  2. Lt35 ‘94 oil problem/loss of power

    LT & Crafter
    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...

  4. New life for Diesel yet ........ New Bosch system

    General Van Chat
    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.

  8. The future for diesel vehicles

    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).

    T5 Conversions
    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!

  16. Air bubbles in diesel supply and return pipes.

    Engine & Gearbox
    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.

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...
