    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...

    A bit of a long shot here but I am wondering if someone has a DTI gauge for the Bosch VE pump I could borrow around the West Midlands area/coventry? I am doing the cambelt, water pump and fuel pump belt on the ACV 2.5TDI engine and I’ve got to that point and realised I never ordered it when I...
  3. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hi, I have a 1996 T4 1.9td 800 special with 200k on the clock. Just recently I noticed a tapping sound coming from the engine which corresponds with an issue with the idle speed, I have to run it with the choke out, and white smoke from the exhaust. Could this be the fuel injectors? The noise...

    How many k's would i get out of an 2.5L automatic t4? I'm currently looking at buying a 2003 t4, just clocked over 110,000ks and is in really good nick. However i dont want to bite the bullet if the fuel consumption is heavy, I live rurally and its a pain in the as the only service station is...

    Hey everyone! Van keeps cutting out at 60MPH. Loads of white smoke billows out of the back and either the engine completely dies (power steering and all) or i just lose all power. Seems to be struggling to start as well! Suspect theres a problem with the fuel? Any pointers? VW T4 2.5TDI 2003...

    Hi So my VW T5 2.5TDI has a problem where it starts okay and runs great until a few miles where the engine shudders a little and then when I get to a junction and slow down, the engine cuts out completely. It then takes a number of times to restart, but when it starts, it runs fine again until...

    Hey all, I bought a full service kit from just Kampers a few months back. Did the oil and air filter change with no issue but when it came to the filter the one they sent was different to the one fitted. This confused me as the one they sent was the same as the one in my Haynes Manuel. Any I...

    Hey, my van was sitting for a few years - got a replacement engine put in and it's been running fine. Then one day - few months of driving - the van suddenly lost power. If you hold the throttle open, it revs up and dies, then close to idle it will rev again, then repeat. There was air in the...

    Hi there, My 1.9td T4 has been running rough for a while now so I decided to have the timing belt changed. All went well until the problem started coming back, So I removed the injectors and sent them away for testing and the guy at the testing place told me they were full of water and he hadnt...

    So. Today I set about installing the floor mounts for a triple seat. This meant dropping the tank, which was a bit of a daunting thought. Anyway, behind the plastic filler neck trim you have a bolt which supports the neck and has an earth... now, when I took this bolt out, out came A LOT of...
  13. LT & Crafter
    Hi We bought our LT end of last year to slowly convert to a camper. It's been running fine until last week. I took the battery out to replace the rotten battery tray and since putting it back in, it wont start. It cranks OK but wont fire. I have undone one of the injector pipes and cranked -...

  15. Fuel
    I rather stupidly drove out of a petrol station and onto a dual carriageway with my fuel cap still on the roof... It bounced off and was probably knocked further down the road by a passing car or squashed under a lorry, never to be seen again. It was a lockable screw cap - opened by my ignition...

    Hi we have a T4 2000 2.5 TDI 102 Noticed a fuel leak around the fuel filter lots of repairs to the plastic pipes and the thermo valve was past its best, so have replaced the pipes to the fuel pump, and the thermo valve, seal and clip but cannot get the thing to start now the fuel does not seem...

    My T4 1.9TD starts bad when the fuel tank has only about a quarter of fuel left in it. With a full tank it starts directly. But with only a quarter or less fuel in it it takes a while. Does anybody know this problem?

    I have a 96 t4 with a diesel leak on the tank . When you brim it the fuel will leak down the near side , only slightly .but also into the door runner of the sliding door which is weird . Could it be the breather ? :*

    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...

    Hi there, My 2.0 Petrol AAC T4 got towed home by the AA man last week. The fuel pump wasn't pumping. I have had the pump out and it works fine. The Relay however does switch when the key is turned to ignition then after 2 seconds the relay switches off. There is voltage to the pump for 2 seconds...
