    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...

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...

    Engine & Gearbox
    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.

  9. Tank removal, bit of a leak :-/

    General T5 Technical
    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...

  12. Can I replace a lost lockable fuel cap?

    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...

    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?

  20. Ex AA T4 problem

    Engine & Gearbox
    Morning all, I'm looking at buying a T4 as above but it won't start. It turns over but won't actually start. Its a good price at 2k but I would just like your opinion, is it likely to be an easy fix or should I avoid it? I know it's difficult to tell without seeing it but it's worth an ask! Thanks.
