Just need to know can I fit a back seat to my 2007 model vm ford transit, it's a work model with no windows it does have plug holes where something can go in I think. It's says TRW 19 on the plug hole area? Is that a code for a seat or anything

blown head gasket problems

published

Purchase Vm Cab Chassis new in 2010 has been a great vehicle, allways regularly serviced with lots of country driving. Just one concern about been told that they can blow a head gasket or worse around 150k t0 180k . My just hit 152k and guess what has happen, a blown head gasket or worse. Has anyone else heard of this or had this problem. deciding whether to sell once repaired ?.

Great van

i owned a transit VG for 12years and replaced it with a 2011 VM with 200,000 Klms on clock, yes a lot of K's for a 2011 model, but theses were highway klm's carting eggs, this is a excellent van, looks new, motor is very powerful, storage departments all over the van which is really handy, 1st gear is a bit slow, but wynds up after that, although the turbo is noisey, i have not replaced anything yet at 230,000 Klm. i did look hard for a van like this at the right price $23,000 on the road, i would not but anything lest that 2012 model now, otherwise you may inherite other peoples problems, and have it checked out by a accredited mechanic !!! i want a sprinter but cost too much, This van was a great choice and so far so good.

Well after sorting out the couple of little problems known with these models. I'm now very happy to report, the ol Transhit is running sweet, and I'm pretty happy at the moment....

to be honest I do not know ! my experience is with the new Transit custom long wheel base, great looking, goes well, the drivers seat did not suit me to the point with 500kms on the clock I traded it back to Ford, not a cheap experience !!
