Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Intermittent power loss.

Hi

I have a 2004 VW LT35 TDi lwb van.
There is a problem with a loss of power. Downhill it is ok. but uphill it is as if there is no power , it really struggles. Even on straight it is not marvellous, very very slow, takes its time building the speed up, struggles to get to 50. On motorway with slight hill, it will go down to 25mph. I took it to an independent VW mechanic, they checked it on the diagnostics machine (its like a laptop)), and said everything is fine. They then advised me to change the airflowmass meter, they said that is the most likely reason. So I put a new BOSCH air flow mass meter on. Still there is no change. They are now saying that the turbo needs to be looked at. Does anybody know what i need?

Lack of power


Turbo failure is never normally intermittant so I doubt it is a turbo fault.

The wastegate relys on a signal from the ECU via the MAFS.

Mass Air Flow Sensors are very common to fail on VW TDi and this also fits in with your symptoms.

Kind regards

Loss of power, glow plug light flashes, cruise control intermittent.


Check for intake blockage (coking). May also be a bad turbo-charger actuator pod or something as easy as a Mass Airflow Meter.

19 tdi loss of power


I have a 1999 VW golf tdi with intermittent loss of power. The turbo will cut in for a few seconds, then die forcing you to change gear and get a small boost again. The turbo will not boost much past 2200 rpm. The cars computer has been plugged in at the garage and does not show any problems. Various people have said, replace turbo, air mass meter or just simply wash turbo filters in WD40. Can anyone help?
