    Which van to do first

    Hi newbie to posting but have been looking and reading for some time ! Have many questions to ask as when it comes to mechanics Iím a bit off a f#}k wit !!!! Have a lwb 2.4 which has been sat on the drive for far too long and become an extension to my shed and also a 2.5 tdi which is on the road but has its faults !! It likes to mark its territory which not only costs on topping up is mot fail I here ! Would like them both running and fitted out that way I can sleep on 1 with the dog and the better half can either sleep in the other or drive herself to a b@b ! Her choice! Will add pics tomorrow if I can work it out !!! Computer half wit also ! Plus itís beer oíclock!!!!!!!

    Two promising vans there mate. Does the one not start or just not been run for ages. As for the oil leak, if its washed off when you take for test if its not absolutely pissing out a sensible tester will advice and pass. Keep us updated .

    Running out as fast as I put it in !! Hence saying looking at filter ! At least its marking its territory with nice clear oil but costing more in oil than deisel nearly ! Which makes me wonder if oil filter is loose !!! Booked into garage for next week drove off to go to Aldi and half way there flashing engine management light !!! Dose this van know itís nearly Christmas and I have other things to be wasting / spending my money on!!!

    Definitely needs sorting then, could be oil pressure switch. Not so familiar with the 2.4 and 2.5 but would have thought there would be an oil pressure switch on the filter housing. If its that they are pennies and you should be able to do yourself. Have a look up the back of the motor in the day light with it running if you can.
