Question about Volkswagen Camper
A common problem can be the wires to the O2 sensor, and check the connections to the Air Flow Meter. Vanagons are also prone to something called Vanagon Syndrom, which is realted to faulty ground connections. So, check ALL the chassy grounds, by the starter, transmission, battery etc. Disconnect, wire-brush apply di-electric grease and reconnect. Lastly, many of the sensors which feed signals to the ECU could have bad connections, or wires which have breaks or cracks that could lead to corrosion inside the wire increasing resistance. Oh, one more thought, the vaccum lines on Vanagon are covered with cloth and if you pull them off, you can sometimes see cracks in the rubber. The vaccum leaks can also contribute to the problem. Now I would be remiss to not warn you about changing the fuel lines on your nearly 25 year old van. The rubber on these lines have been known to breakdown and leak, leading to engine fires. There is a great web-site called vanagon.com that has all sorts of great informaion on these wonderful vans. I've owned my 84 Vanagon Westy for 23 years. Hope you find this helpful!
