  1. Electrical
    Hello:) I have a 2010 T5.1 and got the ABS and TC yellow warning lights up on our holiday down in Cornwall, sometimes go off but mainly on. I'm home and plugged it in to VCDS, showing fault on rear right sensor, no reading at all when rotating. Not had chance to delve deeper yet but doing my...
  2. General T5 Technical
    Recently got a 2.5 TDI T5 which came on 20" alloys, due to the bigger circumference the speedo is reading around 4/5mph slower than the van is actually travelling. I was wondering if anyone could offer some insight as to weather there's somehow a way to recalibrate the speedo and would it be...
  3. Welcome to The VW T4 Forums
    Hi, I've just bought a lwb t4 tdi syncro. I'm wandering if its normal for these vans to struggle to go any faster than 70mph. Mine revs up to the red line in 1st, 2nd and 3rd but when I change into 4th and 5th it seems to stop at under 3000revs and only creeps very slowly up to 70mph. Is this...
  4. Engine & Gearbox
    I've searched the forums but there is nothing that helps me with this so hopefully someone will point me in the right direction. I have a 1997 T4 2.0l petrol. There is no maf (it has a temperature sensor between the airbox and throttle housing.) The problem is the vans idle speed rises and...

    Hi Everyone, I am new to forums and farely new to VW Transporer T4's. I am in the process of converting my '99 T4 into a camper and having a lot of fun doing it. One thing I have noticed is that my van is a little slow on the freeways. It seems that it has low gears for lugging heavy loads...

  7. Engine & Gearbox
    Just wondering if anyone has come across this puzzling behaviour >> We have had our T4 for for a few years and it is not the quickest vehicle by any means but could easily get away from the lights and push 90 - 95mph on the motorways (ahem [[in Germany]]), it would also do some of the long...
  8. Steering & Suspension
    Ive done a few searches on this and found people with similar problems but never a solution. I haven't had time to get under the van yet. Maybe this weekend weather permitting. I have a knocking sound when driving at about half lock (left and right). The knock gets faster as i accelerate...
  9. Engine & Gearbox
    HI All, I hope I have posted this in the right place ? recently purchased a Tatty 2.5 TDI on a 2000 plate, 140K on the clock with full history which is going to need a lot of TLC and wasn't running very well. Couldn't get it over 65 MPH . well after a lot of reading on here I changed the MAF...
  10. Wheels & Tyres
    Hi, I've got an ex-AA T4 (01). At the moment its got 205/65 R 15 C They are due for a change very soon - I like to keep them tready for the winter! My local tyre guy says that the standard tyre for the van is 195/70 R 15 Now, here is the crux - the 195s (Dunlop) are £25 cheaper than the 205s...
