    Looking at a 1997 VW Transporter T4SWB Manual Diesel this week but it’s done 167000 miles! Anyone know how long they go for, she is in very good shape springs just been done paint job all the cosmetics, I’ll be able to do engine work myself with a bit of Google help, just wondered if anyone had any good tips for me to look at. :thumb:

    Had a few T4s in the past. The engines are pretty much indestructible, The gearstick can show wear and is a bit like stirring a pudding but thats about all. The last one I had was a Dehla conversion, good van.

    I was told they easily do 300,000 or more, I am on my second one,not because of the mileage change of Motorhome, look on the VW T4 Owners forum, lots of info and help on there, also meets every month, I have been to a few.
