Jock,

I have been doing some asking around and for a vehicle that is out of warranty, get a second opinion from an independent garage. It seems all to easy for these VW garages to present a wealth of problems when nobody is going to challenge their diagnosis. I am sure there are many great mechanics working in dealerships, but remember a truly good mechanic can make a lot more money in a small independent business or out on his own.

If you thought your van was ok, how come everything on it is at breakdown point? Doesn't seem right, does it? If things were failing badly, you would have noticed surely? How come you have had no actual failures, no warning lights, no smoke...?

Presented with a list like that, I'd be taking it to an independent to see what he would fix to keep it running well.

I wonder how VW at Milton Keynes would feel if a large number of vans were to turn up with known faults,that they seem reluctant to admit.I am sure it would attract some un wanted press attention.

Hmmmm, sounds kinda familiar after a long battle with VW they agreed to replace my gearbox (tiptronic) (long story!) anyways, as a result of the dealer getting the van into their workshop they discovered that there was engine oil in the coolant and steering fluid!!! As the gearbox was being sorted out I felt obliged to have them take care of the problem. Cost me nearly £1000 with special discount!!!!!
I now realise that it's a common problem!

hi, being new and inexperienced with all this I am wondering if any1 can tell me what years this affects, as I have just agreed to buy a 2.5 174 on a 55 plate. Also how do I go about finding out whether it would be affected.

Well I just rang the Listers Worcester & got them to check mine out. Yes there is a recall for the oil cooler & seals issue but only certain numbers within a chassis range. Luckily mine is not affected, but as mentioned previously worth a phonecall.

Maybe, maybe not.  Does it currently have any oil in the coolant (or power steering fluid) ?

Check in drivers side door opening for any stickers for campaigns that have been applied to your van to see if the oil cooler has already been replaced.  You can also ask a dealer whether your van is affected (they'll need your rego # or VIN).

I HAVE OIL IN POWERSTEERING RESEVOIR. 2006 2.5 MULTIVAN. AFTER SEARCHING FORUMS I FIND THE BLOWN SEAL IS A KNOWN PROBLEM AND VW ARE AWARE OF IT.
I PHONE LOCAL VW DEALER AND ASK IF THERE IS A RECALL. SHE LOOKS UP MY VIN AND SAYS NO. I WHINGE AND TELL HER THAT THERE MUST BE. SHE GETS SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS ENGLISH TO SPEAK TO ME (IM IN GERMANY). I REPEAT THE ISSUE. HE TELLS ME THERE IS NO RECALL BUT THERE MIGHT BE A "TPE"
APPARENTLY A RECALL IS A MANDATORY THING WHERE VW HAVE TO ASK YOU TO COME IN (PERHAPS SAFETY RELATED). A TPE IS A KNOWN ISSUE. -HOPEFULLY OBLIGED TO FIX-. ILL FIND OUT WHEN I BRING IT IN IN A COUPLE OF DAYS.

You can try for a "good will" contribution from VW, but I wouldn't hold my breath while I'm waiting .....

Might be worth finding out if VW did a free fix for Toureg owners (they have for other R5 engine faults ie oil pump).

There's no need to shout Wink

TPI is Technical Product Information. TSB is Technical Service Bulletin.

I dunno. I think recalls are accompanied by a TSB and are done free. TPI, I think, clarifies a service procedure or something like that. 

You need someone who works for VW or knows their procedures to answer the question, really. Try maxandcaddy on here...

its starting to sound like ill have to do it myself, anyone familiar with the procedure?
I read I have to buy a entire expensive pump just to get the seal, is that still true?

as expected VW phoned and said the mileage is too high so they wont cover it despite the pws seal failure not being a mileage related, wear and tear part. They know its a design fault - We all know its a design fault.

I'm thinking about making a blog about the seal problem to try to embarrass VW into doing the right thing.
