SOURCE: tdi jetta is losing power on hills on freeway

MAP sensor. Look on Google to see what the readings should be when you test the circuits. Its real easy to check yourself, all you need is a multimeter. Classic syptom of a failing MAP sensor is power loss on inclines. Its the cheapest fis, failing that, there could be trouble with piston rings, or with the Impeller of the turbo being damaged. Good luck

find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

SOURCE: my volkswagon 2003 jetta tdi doesn't have any

check air filter. good chance it is clogged also the shut off valve could have serious carbon build up both of these items are easy to look at. also unplug the Mass air flow meter if power returns or is better good chance it will be that. which will have been killed by a clogged air filter.

I have a 2000 Jetta TDI and the yellow "check" light stays on all the time. It has been on for several years. Garages can't tell me what is wrong. The car runs fine.


When Check Engine Light ( CEL ) turn on, you need to have the codes read. Some places will read them for FREE. There are some other threads in this Forum that recommend to go to Autozone (or another parts store) where they will provide you a code reading free of charge. Get the exact code (like P0XXX) not just their and post it back here.

In THIS LINK could find additional interesting information about TDI FAQ.

Regarding warning lights:
- if the coolant temp light comes on, shut off the engine ASAP
- if the oil warning light comes on, shut off the engine ASAP
- if a falshign MIL/CEL comes on, shut off the engine ASAP

ASAP means driving to the berm of the highway right now and not waiting for the next exit. But if the MIL/CEL is not flashing, then it's not an urgent indicator.

Its possible that one simple unplug or any bad signal sensor. Are you recently make any mechanical job there?

Keep us updated.

2000 Jetta 1.9 TDI is reading 2 codes for electrical connecton


The torque converter clutch circuit is built onto the tranny. You can see the plugin. You can disconnect this and will be ok, Otherwise it is expensive to fix

The crank sensor sends informaiton to car's computer telling it to give power to the motor. If the crank sensor is shot, then your car probably will turn over but won't start. Or won't always start until it is completely bad and won't start at all.

A mechanic told me there really isn't a "tune up" per say for a Jetta TDI. Most importantly, the timing belt (w/water pump) replacement is the biggest concern. Change all the belts, check the glow plugs. If you drive on the highway a lot, the mass air flow sensor and its related hoses should be ok (carbon build up).

Do you have the Hayes book for your car? Most of the codes are written in that book. That's what I use.
