Question about 2004 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Was driving along today and suddenly my golf tdi lost it's power. basically if I put my foot down, it takes the car a while to get to full speed. you notice it as the revs peak, there is no pull in the car. I had this same problem and the garage was I took it too was able to fix it quickly. However I can't remember what the problem was, and that garage is no longer in existence.

Get it vag,com`d this read all the faults (well most) But it sounds like it could be the MAF its a little black plug on the airbox pipe that tells the ECU how much air to fuel mix the car needs (common fault) for vw golfs
But you could still do with getting it diagosed with vag,com oh (vag com) is the programe needed to read the ecu
Hope that helps cj

I have this problem with my K Reg Audi 80 1.9 tdi...Driving along say 50mph in traffic, take foot from throttle due to traffic flow, put foot back on throttle and nothing happens unless you either let...


you car is fitted with a "no fuel"system,so when you take your foot off "no fuel" goes to the engine untill it reaches 1200 revs.then it will allow fuel to flow to keep tickover/smoothness.(its computer controlled)you need to get your car onto the diagnostic computer,(skoda/seat/vw/audi)so you have the codes/items that need to be sorted.The tdi engine was one of the first engines that VW computerised and it is very reliable/powerful,compared to the peugeot/citroen engine.(briefly,the fault is not just a switch/cable),

I have a t reg golf auto only done 30k but takes ages to change form second into third .


this is a computer controlled autobox.on a flat road put it into drive and without using the gas pedal let the car accelerate itself to max speed (about 35mph)then stop and do the same with only an inch of gas pedal.stop then gun it,put your foot hard down to the floor until you reach a speed that is just safe for the road conditions.
you have just reset the computer.....if you drive it gently for a few miles,you may feel a difference,if not then get it onto a diagnostic for a health check....

Hard shifting


after checking oil level in auto box(top line on dipstick in "P")try this,without using any gas at all,put into drive and let car reach max speed (about 30/35).then using half gas do the same, without moving your right foot,then if safe do the same, with full gas.as the gearbox is computer controlled, you have just reset the shift pattern back to its start position.The car will now change according to your driving style,(if multi user,it will take about 50m to read your style again)
if driven hard it will change hard.......
any help??

The turbo on my golf 1.9 tdi does not kick in on 4th gear


One of the thin vacuum pipes must be torn and the minute you go into higher/full boost the ECU doesn't get the requested pressure from the turbo and to protect the tubo from overboosting it puts the car into limp mode, The limp mode only resets when you switch the car off and back on again.

Trace all the thin 6mm vacuum pipes and you will find your leak.
