    Hi all, I have a T4 2.4d and would like it turbocharged and cruise control fitted, can anyone recommend a mechanic in kent and give me an idea of how much that may cost....ish?
  2. Engine & Gearbox
    I have a problem with exhaust gases leaking from close to the turbo. There is a smell of fumes in the cab and soot can be seen on the bulk head. It's a 2007 2.5 tdi, engine code BPC. I had the turbo overhauled last summer by a local turbo specialist. There were other problems with the van last...
  3. Technical Articles
    I am narrowing it down to this particular engine to simplify and stop the usual time consuming old natter that goes on for hours without any conclusions! Sorry about that! I am old and impatient, so straight to the point: By design, there is some form of mesh inside the orifices and compartments...

    Hello all, I'd appreciate some assistance as I'm at the limit of my technical ability with this one; VW T5 2008 1.9L BRR engine. Engine emissions light came on after the van stood still for 2 weeks (cheers COVID). This was accompanied by a huge loss of boost (like none) and the turbo isn't...

    Hi All, thought id share a story and ask for a bit of technical advise. Long story cut short turbo blew on my 05 1.9TDI with about 100K on the clock. Took to a garage with a good reputation who replaced the turbo, oil feed pipe and few other bits. Now this turbo blew within 100 miles. Garage...

    2008 Multivan 2,5TDI 174HP BPC Hi guys I would like some opinions here. I have been having smoke leaks on my exhaust for a while. After a long search, after removing and inspecting the turbo, and refitting, I discover the leaks come from the turbo itself. There are leaks in the exhaust...

    Hi everyone, I'd like to pick some brains if I may....? I believe the turbo on my T4 is cream crackered, there is oil coming from where it shouldn't be (boost gauge nipple). The advice I've been given to get get it replaced, which is fine. However I wanted to see if this was a job I could do...

    Apologies, posted this in the T4 forum when I thought it was the t5. Have recreated it there, but can't see how to delete. Arrgh, After much effort, I have the turbo fully released but I cannot get the turbo oil return pipe off. Undoing the 22mm pipe hex from the van causes the pipe to flex as...

    Hi All, Merry Christmas, I have a very lovely T5, 2.5 Auto with tip gearbox. Just lately it has started to "judder" when changing up between 4th and 5th and 5th to 6th. Once the gear is changed it settles down but I am concerned that this might be an underlying issue that will cause a much...

    i am trying to locate a turbo boost actuator for my 85PS 2004 engine code AXC. so far i only found a complete turbo, which would fit my van, including the actuator, which is bolted on the unit... it would be quite expensive. first investigations indicate, that my actuator stopped moving...
  14. Engine & Gearbox
    I've recently bought a turbo from 'Direct Turbos UK' for my 2.5L 2006 T5. The turbo is fully fitted but the aluminium air intake elbow that I have is too large and won't fit. After reading some other threads I've found that I need the smaller elbow with part number 7H0129654B. TPS said they...

  16. Engine & Gearbox
    Hello again, so you may have seen my last post where I had bought what turned out to be a very dicky T4 and the turbo had blown up resulting in a runaway (I managed to stall it pretty quickly). So we replaced the turbo (& exhaust - needed doing anyway - and cat)... followed all proper...
  17. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi All I have a 2000 reg 1.9TD - idles and runs sweetly but has just started screeching about 2000rpm. I had a listen around the top of the engine and sounds like it's coming from the vicinity of the turbo. So far I have re-sealed the inlet manifold gasket (turbo output/below the EGR) and...
  18. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi there, as most here I'd like to get a little more oumph from my 1993 AAB Westfalia Camper. Here in Canada, we didn't have the 2.5 TDI nor that the 2.4 D sold in the US ... So our power upgrades are limited. I've been reading posts here and there trying to gather the best option for : 1)...

    Hi, Van is on 220000 km (~136701.662 miles according to google's conversation it seems). Normally only using van around every second weekend. In February I let the main dealer replace the water pump for pre-cautionary reasons as the kilometers were beyond for when it was due to be replaced...
  20. LT & Crafter
    Hi All, First post here - it's been a great use over the last year or so, thanks all. I've got an 2008 Crafter. I've currently got the front of the Crafter Open as I'm doing the cambelt, replacing the main crankshaft pulley, water pump, Lambda Sensor, aux belt and getting rid of the EGR...
