Must be low on ATF, takes time to pressurize the TQ converter. It could also be a dirty filter that needs replacing. Or it need to re-learn the gas pedal position as in reference to idle pos and wide open throttle. Also needs to re-learn when the kick-down occurs. Hooking it to VAG 1551 scan tool or equivalent will significantly help determine whats going on with the transmission. That process of re-learning is called "Adaptation". When parts where either replaced, temporarily disconnected or simply cutting power from the battery by removing cable clamps from the poles will send the system back to default positions.

With the aid of a scan tool, you can program and set it up depending in country, climate and model of the vehicle.

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.

Hmmm perhaps your hitting the rev limiter, or the top speed limiter in the ECM.

Check the interlock switch at the brake pedal.

At 2500 - 3000 revs in top gear my golf turbo loses power


Sounds like the car is going into limp mode, and then resuming normal operation the next time you start it. This is probably due to an overboost or under boost situation. If this is the case, the car's computer can't effectively control the boost the turbo is producing, so it just "turns" the boost off. Ask the shop what the engine code was specifically, and then compare it to VW specific codes. ( google "VW OBD codes"). I'm betting the code is either P1556 (boost control negative deviation, underboost), or P1557 (boost control positive deviation, overboost). Proper diagnosis with VW specific software is half the battle. The rest is methodical troubleshooting by you or your shop so you don't replace parts that don't fix the problem. No offense intended, but it sounds like you need to bring your car to a shop that knows VW's. Sorry I'm not more helpful, but without more info, I'm just taking a guess. I've actually had this problem with my Tdi, and the fix was cleaning the intake manifold and a slight turbo actuator adjustment. But, in your case, several things could cause this which is why proper troubleshooting is important. Hope this helps.
