Slow sluggish accellaration

2001 vw jetta, over 100,000 miles, has fairly new timing belt, but accellerates very slow...gets aroung 20 mph and then takes a while to increase speed...what might be wrong??

    My 2001 VW Jetta TDI Diesel is doing the same thing. It usually runs smooth as can be but lately it can't hardly make it up small hills on the interstate. I go from 80 down to about 60 on hills that shouldn't slow me down.

    It has 170,000 on it and does need a tune-up. However, does the timing belt also have something to do with this problem?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks - Todd

When do you change timing belt on 2001 TDI Jetta. We have every 60,000, but service now just told me it has always been 105,000. Also we have a 2006 TDI Jetta and that timing belt is every 80,000 correct?


My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it either way.


The Serpentine Belt: visible on the outside of the Engine, should be replaced every 60,000 miles. The Timing Belt: not visible/inside the Engine, should be inspected/replaced every 100,000 miles.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Again my apologies...

My '97 Jetta 1.8L came without its "Service Manual" which is where VW apparently chooses to publish the maintenance schedule. When it was available from the dealer, it cost $4.95, so it can't be big. Do...


I don't know where you can find one I searched but could not find one. Oil changes ever 3000 miles. Spark plugs and air filters every 30,000 miles, Timing belt every 100,000 miles. Serpentine belt check for crackes on the groved side at every oil change, if any sign of wear change. Top off all fluids when oil changes are done.

glow plugs have absolutly nothing to do with the car not going over 20 mph. sorry, but you gotta keep on em. at a guess i would say it was due to them doing a t-belt and not setting the timing right somehow. but that's just a guess.... while I love my TDI, the service and parts at most VW dealers are at the bottom of the list

on that engine it is a belt newer vw's all have belts, and yes it is recomended at 100,000 miles. to do that job is a lot of work if i were to do it it be between $1,000.00 to $1,500.00
