My engine is totally fubar'd and I just want to buy a new reconditioned engine but everywhere I can find want my old engine in a fixable state, which it aint. Anyone know where I can just buy an engine off the shelf?
I have a problem with my beloved vw crafter 2013, where the engine shakes and make a tikking noise only on cold engine and when car is loaded much. I have changed the timing belt, checked the camshaft, changed diesel filter, diesel pump, oil filter and checked the injectors…. The car...
I’ve just bought a 1.9 T5 T32, and given my current levels of mechanical ineptitude was so focussed on checking fluid levels etc. that I missed this cable tied bodge on the top of the engine.
I think this is a bodged EGR valve bypass, but I wanted to double check. I can see two spots...
I am looking at buying a t4 in the not too distant future. Budget isn’t great (£7-£8k).
I have seen a very nice one within budget however it had the engine and gear box replaced and clocks reset.
Is it a terrible idea to purchase a van in that condition?
original engine had done...
I have a T5 that has a mystery problem that is currently costing me a fortune as its been through a few workshops to try and diagnose the problem so I'm hoping someone here will be able to help.
The van will start fine whenever the engine is cold, but when the engine is warm it can't...
Recently bought a non-runner with the intention of stripping for parts for my working T4. Appears the non-runner is actually in better condition than mine body wise so am considering attempting to fix the engine, or put a new one in.
I'm completely new to this, but as I have nothing...
was hoping to ask some advice/get some opinions (dangerous thing to do on fb!). I have an 2003 t4 with just over 150 000 miles. The cambelt went on it while I was driving and the engine needs to be replaced. I was thinking of selling it anyway as I just don’t get enough use out of it. I can’t...
Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere but I'm looking to get a T4 and have heard great things about the 2.5TDI engines but I really like the look of the short nose body shape (pre-facelift/non multivan/caravelle). As far as I have found out the facelift happened around 1997 and the later...
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...
I have a T4 2.4 from 1995 with a gasoline engine. I noticed that over the last 300-400 km of riding I have lost 150-200 ml of antifreeze coolant. A few months ago I had a severe leak due to a ripped tube and this got fixed. Not sure if the leak now is connected to the old leak, but this time is...
About to change the oil on my 2.5tdi. Have done it several times and was thinking this time of using flushing oil first to get engine cleaner. Is this a good idea, would anyone recommend this, and and how much do I need? Thanks, Richard
Hello, wondering if anyone can help, I was driving along and heard a pop. Engine now won’t turn over and I was towed away. Can’t see oil just water and coolant. Pouring out. No hoses are dislodged, all I have is a video which I will try and attach.
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...
Apologies in Advance as I’m a complete noob here but was wondering if it would be possible to do a clean engine swap from a 2003 into a 1996 chassis? Would any extensive retrofitting need to be done or would it be an easy swap?
They are both T4 Petrol 2.4L
Due to get my first T4 at the end of the month and I'm already worrying! It's a 2002 1.9td with about 115,000 miles and some service history plus camping interior and pop-top. Looks in great condition. I've paid for HPi checks and everything looks good (apart from 2nd previous owner...
My beloved 2002 1.9 has got a wobbly crank shaft, throwing out the timing.
I was trying to find a replacement van but to no Avail. So now I’m considering a replacement engine.
she is up to LEZ current and future standards, but what happens when I change the engine out for...
Pretty sure this has been done to absolute death but havent seen much recently so thought I'd give it a go.
Getting tonnes of black smoke out the back of the ABL so soon enough I recon it will be time to either: recon ABL engine or go down the TDI 1Z, AHU, AFN route. However from what I've...
Hi vw forum
T5 2.0 tdi
My Van broke down, last week on the m25- doing 70 mph and the power cut out and I rolled to the hard shoulder with the glow light flashing.
AA could not start van, so it was towed to my house. The normal garage i use(last 20 years) was busy and...
