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?

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.

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
