Hi i have a 2.o di transit it runs fine in all gears except 5th, it wont go past 2.5k revs or over 65 mph and on motorway hills it loses more power so even lorries pass me, could it have a limiter and if so can it be removed? Many thanks

The van starts and runs no problem, no smoke burns no oil, but as soon as it drives up even a slight incline there is no power, turbo checked ok, no fault showing had it on a modus computer and showing no faults. No mis fires or sputtering .

Hi I'm considering buying a 1999 LWB 2.5l Transit fully converted to a camper van and nicely done...117 000 miles...The buyer has spent 500 quid on welding the chassis recently, and protected it with Shultz.. There is also body rust but she's kept on top of it...It passed its MOT in Sept with only advisories about 2 tyres.... She wants 3 grand (I think it bit much) But my question is would you even consider this or does the chassis repair threaten a lot of future work? Any thoughts REALLY appreciated PS I don't know if I have listed the right model type! Thanks Katie

I have a 2004 Ford Transit Van Diesel, and it won't select a gear while the motor is running, but will while switched off and the ignition on. I've been told the gearbox is a ZF 3 Speed Automatic with Hydraulic Clutch. There is 3 push buttons on the dash R N D Rarely it will select a gear, but shouldn't be like that. I can't find any answers as to why this is doing this. Hopefully someone can give me the answer? It's an Ex Ambulance European model. 125 T350 Transit Van

Our 1986 Ford Transit 190 was converted into a Horsebox, after many years of pleasure, it's time that the cab has had it's day. My question is, we are hoping to keep the Luton/box and transfer to a newer cab possibly a year of manufacture between 2004 to 2007. So does anyone think there be a problem doing this, example the rails that the box sits on are not compatible. We do know of people that have done this, but normally this was done when the ages of both vehicles were much similar.

I recently purchased a reversing light switch , when I went to what I thought was the switch I assumed it was at the rear of the gearbox ,I was wrong . this was a plastic switch with a 2 pin plug which was just pushed into the housing . I am not as nimble as I used to be and I would like to no where it is fitted so it saves me a lot of time underneath the van. I would like some help PLEASE thanks Keith tarry
