It can be the wheel Hub bearings. The rotors if warped will wear out pads early. Bad calipers are another possibility as well as a bad Master cylinder.

If the Hub bearings are bad your tires will have cupping. If the tires are okay the rotors are warping from contact with the pads. The pads won't release if the calipers are jamming OR the Master Cylinder is keeping pressure to the calipers.

You can get a pressure check done on the Master cylinder to see if the pressure is releasing when your foot is off the brake. If the pressure is releasing then the calipers are probably sticking. Make sure to use new brake hardware and a lubricate for the hardware when you assemble the calipers.

My 2006 2.0 tdi passat keeps going in limp mode and saying emissions workshop. Can anybody help


hi mate, my 55 plate passat did the same before major problems happened. first turbo went then the oil pressure light came on and the car went into limp mode. before its too late for you and a costly bill can you do the following.
check if your car has a recall for the injector problems which vw are replacing under warenty.
second thing the guy who repaired my turbo told me that these cares have a major fault which caused the turbo to go. the fault is the oil pump failure you must adress this issue as you can get a lot of info on the discussion forms.
my car started with the same problem as you have described the pd engines have a design fault with the oil pump and shaft. this is common causing your turbo to go then the car will start showing oil pressure low please stop engine. educate your self via the forms and act quickly befor you end up with massive bills.
i hope this has helped. trust me vw know about this design fault.you need to change your chain driven oil pump to the new gear driven system which vw have modified. all vag cars have the same problems be it audi skoda vw . my car had the same problem as you have said .started off with emissions then turbo failed thats when i started to investigate this problem . the pd engines was designed by some rookie at vw.

Hi there well done for a great job right my vw sharan 2001 tdi curently is not heating and the water from the engine is not hot when you touch on the pipes they are just warm however the heater gage...


First time you might check the thermostat operating.


Heed of antifreeze coolant temperature!!!


The thermostat location for 2001 VW Sharan 1.9 TDI is on back of the alternator at the bottom side of the bracket.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is NOT necessary to replace the alternator if you want to change the thermostat !!!

Thermostat checking:
1. Cold engine. Start up the engine and watch of the water temp indicator. After first value 60 Celsius Degree you still warm up the engine until the lifter (pointer) reach 80 C deg. (second mark after 60 C deg.). At this time you let engine running at idle speed and check with your hand the thermostat plastic housing and hose temperature in bottom left side of the engine. Heed of alternator driving belt and ventilator fan !!!
2. If the thermostat is good the hose must be cold until the water temp indicator reach almost 90 C deg.
3. The thermostat opening temperature is 87 C deg.
4. If the hose is already warm the thermostat is out of order.

Thermostat location, Part number: 044121113, in german - "Kuehlregle" (Price around $25):

Important note: Always replace the thermostat seal, position 7 in the above picture.

I have a Y plated A4 TDi the turbo seems to die after a while. starts off fine, within 20 minutes i lose power and the turbo dies


common problem with VNT turbo's fitted to audi's is sooting up of the variable nozzles of the turbo. this causes the the actuating ring inside the turbo to jam, the engine managment senses this and goes to emergency running mode, ie low power. You can clean turbo VNT housing if your a bit handy with the spanners but this involves removing unit from the car and cleaning housing, actuator ring and vanes on the exhaust side of the turbo with scotchbrite. You dont have to dismantle the impellor but you do still have to keep every thing really clean. Another cause of power loss is the air flow meter so you may want to check that out before taking your motor to bits.

how many miles has it done?is it remapped? we have had the same problem and done the same repair as above and the next stage for us is to remove the turbo and strip it down and clean the veins inside the turbo as these can stick and give a loss of power,this is on a 2002 gti tdi pd with +-130000miles and its remapped.my car is gt tdi 130bhp stock 140000miles no faults

Golf 4 tdi is smoking


Hi again,

It would seem that you posted twice, below is a copy of my reply to your other post here.

Assuming no combustion chamber or fuel delivery faults, most turbo diesel engines exhibits this. The delayed is referred to as turbo lag and the smoke is fuel not completely burned since the fuel system tends to be a little rich when the turbo has not attained boosting RPM. Other than to have your injectors cleaned/replaced, the injector pump re-calibrated and/or the turbo checked for leakage, nothing much could really be done. Alternatives are to use fuel additives, re-check of the computer's map/software and/or change of driving habits. The idea is not to floor the accelerator until the turbo has reached the designated RPM where it kicks in.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
