Low power after timing belt replaced

I had my timing belt replaced in my passat 1.8 turbo. After it dosnt seem that the turbo is working or its just not getting enough gas, it also redlines longer than usual if you really step on it. I accelerate but not like before. The dealer rechecked their timing marks, the tightness of the belts and they checked the turbo and replaced the waste gate valve, fuel filter, spark plugs. none of this has helped. The dealer is at a lost, they did mention that if something was wrong before the computer and transmission may have compensated for that, and now with the timing reset it may take some time to get back to it. I just don't know what to do.

    I had a slight loss of acceleration from stop before I replaced timing belt. After it was worse. No one can figure it out. My cam position sensor went out too.

Providing what the dealer said is true then you can disconnect your positive battery cable for 30 minutes. (PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE YOUR RADIO CODE BEFORE YOU DO THIS) and the computer will lose all its old memory and this should fix your problem. Good Luck

Loud rattling / buzzing noise from engine when cold not seconday air pump or air valve as already replaced.Timing belt,water pump and aux pullies all checked and ok.The colder the weather the louder the...


If the rattling changes with the revs of the engine, it might be that the valve compensators are either worn or not getting enough lubrication. 20V engines have quite small oil passages travelling to the head. They tend to clog up with gunk if the oil change is not frequent enough.

1997 Passat TDI has no acceleration


Check the mass airflow sensor, this is quite a common fault as they easily get contaminated with oil. This damages the delicate element inside. It is mounted between the air filter box and the hose down to the turbo, it is held in by torx headed bolts and has a multi plug that needs to be disconnected. Cleaning it with spray brake cleaner may work if not it needs to be replaced.

Timing Belt, Radiator, Water pump....


If the timing belt broke on a 1.8 turbo usually the valves in the head strike the pistons. You have to have the head removed to check the pistons. When did the radiator crack? Water pump isn't an expensive part but the rest with work hours and parts will be. Might be able to get a used engine but just make sure that belt and pump are replaced with new along with all the tensionners so the same doesn't happen. Also make sure the oil pressure is good. Sorry for the loss.
