VW bora 99, TDI, lost power while driving,

Revs went from 3,000 rpm to zero. Pump relay was replaced and car was fine except when rev to 4,000rpm power is lost again but doesn't cut out, just drops and then powers back up.
Timing was cheked and is fine.
Replaced mass air fow sensor last year.

Any ideas of what is wrong would be great.
Thanks

Nothing, you have hit the rev limiter. The up and down is the computer controlling the rpm. If you drive it, it should rev past 3,000. The computer is designed to keep free wheeling rpm to that level. It will only allow a higher rpm if vehicle is in gear and moving with a load.

VW Bora when in first gear up until 2000 revs car has not much power and shakes at the front end even when warm!


Check your spark plugs and leads, lack of power at lower revs is usually due to poor spark.

Have a polo 1.4 tdi and the car does not rev up ! no fault codes injectors have been changed,turbo checked, only rev's up to 1000 rpm and then smokes bad


It may be a few different problems but try this first.Take the air filter out and try the engine, then.If its a lot different the filter may be clogged.This will cost zero but may give you an answer.Hope this helps. PS dont go driving around without the air filter as it will damage the motor

VW Bora 2.0 L petrol automatic


Your automatic choke warrants a look at and adjusting. If the air filter looks like its full of dust Etc' get it replaced. Clogged air filters will ruin your fuel efficiency no end.Find someone who knows what to look for.

Having supptering at 4,000rpm


If the car is in park and you rev the eninge up with no load the computer in th car will hit a rev limiter not allowng the engine to blow up.It will sound bad but there is nothing wrong with your car.Now on the other hand if your driving down the road and this is going on you could have a fuel or ignition problem.
