Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Loss of power on hills and from dead stop.

I have a 2000 jetta tdi that has a loss of power while pulling a hill and from a dead stop. The check engine light is on and the codes that came up are,P0380(glow plug/heater circuit a)P1248(injection start control).Would any of these codes result in a loss of power? I replaced the mass air flow and the turbo a few years back. The car has about 125000miles on it.Any advice on this issue would be great.

    My first thought was the fuel filter but the check engine light worried me.I have replaced the fuel and air filter and now the car pulls hills like it should.Thank you for the advice.

Just install a new fuel filter and you should be fine.

Loss of power. Runs, motor sounds ok, top end is about 65, have to down shift to go up hills. Smokes when put under load. Replaced the fuel filter, not the problem.


Oil and carbon tend to build up, creating restrictions in the intake manifold. Symptoms will be loss of power (sometimes severe) and poor fuel economy.

You need to take a look at your fuel pump located in the fuel tank and can be reached by removing the back seat.

2002 jetta TDI- I try to accelerate up a hill and no power


Count the shifts. It sounds like you are going into overdrive and staying there. Overdrive is too long legged to pull most hills unless you are really flying.. good luck

Could need a tranny service. Be careful who you take it to. Special fluids and tools are required to do it. They could burn up the tranny if they do it wrong.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI WITH NO POWER


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.

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
