon (1.6D 50Hp!). But, due to its big mileage (300,000km) I encountered so many (and costly)...

    I was just about to modify this to fit my manual but I have been told that the Automatic version is quite rare so it would be a shame to hack it about. Will swap for a manual version or sell for what it cost me £200+ postage. Has some marks as pictured, top storage has been cut to fit...

    Had a problem where the starter ring appeared to have a tooth missing - sometimes would not catch on the starter. About 3 weeks ago would not catch at all, so have taken torque converter out and had a new ring gear fitted. The old one did not look that bad, but was some wear on the first mm or...
  10. Engine & Gearbox
    I have a 2007 T5 Caravelle with a 128KW 2.5L Turbo Diesel engine and 5-speed automatic transmission. Lately, it has been upshifting in this strange sequence: 1st - 2nd - 3rd - 2nd - 3rd - 4th - 5th. That is, it almost always down-changes back to 2nd after 3rd gear, before proceeding up the...
  11. Engine & Gearbox
    My Auto box has started leaking oil and stuttering as it moves through the gears so I figure I've got a few weeks before it packs in. :( I'm resigned to the fact it could cost upwards of a grand to fix but wanted to understand all the angles before I turn up at the garage.... for example is...

    Hi, I have a 1994 2.4 automatic which has decided not to start. The engine doesn't even turn over, I suspect it's to do with the gear selector which needs to be in park to start. Does anyone have an idea where the relay is sited? Also a wiring diagram for the auto so I can trace the wiring. Thanks

    Vw Pic-up 97 2,5L gasolin EAT engine with a 4 speed auto trans 01P I got a dried up and blown o-ring to the oil cooler, got rid of the oil and lost traction at speed. Did towing the car approximately 1.5 mil. After new oil and replacing the o-ring, I have no drive at all, regardless of gear...

    Has anyone fitted a cooler to their automatic gearbox? Do you have photos, prices etc? And what sort of work is involved? thanks for any help.

    As most of you know the automatic gearbox is somewhat fragile, and frequent oil changes above the recommended service intervals has been suggested many a time. The reasons for the oil needing to be changed is that the gearbox generates too much heat above the operational temperature of the...

    The T4 uses an electronically controlled transmission which sets the shift points based on engine load and rpm information that is tuned to your specific driving habits. Sometimes this information gets garbled or for whatever reason may need to be reset to the default patterns so that it can...
