Question about Volkswagen Microbus
The speed sensor (tachyometer sensor) has failed. How much does it cost to get a replacement part and how hard is it to fit yourself? Where about on the gearbox does it fit and how likely is it that the old one will be corroded by electrolysis between the copper sensor and the aluminium housing? Can you send me diagrams of where and how to fit it?

I have a Transporter 2.5 TDI that had similar problem. I found the small pipe that supplies boost pressure the the waste gate valve had worn through. This caused a over boost condition at revs over 2500 rpm and the computer reduced fuel to counteract the over boost. I would start looking in that area. You may find your solution there also.

Priced new output speed sensor €190, went to breakers yard, found similar sensor on mitsubsihi carisma, purchased €20, fitted same no problems since. Touch wood!

you need a haynes manual.because some new cars dont have dip stick to check tranny fluid.you have to locate a check fill plug on automatic transmission differential.its located on the right side.front of drive axle.for volkswagon you got buy the tool to squirt fluid in tranny.still get a manual it will show you place to put tranny oil.

SOURCE: vw sharan timing belt change?
your getting close to a change, especially if its a belt and not a chain. i know friends that had there belts changed out anywhere from 60k to 90k. Chains can go about twice as long as a belt. i you kept this car up on it servicing and dont abuse it. i"d say it"ll last till at least 70k.

Trouble Code: P0134
HO2S-11 (Bank 1 Sensor 1) No Activity Detected
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, engine running in closed loop at a speed over 3 mph for more than 2 minutes, and the PCM detected the HO2S signal stroke rationality was more than the threshold value (0.250 volt) during the Heated Oxygen Sensor Monitor test.
HO2S signal circuit is open or shorted to ground.HO2S has deteriorated, is contaminated or has failed.PCM has failed.YOUR HO2S SENSOR IS BAD,IT COST 80.00,USE EXACT FIT PART.EASY TO REMOVE,DISCONNECT ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR,GET WRENCH AND REMOVE.5 MINUTES TO DO.Trouble Code: P0336
Crankshaft Position Sensor Performance
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine running and the PCM detected the number of CKP sensor signals counted (between the reference mark gap). did not equal the Actual number of available teeth (i.e., the CKP signals. were out or the normal window" of operation with the CMP sensor. signals okay).
CKP sensor signal circuit connections loose (intermittent fault).CKP sensor wiring harness has a connection fault (intermittent).CKP to Target Wheel "air gap" is incorrect.CKP sensor is damaged or has failed.Must remove to see.Trouble Code: P0440
EVAP System Malfunction
Trouble Code Conditions: Engine started, ECT sensor signal less than158?F at startup, IAT sensor signal more than 9.5?F, system voltage over 10.0 volts engine runtime 15-20 minutes at cruise speed, then returned to idle speed, VSS indicating 0 mph, load value 2.2 ms, canister load factor less than 4.0, fuel tank pressure less than 0.5" Hg, then after the Idle Control system and Fuel Trim had stabilized, the PCM detected a fuel vapor leak (as small as 0.040") in the EVAP system during the EVAP Leak Test.
Fuel filler cap damaged, cross-threaded or loosely installed.Small hoses or cuts present in the EVAP vapor hoses/lines.EVAP purge valve is damaged or has failed.Here you are the symptons.
