    Hi All I was on the M4 last week on a surf trip to Wales when I felt a slight loss of drive, looked in the mirror and noticed white smoke out the back and white smoke from the engine bay. The van was recovered back home where I checked it over. It dumped all its water, so I topped it up and saw...

    My T5 has suddenly started to use allot of coolant. It can drain the expansion tank doing a 70 mile run. If checked the expansion tank and replaced it. There is a very slight amount of mayonnaise on the top of the oil filler, but it really isn't much and the goop that is there is grey rather...

    I am having major problems with my 1.9 2006 T5, and the bill is climbing fast! While parked the rad and intercooler were damaged. This caused me to overheat fairly badly. I had them replaced ever since I have been loosing water and overheating. I have replaced the reservoir, the expansion vessel...

    Can anyone help with this? I have a 1998 Autosleeper T4 Trident. I noticed that the carpet was soaked at the back, just in front of the gas store. I got the hose on it and sprayed water over the top of the tailgate (with the tailgate closed), and eventually water started coming through the...

    Hi, I'm a new member just signed on today and and interested in picking peoples brains about a electrical issue I have with my 2004 T28 1.9 TDI van. The long and short of it is that the central locking stopped working and I traced it back to a leaky windscreen that had saturated the footwell...

    Sorry for posting this thread here but I'm really not sure where else to put it ? I have a serious water leak in my '99 T4 Caravelle with Aircon. The water bottle is draining every 40 mile or so and we've had a lot of steam coming up the windscreen air vents. This is compounded by the fact that...
