Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
It sounds like you are getting very little vacuum assistance to your brake booster. I would check the main vacuum hose that runs to the brake booster from the inlet manifod as well as all those pesky little rubber vacuum hoses that are used for pollution control. They tend to go hard and split if they are over 8-10 years old, allowing air / vacuum leaks into the inlet manifold. One of these hoses probably also controls the operation of the turbo which inhibits its functioning .Check all hoses where they connect to the metal piping and replace as necessary. Any auto parts shop will stock the rubber hoses which can be bought by the foot.
