Oh yeah duh… parts motorPeteParticipantDecember 14, 2018 at 4:06 pmPost count: 860
Sucks to read all of this. Hopefully the parts motor has what’s needed to fix it easily.
If it turns out the turbo was oil starved, as Ben suggested, is there any way to fit a dedicated oil pressure gauge/idiot light to the replacement supply line?emileeParticipantDecember 15, 2018 at 8:46 pmPost count: 50
Well. Had a lot of fun in San Diego at Weston’s wedding!! We even got Cole to dress up didn’t stop him from sporting his KCW in Disneyland the prior day 🙂 Since the vanagon didn’t work out for our Baja trip, we decided to tag along with the Bradburn family to Australia. We will figure out the vanagon when we get home. Happy holidays everybody!!

Yes! I’m sure we will be back down that way soon. We have to get revenge and take the vanagon on a Baja tripAndymParticipantDecember 17, 2018 at 10:48 pmPost count: 934
So I know a day back at KCW this will answer all questions.. but think it just broke the shaft inside the turbo? Between the hot and cold side? Just hope nothing went into the intake side of the motor.

We don’t know yet. I’m looking for a rental car to fit all 7 of us. If I can find one we will drive. If not we will flyJohn JonesKeymasterJanuary 10, 2019 at 9:48 pmPost count: 6326

Any updates? Greg who?FranzKeymasterFebruary 14, 2019 at 7:04 pmPost count: 3363
Funny you should ask. Greg is the guy who sold us the engine and swap parts boxeer.com @crepeattack
He was doing some work on the van today…..and seized the second turbo due to oil starvation.cookiemonster131ParticipantFebruary 15, 2019 at 9:40 amPost count: 135
