Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
01 passat tdi 130 turbo isnt coming in until 3000rpm and warning light for glow plugs is coming on sometimes
This is the second Vw I have responded to in a fortnight.
Your lack of power I presume always happens when the glow plug light illuminates?
This is because it is causing over combustion to vaporised diesel, I would be looking in the Glow plug timer and relay, as for Turbo lag, I run a E34 6 cyl Bmw Diesel and the Turbo only kicks in around 2,500ish so maybe yours is a little tired or in need of a check up?
Hope this helped,
Please remember to rate my effort!
