Hi

First clean the throttle body to eliminate it as a potential cause. Use some carb cleaner on a rag to remove as much of the deposits as you can but do not spray the carb cleaner directly into the throttle body itself. This oftem resolves issues such as this.

If this fails to resolve the issue - have the car scanned for fault codes as a problem like this is often associated with faulty sensors or a misfire in the engine.

You can have this done at AutoZone for free and this will give you a definite diagnostic pointer as to what is causing the problem.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.

1999 volkswagon Jetta TDI no power


[yes ]is the simple answer, a turbo starved of engine oil pressure even for a short period of time can blow the turbo; fit a new or a good second hand turbo.[hint]when testing a second turbo put your finger inside the turbo and spin it .a good turbo should spin quite easly for 3/4seconds with no noise.hope this helped you.adrian
