Hard starting in the morning but if I stop and turn engine off it will not start again until much later and barely then. Runs ok when it finally gets going.

The lights in the rear located in the Galley section, when I use the test button, nothing lights up. The rear battery appears to have some juice left, as the interior lights in the rear and the water pump for the sink and rear shower area work

Hi, my 1997 VW Eurovan hard shifting from 1st to 2nd and third gear is too short. I went to transmission shop and they said this is a valve body. They change it but it didn't work. Next they said they need to rebuild transmission. They did it but it didn't work two. After that they said I need a new transmission control module. I bought it but it still doesn't work. Any suggestions. Thank you very much.

My running headlights are fine, but when I turn on the headlights for night driving, I get no beams, low nor high. I do have dash lights, side orange lights and tail lights come on. All fuses are good. Since the running lights work, I'm thinking the bulbs are good. Since the other lights come on, I think the switch is good. Is there a relay that might be faulty? I'm not sure what the problem could be. Tnx. for your help. D

The check engine light has given me error code 00515. The problem has been identified as a bad ECM module, resulting from the replacement of my exhaust system (this is what I was told by the shop that did the damage). Does this make sense? Looking for a replacement module or repair of my current ECM. Part # 023906024A

When engine shuts off the headlight are now staying on and are very dim. Drains battery

Comes on after car has been running 5-10 minutes

the van does not accelerate at all on the highway... takes a while to get up to 55 miles an hour .... why is something wrong

shifter won't manually shift into lower gears. shifts fine automatically

I need to replace the thermostat in the 1995 Volkswagen Rialta 2.5 liter engine. Will it be the same as the 1995 2.5L Eurovan?

To do this I need to disassemble the front grill but can not determine how to do this.

VW eurovan with a 1998 Rialta camper

Checked the fuse checked the bulbs all seems to be good.

No warning light. Pull off the road . Turn off engine . Turn back on , hard to put into gear. Nothing leaking ?

After flooring the gas pedal, the engine starts back up and idles really roughly, sometimes shuts off. After a minute or so of revving it a little, the problem goes away. On really hot days it shuts off by itself at intersections when it should be idling. Could it be some kind of vapor lock in the fuel line? Or a computer or sensor problem? The overheat light comes on at erratic intervals, even if the engine is still cold. We replaced the temperature sensor for it already. Also the fan for the air conditioning seems to run fast/slow, fast slow. No diagnostic codes about it, several car mechanics have not been able to find a solution.

Any advice appreciated- where to list, how to find other VW Fans.

It's in a 1995 Winnabago Rialta. Manufacturer dat is 4/1994.

Everything works great, but transmission makes noise that appears to be normal. Oil advances may provide a quieter ride.

after getting gas, I pushed the trip mileage button & suddenly the speedometer didn't work at all. Is this expensive to fix?

Has happened a couple times and after shutting off it sounds like gas running back into the tank. The next morning it started fine and ran fine. Last time it went to dealership and got new pcv valves and mass air flow sensor and has done it again

I cannot get the shift into park or the lower ranges every so often. Thanks!

It will start well, runs and idles well, then dies. Got me scratching my head!

We have a 1997 six-cylinder eurovan camper. We've had no problem with the transmission. No sign of any problems. We started it after sitting overnight and transmission fluid started pouring out. We drove about quarter mile before noticing it. Couldn't drive it any further. p0740 and P0730. All the fluid had poured out. We towed it to a good shop. They checked hoses etc and said we need to rebuild our transmission! Expensive and logistically complicated! But, weird w no previous sign of trouble and a cold engine. Any explanation?? Thanks

The light is near the floor right side. Small light, maybe 2"x2.5". Battery drained, is this light supposed to be off, if so, how do I do it?

Riding down the highway she stopped abruptly no warning just lost all power (non electrical). New plugs cap rotor. today i bough a new ignition coil still nothing. Help please!

The heater/air condition controls do not light up. Are they suppose to? If so, where is the fuse box?

Old age has worn them ragged. Stick shift is sloppy and finding gears is getting harder and harder

Whenever I lock the doors with key, they immediately unlock and remain unlocked. Do you know what may be causing this? It has never happened before and all of a sudden just started to act this way and does every attempt now. Suggestion(s) on how to repair?
