Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Turbo cuts out under normal driving

The turbo on my Jetta cuts out and if I switch the car off and on again then it is O.K. The turbo was replaced just more than a year ago. The problem is worse in winter. Is there a setting that can be done so that it does not cut out? Sometimes while driving at 100 km/h it would happen.

That sounds like turbo overboost, ECU cutting the boost off. when you try and boost again feels like your hitting a brickwall, or when it happends feels like your hitting a brick wall...turning the car off resolves this.

Reset your ecu, disconnect the battery for 30seconds - 1minute.

2003 Jetta TDI.. accelerating on Hwy, i feel like the turbo stops working and the vehicle accelerates only on naturally asperated power. engine light comes on. I can turn off the car and restart it, and...


I have the same car/year and problem. My turbo first acted up 50,000 km ago. I was told it was the waste gate linkage that was sticking. The Mechanic lubed it and work it back and worth with a air pressure device. Worked well for 40,000 km's but goes into limp mode almost every day.

I am told it could be waste gate actuator, air flow sensor, a vacuum leak, or one other thing. If you just bought this car it probably had the problem for a while and that's why the person who had it before dumped the car.

Worse case is the turbo with waste gate assembly attached come as one pice will have to be replaced for $1,500.00

Ign switch removel 97 jetta


I had the same problem a couple of years ago. I googled it and found that I needed the ignition switch replaced. I had to take it to the dealer (I checked other places, but the dealer was the least expensive). It ended up costing me about $250, but there were instructions on the Internet for replacing the switch. I'm just not mechanical enough to try it, and some folks said it was a tough job. I googled 97 Jetta ignition switch replace and the instructions came up. I took the printouts to the dealer and told them: here's what's wrong. Of course they didn't believe me until they checked it out for themseleve. Grrr.
