Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Loss of power

I'll be driving my 2000 vw golf tdi and all the sudden it won't accelerate very well (lost alot of power.) If I turn off the motor (and coast) for a second the problem goes away- sometimes for the day, sometimes for just a moment. Only happens at highway speeds and in no certain gear, but only when accelerating.

you dont say what miles the car has done.but you should now be using semi synthetic 20/50 oil and try using a fuel additive(redex/wynns)to clean the injectors.if you are using oil it is possible that the engine has lost some of its compression due to ring/valve wear.did you know that to convert your engine to a 130/150bhp unit,you only need to change the ecu try"diesel tuning"website.....

We think it could be the engine management system - would recommend going to a reputable garage for it to be reprogrammed.

Vw golf gt tdi 115.


If you are losing water and it is not being forced out of the reservoir (unlikely) and ther is no sign of it dripping from the engine plumbing... then if your acceleration is starting to diminish... or you seem to not have as much power as usual, then it is probably a faulty cylinder head gasket... sorry.... hopefully not, as this is a bit of a job to fix.
