    My T5 is a T28 2.0 Tdi 102 on a 62 plate, 75,000 miles.

  4. No current to thermoswitch

    Electrical
    My van's a 1994 T4 2.4 diesel. Problem is that the radiator fans are not coming on, even when the temp gauge reaches three quarters. I've disconnected the 3-pin connector from the radiator thermoswitch and expected one of the wires to be live, but it's not. The 30A fuse (labelled Cooling Fans)...

  14. New head gasket! But still overheating?? :(

    Engine & Gearbox
    I pretty much feel sick.... Ive had some drama's with my T4 1.9d. After a lot of grief with overheating problems and trying some cheaper options, a sniff test confirmed gasses were leaking and (so my garage thought) would be causing it to overheat. So Ive just stumped up my last bit of hard...
