I'm assuming when you say front, you are saying the front of the van, not the motor. Is this correct?

Check to make sure your battery isn't grounding out under the passenger seat.

Why do think it has low oil pressure? The idiot light or do you have an oil pressure gauge? Run 20w50 and an oem oil filter first before you go and tear down the motor. Most oil pressure issues are so ...

All depends on what is leaking. Tranny fluid or motor oil. I do know that the automatics are a DIY rebuild with simple tools. Either way, pull the tranny, replace rear main seal on motor, and replace ...

Is this a manual or automatic tranny? Sounds like a rear main seal, unless it's automatic trans fluid.

Use the "Right Stuff" black sealant. The stuff that comes in the gaskets sets is no good. It's basically the GM black sealant - also goes by other names.

I just had the oil changed...but ill check the level

What filter and grade of oil? Some people have success with using an OEM filter (mann or mahle) and 20w50 oil.

My flaps lists my Vanagon's as Kombi models. I'm sure someone else can explain the history as to why. I wouldn't worry about it.

Well all the suggestions about tank blockage were based on the assumption that the new pump was good. So wait and see. There's plenty of bad electrical parts on the shelves.

There are also a lot of ...

Sounds like a bad spot on the AFM. I had to readjust the sweaper arm due to a worn area on the board. YMMV.

Try a 12 point socket. Get a really cheap, and I mean cheap socket. Sometimes the crappy tools are thinner walled and will work. I've had to do this with some stuff in the past. Call P.O. to see what ...

Walt is probably correct. The crap in the tank plugs the screened outlet, causing the pump to starve and cavitate. Check the pump connections and all grounds, you may get lucky.
