Question about 1999 Volkswagen GTI
The car starts up and will tick over but wont rev past 2000rpm then cuts out also when you try to start it you can hear a hissing type sound which i gather is some kind of air leak which was also on my mot advisory note???????????????????
Possible in-line feul filter clogged up. / air leak possible from inlet manifold,spray WD40 on inlet manifold around ports connected to cylinder head whilst engine running,engine speed should increase whilst sucking WD40 through any gasket leakage.

Turbo is malfunctioning the turbo waste gate is not working take it to a shop right away, preferablly tow it so as not to damage the engine, if the exhaust gas's gets near the turbine bearings you will burn up the engine and the turbo cna explode like a hand granade and destrou your enging.
