Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
I had a crash with my car and so I had to take the engine out for the body to be repaired.
As it seems, here in my country they don't have great knowledge in this car so I need opinions.
The moment I first took my car for a testdrive after the engine was on again I realized that both power and torque where missing.
Now I checked EGR working
Turbo in full load goes up to 1.2 bars
My mechanic said that the block work fine in idle rpm (not so sure)
Tubes are all that we could see in place
Air filter is checked and it's 7months old the most
Petrol filter the same although I'm willing to change it just for the idea
Setup is the same as before (rims,Suspension, etc)
VAG-COM software have been used but I didn't see every move of the mechanic.
In conclusion I'm desperate...
It sounds as if your air mass sensor has failed, it is quite normal after a crash that this unit fails, i dont know why but they do. not expensive from your vw dealer normally an exchange unit, does not normally show up a code, but can be seen not working on vag com. you also might want to check turbo pipes bent sqaused or blocked or even not fitted correctly. we have also had them collapsing. hope this helps
