The fan belt on my VW T5 2.0 kombi is braking constantly. What can be the problem?

It may be out of alignment - check that all the pulleys are level.

Try rocking all the pulleys to check for wear and security. Loose bolts or worn bearings in a pulley can cause it to rock as it spins - this puts undue stress on the belt.

Quite often the bearings in a water pump wear allowing that pulley to rock and twist. Some models of cars state that the water pump should be replaced when the belt is changed (not your model..).

My diesel pump is not pumping what must i do

Fill your fuel filter all the way up and take precaution not to get any air into pump. Try this several times. Once you get air into some pumps it can be very hard to bleed it off. There should be some way to bleed. Look on pump for bleeder.

How do I bleed the water system on a VW Kombi the moment I blew the head due to overheating for the 2nd time....

To bleed the cooling system effectively you will need to use a cooling system charge unit.Your local VW Commercial dealer has this tool or it can be purchased from a reputable tool dealer e.g Snap-On,Mac,Sealey etc.When used with a compressed air feed,this tool applies a vacuum to the cooling system and draws ALL the air out before replenishing the coolant (this tool uses a sealed system so no chance of air entering system).This STOPS hot spots in the clinder head and turbo

How to change a water pump on a 2000 intrepid 3.2 engine

3.2L & 3.5L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
    WARNING Do not use pliers to open the plastic drain.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    NOTE It is good practice to turn the crankshaft until the No. 1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of its compression stroke (firing position).
    Negative battery cable Coolant recovery cap and open the thermostat bleed valve Drive belts Timing belt Water pump mounting bolts, noting the position of the longer bolt Water pump. Discard the O-ring seal.
  4. Clean the gasket sealing surfaces, being careful not to scratch the aluminum surfaces.

    Fig. Water pump bolt locations, make sure to note the position of the longer bolt
To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    WARNING Rotate the pump and check for freedom of movement.
    New O-ring and wet with clean coolant prior to installation. Be sure to keep the new O-ring free of any oil or grease. Water pump with a new O-ring. Torque the water pump-to-engine bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm). Timing belt Drive belts
  2. Fill the cooling system by performing the following procedure:
    1. Close the radiator drain.
    2. Open the thermostat bleed valve. Install a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) clear hose about 48 in. (1.2m) long to the end of the bleed valve and the other end into a clean container. The intent is to keep coolant off of the drive belt(s).
    3. Slowly, refill the coolant recovery bottle until a steady stream of coolant flows out of the thermostat bleed valve. Gently squeeze the upper radiator hose until all of the air is removed from the system.
    4. Close the bleed valve and continue to fill the coolant recovery bottle to the proper level. Install the cap on the bottle and remove the hose from the bleed valve.
  3. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperatures.
  4. Check the cooling system for leaks and correct coolant level.
    WARNING Be sure that the thermostat bleed valve is closed once the cooling system has been bled of any trapped air.

Good luck (remember rated this).

Antifreeze leaking underneath the water pump

If you have coolant leaking from under the water pump,you will more than likely need a new pump. Water pumps have a bleed hole built in to show if the pump seal is gone. If it is not leaking from the bleed hole, it may be from the gasket that seals the pump to the engine or it may be leaking from somewhere above the pump and collecting at that point. Good luck Moe
