Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

2003 Jetta with a diesel motor

I am having problems with my car stalling out or just losing power at 75 to 80 mph. The fact that the problem only exists at these speeds leads me to believe that it has nothing to do with the fuel filter, maybe a air flow sensor or some other form of fuel restriction. What suggestions to this solution can you offer.

Please make sure earth/ground points are tight and free of dirt and corrosion. especially knowing this is off road car. fuses are clean. charge relay is working correctly, main fuse CONNECTIONS are good. the fact that it happens when you move , means most likely a loose connection.

Bad news, on the right hand side of the engine is a cover with 4 clips on it. I bet when you remove it, you will find a munched timing belt. It will be an expensive fix.

Why does my 91 VW Jetta stall out and lose power while driving?


I had a similar problem and the mechanic diagnosed it as a problem with the ignition coil. So you might want to get that checked.

Don't know if it applies to your diesel but most later gas engined vehicles have a 'cold start' valve that supplies additional fuel to the fuel/air mix along with boosting the idle speed until some warming of the engine is sensed.

Stalling


I suggest trying a diesel additive in your tank if you haven't been using it. It is available at Walmart as I use it all the time. I have 64K miles on my 06 Jetta TDI with not problems. You also could have something in your tank causing the problem. (condensation)
