Thread: My van aint running right!

  1. #1

    My van aint running right!

    Hi all im Andy and i have just bought a 1975 T2 yippee!! and would really like to know who the best VW mechanics are in Stafford ?
    My van aint running right i think i could have (air inleakage or Vacuum leak) i have done the wd40 spray test but need to do it again to be sure.
    Two different garages have tuned /set the timing/ Valves/points ect & the van is still not right

    The only way i can best describe the problem is what happened to me once when i used to have a mk3 cortina years ago..driving the VW feels like its running on 3 cylinders until you accelerate more then it feels like the 4th cylinder kicks in,it needs loads of revs to pull off at a junction i cant pull off smoothly at all.
    It will idle altho lumpy and a few misses when its warm.
    Any garage or mobile VW expert recommendations would be ACE!!!
