Re: cruising / top speed

I got done in my work car, not the van. I dont think you can actually speed on a motorway in one can you? However could get done in a 30/40 area.!

Re: cruising / top speed

My Bluestar also does that easily, i keep the reigns on it because of the mpg. (That and because ive had recently to go to the naughty girl driving school) Ive always let my vans go the speed they want but this one wants to get me into trouble.

Re: Vanagon Syndrome??? Totally at a loss

The story so far….1991 T25 2.1DJ automatic

Sorry looking for clues for my own wagon which is misbehaving. I have a 2.1. Petrol automatic, 1991. What does the DJ stand for. Are you diesel? In which case your solutions are no good for me?

Is it normal?

Having always had Aircooled and now in a watercooled I cant help wondering if it is normal for your fan to come on when you park your van? Ive only been about ten mile?
