  1. Cold strat relay clicking

    During cold weather the first (and only the first) start of the day is sluggish like a low battery and a clicking noise from the dash (right of the steering wheel). If I keep the key turned to start it will eventually catch and start. If I turn the ignition off and try again it’ll turn over and...
  2. T4 1992 Multivan middle heater vents blowing cold!

    General Technical
    I have a problem! My central heater blowers are blowing stone cold and the side vents scorching hot! Go figure? Can anyone suggest a possible reason and a solution before I start dismantling the dash board etc. Thanks in advance from a frozen T4 driver...Adrian

  5. Eberspacher Location?

    Hello all, I've just bought a second hand Eberspacher D2 and i was wondering for you who have already have them in your T4 where you mounted them? I'm thinking possibly under the drivers seat as it would be close to my leisure battery. My van is already insulated and lined and i wouldn't like to...

  7. Cold Starting

    General Technical
    Hi all, have read the posts about cold starting but still none the wiser. I have a 1.9 (51) T4 that normally starts fine, other than the standard puff of white smoke. But when it's very cold out (this morning) she really struggles, even with the cold start lever pulled out. The engine turns...

  9. Cold Start Lever Kaputt!!

    Engine & Gearbox
    May have been a little heavy handed with the cold start lever this morning... the plastic lever itself has broken around the thread (which I assume connects it to the cable). Does anyone know of anywhere I can get a replacement? perhaps even something a little more durable? anodised...
  10. Engine 'holds back' - more in cold weather

    Engine & Gearbox
    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)...
