  2. WATER PUMP failed HELP

    Engine & Gearbox
    The water pump on my 1997 T4 2.5 TDI LHD Multivan has failed, and a couple of hoses damaged by oil. First a slight dip in water reservoir, then suddenly all the water drains in a steady stream, so I am stranded except to limp to somewhere for a replacement. Back home in England my very reliable...

    The Pub
    I am , as the title suggests, drunk, but i was wondering if campers ever have hot water tanks fitted that are insulated and are heated by the engines own cooling system, just like the ones that many people have in their houses. ?

  7. Cooling fans not kicking in - easy fix??

    Engine & Gearbox
    I only noticed this the other morning due to sitting in traffic for 40 mins at the end of a journey - and only then when the red light started flashing....... It seems the fans aren't kicking in, so I'm guessing either a dodgy connection or thermostat issue - can anyone give me some pointers...

    General Van Chat
    As far as I can work out my factory fitted Eber is designed to only help improve cold start coolant warm up. Does any one know if it can be converted/replaced with one that will give stationary heating as well? Thanks Martin

  11. EeeeeK! Oil in water!

    Engine & Gearbox
    Was checking my oil and water today, no losses in either fluid, however I am more than a little concerned that there was a thin film of an oily substance on the inside of the oil cap and also some small black flecks of what appear to be oil in the water reservoir. Is this the start of something...
