About Volkswagen Transporter

Following close on the heels of the Volkswagen Beetle in the lineup, Volkswagen Transporter has been built by a famous German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen, shorten to VW, since 1950 as a light commercial vehicle. Originally introduced to break the stereotype of VW van or Microbus is always the magic bus that was the flower children's vehicle of choice, Transporter became a small but useful vehicle. In fact, Transporter now is marketed worldwide under different names, the original Transporter name was discontinued in the United States after 1979 model year, which means it only existed in two generations in the America.
The first-generation Volkswagen Transporter was produced from 1950 to 1967 also named as Type 2 and informally called the Microbus, Splitscreen or Splittie. Built based on the Volkswagen Groupe T1 platform, Transporter was offered in four body styles, 5-door panel van, 5-door minivan, 2-doro pickup (regular cab) and 3-door pickup (crew cab). It came in base and DeLuxe trim levels and got several engine options ranging from 1.1 L flat 4-cylinder engine to 1.5 L flat 4-cylidner engines. The more recent Transporter arrived at in late 1967 as a 1968 model. It was still offered in four body styles, 4-door panel van, 4-door minibus, 2-door pickup (regular cab) and 3-door pickup (crew cab). during this generation, Volkswagen Transporter was powered by engines varying from 1.6 L flat-four to 2.0 L flat-four engines and engines sent power through 4-speed manual and 3-speed automatic transmissions to the rear wheels.

Volkswagen Transporter Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

No matter how popular and how good Volkswagen Transporter was, now, the youngest Transporter is at least forty-eight years old. If you still have other versions of the more recent Transporter carrying other names, you had better be familiar with these common problems on it:
First, for old model like Volkswagen Transporter, engine failure is definitely an unavoidable problem. I believe every driver including those who do not have much knowledge about working principle of automobiles will know the seriousness of this issue. Since engine problem not only decreases the overall quality of a vehicle, it also can shorten the vehicle's lifespan, you are advised to solve it as early as you can. Many experienced Transporter concluded some recognizable and simple symptoms of this issue such as whining, squealing or rattling from the engine; roughly running, misfiring, and stalling engine; hard starting or inability to start; even losing power while acceleration and poor fuel economy. Under such circumstance, you are supposed to inspect if the Transporter spark plug, air filter, oil filter, engine mount, fuel pump, throttle body, drive belt and throttle body gasket immediately.
Second, transmission failure is also a common problem on VW models, including Volkswagen Transporter. It is a pity that many Transporter owners have no idea about this issue and even underestimate the consequences it could bring or overlook some signs of transmission failure. For example, the clunking and grinding noises from underneath the vehicle are often seen as the friction between rocks and tires. There will also be leaking transmission fluids on the ground, after a while, you will find the wrong gear readings, vehicle starting in another gear or refusing to go into any gear, finally, you will find hard to shift the gear and have problem in driving the vehicle even suffer from unsmooth ride. All these could be attributed to the Transporter transmission assembly, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, clutch fork and shift cable.
But apart from above mentioned two common problems on Volkswagen Transporter, you need to pay more attention to some vulnerable auto parts on it as some of them just could not last as long as the vehicle could. You need to perform routine maintenance on Transporter seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, cabin air filter, fog light, headlight and antenna to make sure safe and comfortable ride.
