Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

1 Answer

My 2000 diesel turbo is having major issues with acceleration. I can get it up to about 65mph and then it just sits there. It is a turbo but has had 'no' turbo in a year. The second issue is once in awhile I get the blue flashing light that comes on and blinks. That has happened for about a year and a half and I was told it was fixed but it still happens mostly when it is cold out. What all do you think is wrong? I had the glow plugs replaced already and teh system flushed.

    I had the diagnostics checked it came back as suspect bad fuel pump. Does this make sense?

Have the fault memory checked for faults. Do you know if the diesel engine is a pump diesel with a variable vane turbo or does it have a VEP pump? If it is a pump diesel then I would check all vacuum pipes to ensure none have come apart. If they are ok, then I would check the boost pressure control valve. If this is working then you will need to check the vacuum valve and rod on the turbo and ensure it is operating correctly and not seizing up

the PCM may see the boost too low for load and RPM.
