Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
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?
