1999 vw golf gti turbo no boost and hesitant/ intermitent ?

I had it remapped this year, (apparently 190bhp so they said), so i then put it on the rolling road to find out that it was putting out 132bhp thus finding out it has a boost problem. since this ive had it on v.a.g.com to find that it needs a mass air flow sensor and a lambda sensor, fitted these an now it has become very hesitant,hard to start from cold,exhaust smells and revs high when idling,using lots of fuel aswell. please help or any ideas its really annoying me now !

SOURCE: serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000

I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

Hi,if you want to make sure its your airflow meter,get a buddy with the same car and just test his in your car..(A.F.M is situated on the left,behind your battery is the filter box,the pipe connecting to the box is where it sits)

On my golf gti the turbo is squealing wen the boost kiks in and theres no power from the turbo what so ever, is it the bearings?


It could be the waste gate that controls the turbo boost. Check your lower inter-cooler tubing from the inter-cooler to the turbo just to double check and make sure it's all buttoned up. If it's the bearing, there would be lots of blue smoke from the tail pipe. Good luck and keep me posted.

19 tdi loss of power


I have a 1999 VW golf tdi with intermittent loss of power. The turbo will cut in for a few seconds, then die forcing you to change gear and get a small boost again. The turbo will not boost much past 2200 rpm. The cars computer has been plugged in at the garage and does not show any problems. Various people have said, replace turbo, air mass meter or just simply wash turbo filters in WD40. Can anyone help?

I want to put Turbo to my Golf GTI VR6 98', what changes my engine needs? it needs new pistons? it needs special gasket?..... which is better for it, Turbo or Supercharger?


the amount of money and time it would require to turn your N/A (naturally aspirated) into a forced induction car(turbocharger, or supercharger), you would require the buttom end to be built, fueling, exahust, ecu(computer) forged rods/pistons/ then the turbo or super charger, also alot more, if you go to vwvortex.com and click on the forums and look around, you can see the different setups people are running on their VW's AUDI's
