    I'm sure this may have been asked a thousand times already but can't seem to find any answers one way or another. Ok , if I disconnect my MAF sensor and the van runs the same as with it connected, and the wiring tests come up spot on, and the air flow system has been tested for leeks and...

  13. Is my MAF plug OK?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Just got the van back from a new cambelt and it seems very smooth but slower. I took the MAF plug off the MAF housing and noticed that it's only got 4 connectors in it but the MAF has 5 prongs. Is this right? Thanks Chris
  14. loss of power after engine wash

    General Technical
    I went to look a nice 2003 T4 2.5 tdi today. Just before I got there the guy brought it to the carwash. Unfortunately the power washer operator lifted the bonnet and sprayed the inside of comparment, all over the sensors, battery, ecu etc. Anyway, I arrived to your man selling the van looking...
  15. Back on the road - feels like a new van!

    General T4 Chat
    Had a bit of bother with the van over the last couple of weeks - failed the MOT on the brake servo, reg plate lights and brake balance. Some stupid errors on my part and also some things which have been there since we got it (I think the previous MOT was, shall we say, questionable). Anyway...

However, when i unplug the MAF air mass meter, the performance kicks in Ok. no sensors...

  19. HOW TO - Test G70 AIR MASS METER (aka MAF Sensor)

    Technical Articles
    The air mass meter is a critical sensor and well known for causing performance issues. But don't rush into replacing it until you do these checks. The signal from the air mass meter is required by the control unit to calculate the required injection quantity and to control the exhaust gas...
  20. HOW TO - Check your intake manifold pressure sender (G71) using Vagcom/VCDS

    Technical Articles
    Please note that this guide is for a 4 pin sensor, even though the fitting location diagram for the ACV engine shows a 2 pin intercooler (location is the same though). The 2 pin sensor is actually just a temperature sensor. The boost pressure is measured by a pipe plumbed directly to the ECU...
