Forum noob here, but I've had a bunch of people reccomend I shoot a post on here to figure out what's my best option.
As the title suggests, my 2004, 2.5 T5 has well and truly shot itself in the face.
From what I can see through the great gaping hole in the side of the block, it...
Does anyone know what the torque specifications for the retaining bolts from the fuel rail to the engine block are?
The Haynes manual has the 2.0 specs at 22nm however that seems excessive and I am looking for the 2.5 AXD specs.
Any help is appreciated
Hi there, posting here for my father.
He has a 2.5 AXD LWB T5 and which recently dropped a Valve resulting in some significant engine damage. He loves this van and wants to continue using it however looking online there isn't anywhere that seems to reliably supply these engines. I understand...
Hi all.... Today I have swapped the cam on a 2.5 AXD engine, and have come to install the cam drive gear, and I feel uncomfortable proceeding.
My problem is, the gear won't slide up the the diamond washer, it binds on the intermediate gear, and I don't want to drive it on with the bolt for...
Found MANNOL engine oil on eBay it looks like it covers alot of VW specs if it does it's like a wonder oil lol , but it's really cheap .
Also says it covers 505.01 and 506.01
But the in description says
*Except VW PDU engines...
My alternator was very noisy and the luck-up pulley was slipping at high revs - I had sourced an alternator and I realised very quickly its a really ty job so I had been putting off for ages.
I spent a lot of time looking for details but there isn't a whole lot about so I gave it a crack and...
Our van has a power steering leak, and the aircon no longer works, I have checked the aircon free wheel and its duff, the reason it don't work is pressure related, of course I have to remove the aircon pump to get at the PS pump anyway, so may replace them both at the same time (I know the...
6 months ago I bought a T5 2.5tdi AXD 2004.
I knew the turbo was bad when bought it so the first thing I did was to replace it. Then I went for a vacation trip that ended after 1000km in a workshop since it was leaking oil on the outside of engine and also some found in the expansion...
I'm trouble shooting my T5 AXD engine with diesel in the motor oil, oil in the cooler and latest also starting problems when cold.
I know there is many with same/similar problems and I have some ideas of what to do.
Part of that is to trying to perform a compression test by myself by using...
new member, bought an 04 t5 AXD but now suffering from leaky exhaust manifold and white smoke.
Replaced manifold with a cast one and now in process of doing the injector seals.
Noticed some wear in injector bores so not 100% sure the seal fix will work.
Is there a...
When I started my 2005 AXD engine today it sounded a bit rough for about a second so I decided to check the oil. When I checked the dipstick there was no oil showing.
The thing is I normally use the oil warning light to prompt me to fill up with oil (not ideal I know) but now I am not...
I did this job a few months ago and just haven't had time to turn my own oily hand-written notes into something more presentable that I can share with you lot. Until now.
Here you go:
Definitely falls into the intermediate to advanced bracket. You should have at least...
Long time reader but never needed to post much until now.
My 2004 AXD Shuttle is getting a new turbo and exhaust manifold fitted. Both parts supplied by Darkside. It is the KKK turbo and is being replaced like for like. It is not the R5 engine but a normal AXD.
My very reliable garage...
I wanted to ask this question because for the past few months I have been trying to get to the bottom of a fault with my 2005 2.5 AXD engine.
At first I was getting the elusive overboost fault on the engine and it was tripping into limp mode, this normally occurred above 3000 rpm. The...
I have a quick question. What size are the hoses that connect to the N75 valve on an AXD engine? I would like to buy some silicone replacements but a search of this site didn't produce anything.
Can the exhaust manifold actually be removed leaving the turbo/exhaust in place? All the manifold removal threads I've read involve turbo removal, but no one explains why, unless, of course it's because they are swapping the turbo/replacing the turbo oil gasket as well. I can see the...
