    Hi all. Recently acquired a 2001 T4 with the 2.5 petrol and auto transmission. Been kept in really good condition and despite 143000 on the clock, the only (visible) areas of work are the classic wheel arches and the rusting (however, even these are very repairable!). That said, whole thing is...

    My 2004 T4's automatic transmission keeps getting stuck in first gear and lurching into second. It doesnt stay stuck very long, and it doesnt happen often. Has this happened to anybody else? I've taken it to multiple mechanics but it never acts up for them.

    Not sure if this should go in electrical section or here in engine but here goes. My ACV 2.5 used to rev automatically when I started it first. It would fluctuate between 800 rpm and just below 1000 rpm after starting and do this for about 20 minutes and then would idle normally at just below...

  10. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi! Whilst driving up a Devon hill on full throttle at about 55mph I got a loud warning alarm sound (a rather urgent beeping). I dont really know if I let up the throttle in surprise or if it cut out automatically, but the vehicle lost all drive and coasted to a stop. I believe the engine had...

    I'm interested to know how good/bad the petrol consumption is for my van and how well others do, both auto and manual petrol driven T4s. Any input for comparison or tips to improve it would be great. This is my VW '95 T4 2.5 auto: I don't thrash it, and take the foot off the pedal whenever...

    As a newbie I've been busy doing as much homework I can. Currently looking a potential purchase of a BCP 2.5 auto. Does the stripped drive splines problem apply to auto boxes as well as manuals? And are there any issues with the auto gearbox that I should be looking for? Cheers for the help.
