2000 Golf tdi - losing power and sounding loud

Hi - I bought the car 3 weeks ago and it was running great. Yesterday I was doing around 70-80mph when it suddenly lost power. It struggled to get back to 60mph and when I stopped the car then started it up again the engine sounded very loud and rattley. It drove ok for a bit but as I went to pull away in first, it felt as if I had to accelerate more and the car struggled for a little while - Again it fought its way up to 60pmh. Any ideas?

I would suspect vacuum leaks of faulty emission components.

Dashlights and radio flicker and battery light come on


It could be a couple things. Take it to a shop or a place like auto zone and have them test the alternator and the battery, its free :) If they both are testing as good, the next thing would be to check the battery terminals and connections. It simply is not getting the enough charge back to the battery for one reason or another.

You are not alone with this problem. I believe it may have something to do with the shift linkage, or even inside trany with synchros.
Is the shifter shifting ok in other gears, do you feel like you are pulling through mud to shift ?

Could be the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the fuel tank a few times while someone try's to start it, if it starts then the pump is on it's way out.
