1998 Clubman

Post by mcubbin on Sun Jun 18, 2017 11:48 pm

Hi, I have been looking for a van for a while and have come across a 1998 clubman with a 2.5 tdi engine, I thought it was only the later vans that had the 2.5, or were there different versions of this engine?

The VW Transporter wiki is a good source for engine/transmission variants, or in this case the VW T4 stub:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Transporter_(T4)

As you can see, they introduced a 2.5 litre TDI variant in 1998, but it's significantly different from the later 2.5 5-cylinder fitted to the T5. The latter has the distinctive PD injection system, while that on the T4 does not.

Thanks for that, yes I have had a couple of T5's a 1.9 and a 2.5, although the 2.5 was a more powerful motor I had many problems with it, not so with the 1.9 which I preferred, I had it remapped to 102 bhp and problem free in my ownership. But the 1998 van has the same 2.5 tdi as in the later t4's in the early 2000's?
