Question about 1997 Volkswagen Eurovan

1 Answer

T4 5 cyl engine not starting.

I have a Motorhome based on the T4 with the 5 cyl petrol engine that will not fire up.
If i put a small amount of petrol down the intake it starts for a few seconds.
I have taken the two pipes that go to the engine but nothing comes out when cranking.
I suspect the fuel pump/filter but do not know where it is located.
It was ok before i left it for a year
Any help much apprecieated

Sounds more like a relay fault check the fuel pump relay numbered 196 i think ot 164 you should hear pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on if you hear pump running you may have a crank sensor fault

How much damage(if any) will putting in tranny fluid cause without the engine running??


Not sure why you ask the question. You probably check the trans fluid level with the fluid warmed up and engine running. If you have an Owner's Manual, check there for the procedure. If you don't have one, I suggest checking the level as I show above, then add fluid if needed in small amounts with the engine running, check the level after adding every SMALL amount (you do not want to overfill the trans. and stop adding when it's between add and full.

I have a 1975 winnebago from dodge Someone messed with the spark plug wires I need the fireing order and how the wires go on the cap Dodge winnebago 1975 v8


You could have 3 different engines in that rig.
The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 for most Dodge 8 cyl engines.
And the odd cylinders are on the driver side.
The small block engines ( 318 ) have the distributor in the back, and the big block engines ( 360 440 ) are in the front.
The rotor on the big blocks turn counterclockwise. The dist cap is usaully stamped with cyl 1 as a starting point.

Petrol put into diesel car now it wont start


Drain all the petrol on your tank and so on the injection pump by pumping it. Open or loosen small tube going into the engine from the injection pump, to drain all petrol.

Make sure that petrol are remove from the engine fuel system, change fuel filter also. After removal bleed the engine.

Engine starts on 3 cyl when cold loading up engine cyl after warm engine will fire all 4 cyl what is the issue


Find out which cylinder is not firing. Before it starts firing pull the plug and see if it is wet. If it is I would say that the injector was stuck open.

I have a 1988 Class C motorhome with a Toyota truck cab with a 4 cyl engine, and I also have a 1986 Toyota flatbed truck with a 4 cyl engine. In addition to both engines being 4 cyl, they have identical...


If they are both the 22r motors and you strip them down to just the engine and put all the parts from the vehicle you want to put it in then it will work.
Hopefully you are working with complete vehicles, if not you can always buy the correct parts from a parts store or pick apart yard.
I hope you are building the flatbed, not the motorhome firetrap, because a 4 cylinder motor is about half of what is needed to push a motorhome and i have known several people that have had the 80-88 ish m.homes catch fire on long trips losing everything inside...........

Will not start. Been sitting since 1980.


hi, the cylinders are dry of petrol fumes and you need a (good battery), if all the mehanical parts (working fuel pump and clean fuel filter) o.k. and the spark plugs are clean and the (spark plug timming leads) are correct and points are set and the (ignition coil) is o.k. this engine should start. (if not) take off the air filter and check it is clean, leve the air filter off and put a very small amount (egg cup full) of clean petrol into port the carberreter (it will not start straight away because the plugs may be wet) or wrong (timming leads) if it splutters problebly not enough petrol or ignition faults (electrical points contacts dirty) all cars need metered fuel and air to run. wish you luck gerry
