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 have a 2000 golf tdi, and it could be your turbo booster or it your car's computer itself.

I would suspect vacuum leaks of faulty emission components.

Reduced power when driving Mk4 Golf TDI


how many miles has it done?is it remapped? we have had the same problem and done the same repair as above and the next stage for us is to remove the turbo and strip it down and clean the veins inside the turbo as these can stick and give a loss of power,this is on a 2002 gti tdi pd with +-130000miles and its remapped.my car is gt tdi 130bhp stock 140000miles no faults

Coil light and loss of power


The battery grounding ******** vw's periodically go bad and need replacement, I would suspect this to be the case.
It will corrode
in its casing, resulting in faulty electrical systems.

2000 golf tdi - suddenly lost power then struggled to get back up to 60mph - engine sounds loud and rattley. My husband says there was no oil in the engine- he has topped up with best oil and truned it...


Hi ...... It sounds as if the turbo bearings or seal has blown, white smoke is a sign ........ or your head gasket. Try taking compression readings across the engine and/or looking into the expansion bottle for evidence of oil (head gasket def'ly).
Let us know how you get on.

Clutch slipping m4 golf


Best check for this is to get the car around 30mph, put it in top gear, and floor the gas. If the clutch is going to slip, this is when it'll happen. If it slips, you'll need to replace it. If it doesn't, there's likely no issue with the clutch and you'll have to look elsewhere for the problems you're seeing.
