I have a 2001 metallic blue Eurovan weekender that I almost - absolutely love. I purchased it 2 years ago with the intent to see the world and nature. I have had to spend $5000 on it to fix alternator, cam timers, air conditioning and what not's. It is now back in the shop with a couple codes indicating out of sync cam shaft. Probably due to poor maintenance before I purchased it. I love everything about it, but the engine. I would like to keep it until I die, but I can't keep on paying the mechanic. I am pretty handy and used to fix my Audi 4000s all the time. Is it worth it to keep it and DIY? I so much wish that VW built the Eurovan with a little more thought into the engine, and what I hear, transmission. If they did, this would be the best thing ever, apart from it being electric.
