Hello, i have recently purchase an 85 vanagon westfalia, with a 93 turbo diesel toyota engine, and it does not fit, so some modifications were made, such as the matress on top of the engine on the back had to be cut ,, its like a big square, its not that bad, i can still put a thin matress on top of that square and its just not as soft,,, but my real problem is that i still have the same 4 gear vw transmition, so i am now in the quest of a vw golf 5 gear transmition that would fit , my other option was a subaru transmition ,, but it was kind of expensive, if anyone reading this know of other options please let me know ,, also i was told that i have to change the radiator & fan for a bigger one and also see a way to install some sort of fan right next to the engine on the back,, since diesel engines run hotter,, i am not really a gear head ,, dont know much about this things.... any comments or recommendations?

SOURCE: Oil Leak under the turbo on top of the valley baffle

ok ive experienced this same problem, my dad has the same year truck as u.first year powerstroke, you have to remove the turbo, there will be one bolt in the turbo stand, u will need a 10mm universal joint for a 1/4 inch drive ratchet, to remove it, but under the turbo stang there will be 2 O rings, replace those and u will be set to go.

SOURCE: smoke is coming from the dipstick, 6.5L turbo diesel

Sounds like you have a clogged PCV valve thats the valve that lets the gases that get into the crankcase be rerouted back into the intake. It's silver about two inches and is usually in a rubber fitting in the valve cover and will have a hose on the other end. it's no tools installation just pull the hose off pull it out and replace with a new one. thats the first thing i'd do - 10 mins and 10 bucks should do it

Have a 1999 F350 with the 5.4 Triton. While driving lost oil pressure. Then it was fluxuating. Now it acts like it's locked up. Any suggestions?


Hello Dreama Rhodes,

Those symptoms would lead to a SERIOUS OIL leak conclusion.

Hopefully the LOCK-UP is your F350... self defense shut down
rather than an actual seizure...

You need ti be checking oil levels like your engine's life depends on it... a lost drain plug, broken oil line, damaged or loose FILTER...

ALL
ought to be pretty obvious

Drive no where until you are sure your
ENGINE WILL SURVIVE.

My 2015 Isuzu Dmax 3 litre diesel auto 4x4 dual cab done 22500km is and has always used engine oil. Currently after 12000 km oil is down dipstick by 30-35mm. Total k's 22500. No towing is it normal


Its not normal to use any noticeable amount of oil between services these day's.

I would contact the dealership you purchased the vehicle from, and inform them of the oil consumption, they will have you monitor the level for a period of time.

Also, have you been using the correct grade of engine oil.

I would also check your turbo oil seals, and general check of engine for leakage.

Is the engine being filled with correct amount of oil, as some dipsticks can be out of calibration, causing overfilling and oil consumption down to correct level, something to check also.

Will a 2008 3.2lt turbo diesel triton engine fit into the 2005 triton engine bay (on the 2.8lt engine mounts) easy or not? Both daul cabs both 4wd both man


Probably will. But The computer system and wiring will not work on the 3.2. Before you start ripping out computers and wires. You need to make sure that both vehicles had the same transmission. If not, then your transmission won't work with the 3.2 computer.

Why is a 2001 VW tdi 1.9 with 93,000 miles blowing large cloud of white smoke? is this a major repair? after this happened checked and it is showing no oil or anything on dipstick for oil. oil was just...


I'm affraid it's the turbo that is faulty, and it's not a cheap job. the turbo has a oil pipe going to the turbo to lubricate the turbo bearing . When the bearing wears out the oil enters the engine and burns causing to smoke. Good luck

Mazda 6 2o diesel replaced turbo new unit same


There is a oil drain return from the turbo charger to the sump. If the sump oil level covers the outlet into the sump, oil will build excess pressure tin the turbo causing the sealing rings to leak oil in to the intake manifold. This would cause smokey exhaust and loss of oil. Try this. Drain the sump completely, refill with the exact quantity of oil to Mazda spec. Dip the oil and if the new oil level is lower than the full mark on the dipstick, you have found the cause of the problem. Mark this new level with a scriber or file and fill only to this new level. Hope this is the solution.

Locate the oil sending unit on a 95 dodge cummins turbo diesel truck


Im not exactly certain, it's been years since I had my hands on one, but you can try the very rear of the oil filter mount extension collar nearest to the firewall or on top near the center rear of the engine on the passenger side of the fuel distributor. Like I said it's been awhile. If all else fails look for the white plastic tubing coming from the firewall that feeds your guage and follow it forward. It may also be black but it will be all by itself either way.Best of luck! Dana

Try a VW car and van Breaker. You may need to take the pipe of the breakers car, so take some tools with you. You could try a motor factors other than VW. Hope that helps you.
