My T4 2.5 petrol has gone from perfect starting and idling, to needing a bit of gas to get going and failing to hold idle. Initial symptoms were occasional slightly delayed start, sometimes giving a little surge when cruising with little/no throttle and maybe almost cutting out at traffic...
Going to look at a camper for a family member.
Im a T5.1 owner, so a bit in the wilderness here.
The T4 van is a Petrol engined auto with low miles, is there anything I should be concerned about round that drivetrain?
And are there any other classic T4 issues to look out ?
VW TRANSPORTER T4 1000 LWB 2.0 PETROL AND LPG
I’ve had the vehicle for just over one year, in that time, I’ve had the following done:
1. Replaced coil mounting bracket and coil unit (11/18)
2. Replaced vacuum pipes (11/18)
3. Full service (11/2018)
4. Replaced all four tyres (08/19)
I've been having auto gearbox issues. I've got a 1999 Caravelle 2.8 petrol automatic.
It shifts from 1st into 2nd fine, but instead of shifting into 3rd, it drops to neutral then back into 2nd. It won't shift into 3rd. It was fine in January, then wasn't driven for 6 months.
Long time lurker of the forum, and for years never had any problems with my T800 special. It's just thrown a conrod, and put a hole straight through the bottom of the engine- so now I need to find a replacement. At this point, I was wondering whether there were any other options than...
thought i would introduce myself and ask a few question.
i am looking for a kombi, caravelle, or even a autosleeper camper, but i gather the build quality has reduced in recent years, as has the running costs with all the new electronic gismo's.
i have however been scouring the web looking...

does anyone know where I can locate a replacement crankshaft damper bottom pulley or equivalent for my 2.5i 1996 caravelle (ACU petrol engine). I've been advised it now needs replacing by my local mechanic.

Hi All, and Happy New Year
Finally managed to get a once over for the van by someone who knows what they are doing.The engine is running is very lumpy and
apparently the exhaust manifold is leaking but it is the clamp (and special tool) type , not the bolts . He suggests swapping it out would...

I'm looking to fit a stainless exhaust my T4, which has got me thinking about downpipes and manifolds - as you do:D
Engine in mine is 2.5 petrol and AET engine code
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the downpipe is different i.e smaller in diameter to the 2.5 diesel one right? I know the flange...
Having an intermittent starting problem with my 1997 2.0L petrol T4.
When I turn the key, there are two clicking sounds and that's usually it.
If you do it for long enough, it will crank and then die...then you do it a few more times and it actually starts and runs great.
Hi everyone, as in my post last night I am trying to sell my uncle's van as he can n longer use it due to ill health. I don't profess to know anything about these really, other than I know I'm completely unable to put a value on this thing at all!
I know it's a farly poor example, but...

Replaced the throttle sensor
I'm now wondering if it's a worn wire...
Although i don't have any problems changing gears I seem to be getting a lot of noise from my transmission :s.
After getting my van up on ramps I found it seems to be the diff bearing as there is a bit of play.
Also there is what I think gearbox oil leaking from the passenger side cv joint...
I'm trying to help a friend out who's got problems with his petrol T4.
When the engine is idling, there is a hiccup every 10 seconds or so.
When the engine is warm and under load, it looses power. You can feel the power dropping away, the more you press the accelerator, the worse it...
Im having problems with the transmission on my T4 petrol at the moment.:(
