This Mk2 Ford Transit was introduced in October 2000 and continued until 2006. Seemingly innumerable variations of body types and styles were available, mounted on long-, medium- or short-wheelbase chassis. The Transit was available with 2.0 and 2.4 litre turbocharged diesel engines and a 2.3 litre petrol engine. As a departure from previous Transit vehicles, it was available with either front wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. The 2.0-litre models has a 5-speed all synchromesh manual transmission, whereas the 2.4-litre model had either a 5- or 6-speed unit, according to engine power output. Standard and optional equipment included power steering, air conditioning, remote central locking, electric windows, anti-lock brakes and supplemental restraint systems. For the home mechanic, the Transit is a relatively straightforward vehicle to maintain, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Ford repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our repair manual for the Ford Transit is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
