I am not totally sure where it is on the Model you have But, You need to get the Waste Gate for the Turbo Emptied. This being Clogged will cause the Problem stated above.

Golf tdi 1.9 2002 , 296000kms. turbi fitted 8 months ago. now takes long to pick up speed but on flats is better. not enough power


installing a new turbo on a vehicle can cause increased "turbo lag" in the system as the new turbo is not tuned exactly right, or worn in the same as the engine. If you take your vehicle to a mechanic and ask him to tune your turbo you might find some relief (with many turbos this is possible, but not all). This is a delicate procedure and should be completed by a professional (tuning the turbo for the car includes setting the exact pressure increase in the engine -- especially with a diesel engine, over-pressurizing the system can cause the engine to fire improperly and cause massive damage). A mechanic will also be able to tell you if there is something else wrong with the vehicle (like a clogged fuel filter, weak fuel pump or something similar) that could be causing the problem.

Hello.I got my Volvo s40 2002.Its suppost to have a turbo build-in.But I cannot feel the difference,basically when is turbo starts working?Thanks!


The S 40 came with different size and spec engines and they were not all Turbo charged versions. The choice of engines available depends on which country you are in.

The turbocharger is driven by the engine's exhaust system and runs continuously but has minimal affect at low engine RPM. Unless the turbo has failed, you should feel the turbo effect kick in when you accelerate hard but there will be a brief lag .

If you have the turbo engine fitted to your 2002 model S40 you will have a " 1.9T " badge on the rear of your car under the S40 badge. The "T" designates Turbo. An engine designator badge without a "T" indicates it is not turbocharged.

The turbochargers on these S40 models will fail (especially if the car has done a lot of miles) so you should have your car examined if you feel the turbo is not functioning.

Hi my audi 1.9 tdi is losing power badley the acceliration totaly went its just had a new turbo so i dont think its the turbo. I,ve been out in the car a few times and the problem seems to come and go...


If somebody replaced the turbocharger with a new one, you must check up all command vacuum lines, the entire air intake system (air pressure pipes, intercooler, connections, EGR - throttle vane, ...), and also turbocharger and EGR command solenoid valves (three pieces). Could be also MAF sensor defective! Here you have the vacuum air pipes connection picture for Audi A4 1.9 TDI (AJM engine):

Turbo lag and lack of power


Hi,
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,
Paul 'W'
