    I wonder if anyone can help? It is VW related but more general, and I feel it would be lost in the other vehicles section..The fuel in my mum's 2007 Touran smells of Turps and not diesel. It has not been used much during the pandemic, so assume the fuel has gone stale. The car is regularly...

    Hi I have T5 conversion which we just bought second hand and we love it!. The problem is the Eberspacher diesel heater. I have an Easystart call (model number 221000340200). It has a single on/off switch with no other controls. Apparently, it is controlled via a mobile app and is supposed to...

    Hi, my ‘94 lt35 2.4D non turbo recently developed a complete loss of power when up to speed. The oil light came on and will only turn over when cooled down. It then didn’t sound like it was firing on all cylinders. My suspicions are that either the wrong oil was used or the oil pump isn’t...

    Bosch have announced a new system to 'clean-up' diesel emissions. But it looks as though there's a fair way to go yet! The technology is there, and with anything technological the system sure needs to be miniaturised! They also claim that it can't be retrofitted to older model vehicles, but...

    I have a problem starting my diesel T5 transporter (2005, 2.5L DIESEL automatic) The car starts perfectly (within one second of turning the starter) if it has been running in the previous 12 hours or so. If it is longer than this, it fires within one second but then dies, and then can take for...

    Hi, I'm a relatively newbie. I've got a 2011 T5.1 Shuttle Diesel auto, with retro fit 'Rostra' cruise. I don't particularly like it and thinking of having an OEM cruise fitted. Before I do so, I'd like to talk to someone with a simlar spec engine/ box van to check that the cruise works in a way...

    Hi Everyone, our company recently expanded to Istanbul (that how we moved here) and one of the people best movers here (and very popular) is the VW Caravelle / Transporter. Some real amazing custom mods they have. All VIP finishes. So when we decided to get a bigger car, we didn't think twice...
  10. General Van Chat
    I'm wanting to buy a van this year, but am increasingly worried that a diesel van is going to end up increasingly expensive, unwelcome in many places, and will be hard to sell in the end. Do others feel the same? Does anyone know whether VW are planning to bring in petrol engines sometime...

    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...

    Evening all! Is anyone using a heater that's connected to a thermostat somehow? I like the idea of a diesel heater, but which would keep the van at a set temperature all night. Is this possible and if so, which kits are you using. Thanks!

    Hi folks, it's my first post, so please be gentle! I have a diesel leak on my '96 1.9 diesel t4. Pipes and seals from filter to pump have been replaced. The leak occurs on starting from cold and stops once the engine has been driven. There's no noticeable change in performance but the big issue...

    I'm in need of a recommended engine re conditioner for my 2.5l 5 cylinder. Preferably based in the South of the country but will travel if needed. Any suggestions?

    Hello all, So my first post and I am asking for help :/ Ok, I have a newly acquired 1993 t4 2.4 diesel van which has been roughly converted to a camper van.. The electrics behind the dash are, to say the least, bodged! I rewired yesterday only to try and move the van but it would only turn...

    Hi chaps. Just bought a 1991 2.4 5 cylinder diesel and it takes a lot of cranks before it fires up. There is also a very faint smell of diesel. Watching the clear diesel supply line we can see lots of air inside the pipe. I know these systems should self blieed so I am assuming there is an air...

    Good evening my fellow transporter lovers. The Beast doesn't want to start when fuel getting just below a quarter of a tank, thought I might have a leak on or it was how I park the van at night thinking all fuel running back in to the tank. Anyway I did a google search which brought the forum up...
