Hopefully Adrian will get the LT on the road for me soon, so we will find out about VW's Rory.

Air cooled is fine if you like taking a holiday on the hard shoulder of the closest motorway to your leaving destination.
I will say they are very economical, they don't use much fuel on the back of a recovery wagon.

I can see where your coming from with the engine codes, that would be fine if it was from when the engine was fitted.
I drove it for three days with that engine in itt.
The engine is fine when it's running, just won't start all of a sudden.

I have been looking on lots of forums about the Vivaro/Traffic van and it seems that it's a common problem with them, but there never seams to be the answer to the problem on these forums,
You just get (yer it's sorted now thanks). No good to anyone else with the same problems.

Its not the immobiliser is it? Seems odd that it wants to fire after you just unlock it. If it was a mechanical issue then unlocking it wouldn't make any difference surely?

It's got to be some kind of electrical problem, but it's finding out what.
When we fitted the engine it started up no problems, then developed this problem 3 days after.

The key fob locks and unlocks the van, so that's communicating with ok,
I have put new batteries in both of them so they are fine.

It's starting to get too me now, it's sat in the yard doing nothing, whilst I'm borrowing a little Peugeot van that's far to small for what I need.

Found out what the problem was in the end,
Broken wire at the plug on the cam sensor, cut the wire back, replaced the plug and away we go.

Sold the bloody van now before something else goes wrong with it.
Good riddance!.

I am suprised that didn't show up when codes were read. I had a fiesta brought to me with a similar problem with crank sensor, the chap had codes read & was told he needed a crank sensor so he changed it himself it would sometimes start & cut out or just fire occasionally. When I read codes it showed crank sensor was still at fault so looked at wiring & found it had been unclipped & had been rubbing the o/s drive shaft.
