mitch5 Posted October 16, 2019 Share Posted October 16, 2019 Hello! This is my first time posting and i am not sure if this is the correct place for my quest to find some used parts. On to the van Its an 83 westfalia vanagon with the ever so popular ej22 swapped in, i did not perform the original swap but have been correcting the myriad of problems that were created by the first installer. All this led to getting the van road worthy.....until it left me stranded. This was out in the aravipa wildernes in arizona, which made for a adventure in its self to get the van home. EJ22 setup stock 94 ej22(dual port heads) came out of an auto car according to ecu. is wired with a stock harness and the ecu is mounted to the chassis fans are controlled by van via thermistor. no vss but has never had a stalling issue recently rebuilt by myself 2000 miles ago? What happened? Was driving 45 mph down a road that is essentially a smooth dirt road, all the sudden the engine died. I thought oh hey maybe the battery came loose, nope. Pulled over and started troubled shooting, had fuel pressure and had air. Did not have spark. What i have checked Started looking for lose wiring and could not find anything.Pulled the plugs and they were wet(after repeated cranks)Timing belt was still on, have no yet checked full timing to see if it slippedhad 12v to ecucoil tested out with funny numbers but i will restestthe cam sensor had water in the connector(there were river crossings)need to check for pulses from the sensors A this point im suspicious of the cam/crank sensors, coil and even the ecu. If anyone has some other suggestions for things to check im open to suggestion. Since this van is used for long trips it was foolish of me not to carry spare parts, so im here to atleast fix that. While fixing this van im looking to start stockpiling some spare parts for future use. Im looking for a spare ecu(will find pn for one i have), coil and any engine senors.
