Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have a 2000 jetta tdi 1.9 l and on 3 different occasions, with no warning, i have lost almost all of my power while driving.There has been no warning and the glow plug light comes on and stays on- not flashing.I can get the car home by shifting from gear to gear without using the fuel pedel.If I use the fuel pedal power drops even further.Top speed is 55 klms.Help-I love the car but need help.

SOURCE: Glow Plugs
please do not try and change yourself i tried and one broke off in the head it cost me 1900 dollars to rebuild the head
it broke because the aluminum head and the fine threads on the glowplugs fused together just take it in and let the garage be responsable if anything happends

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck
