4WD Questions

Ok cool, Thanks Shaun. From now on I'll always do a little reversing when I take it out of 4WD. I'm also going to continue to stop before switching between 2 & 4. I'm also only going use the 4WD at lower speeds.

4WD Questions

Hello folks, We're already well into winter here in southern Ontario, and with that being said I have a few 4WD questions that I really should have sorted out years ago. I've owned my van for almost 7 years now, and the 4WD is most excellent in the winter months. But I've never been 100% sure on how...

I did it! 1998 L300

Very nice, and welcome to the fold. I have a 1993 L300 that I've owned for almost 7 years now. It's been the best used vehicle I've ever owned. I thought '93 was the last year for the L300, but I think it remained in production until 2001, or something like that. I know the L400 was introduced in '0...

Need part number for hatchback strut

Or you just send your struts to strutwise.com and have them rebuilt. They did mine several years ago (I live in Ontario) and it was the best thing I ever did to my van. Now the hatch stays up, even with a Fiamma Bike Rack attached to it. 8-)

Starter Motor Issues

Thanks for this Growler. After 4 vodkas in, I decided to clear my mind and think about what I may have overlooked that's simple. So I climbed in the van, put the shifter into neutral and cranked it over. Boom, it started right up!! I then put it back in park and shut it off. It started right back up...

Starter Motor Issues

Well I think I found the part number. It's MD072654. I went on amayama.com and it sells for about $1000 bucks!!! Yikes :o

So that's outta the question. I guess I'll see if I can find someone to rebuild the original starter :-(

And in the meantime, I believe I'll have one more cocktail

Starter Motor Issues

Hello folks, After fixing my leaking fuel tank woes, I'm now stuck with another problem. I went to start up my van this afternoon, but no dice:( I turned the key, waited for the glow plug click then turned the key all the way. All I ended up with was one click sound after the glow plug click sound. ...

This is a killer resource!! I ended up finding a sender from this and ordering it from Amayama.

More Leaking Fuel Tank Woes:(

I posted a few weeks ago about my '93 Super Exceed springing a leak from the front fuel tank where the seam is about half way up the tank. I decided the easiest thing to do was to have my mechanic remove the tank and have it sent to a place that re seals them with some sort of bladder on the inside ...

Leaking Fuel Tank

I've had my head underneath the van lots over the years, but it's currently at the VW Dealership and I couldn't remember what they looked like. I saw that awesome post you shared Growler while poking around on the internet earlier today. Unfortunately, the tank that's for sale on ebay in the UK is t...

Leaking Fuel Tank

Thanks for the responses fellas. I've heard amazing things about that Por 15 stuff. Something else I forgot to ask is whether or not the two fuel tanks are the same size and shape? The new one that's listed on ebay doesn't specify this. Anyway, I've had my mechanic suck the fuel out of the tank so i...

Leaking Fuel Tank

Hello folks, A few weeks ago I posted about hard starting on my van. It was suggested that I may have some fuel lines that need to be replaced. I just got back from a trip to Jamaica, and finally getting around to dealing with this issue now. I took my van to my local Volkswagen dealer as I have a f...

Delayed Starting & Low Idle

Well Growler, once again you're exactly spot on!! I've been visiting at a friend's over the weekend. I parked my van in his super clean garage with a concrete floor. I notice diesel fuel on the floor about where the sliding door is, on that side when I moved the van. I'll check on those fuel lines a...

Delayed Starting & Low Idle

Hello folks, After enjoying almost 7 years of worry free driving with my 1993 Mitsubishi Delica L300, I've got a little glitch happening intermittently when starting it up. Usually I just turn the key, wait for the click and boom, it fires right up. lately it's been turning over for about 3 - 5 seco...

L300 Crystal Lite manual shades? Or non working power shades?

This is excellent. What you're saying makes sense. You really have to treat the rust from the inside to do this fix properly. I bought mine with these rust spots on the roof, but over my 7 years of ownership, they've not gotten all that much worse. My van has been rock solid and hands down the best ...
