As it should or as you thought it would ?

TSI is a technology that combines supercharging AND turbocharging

The supercharging will give power at low revs and the turbo at higher revs.

this means that there isn't somewhere where the power "kicks in".

Its power from idling to the red line. full stop.

If you think it isn't right take it to a VW dealer to have it checked out.

However, faulty turbos or superchargers make a car undriveable, so maybe you are not receivinbg as much as you had hoped.

Hi I have an 08 vw jetta 125 tsi the turbo doesn't


I would check the pressure blow off valve to see if it is stuck partially open. check hoses for holes or leaks where clamped. Also if you have a inter cooler for this turbo check it for cracks or leaks a pressure check of air to the cooler then spray with soapy solution to look for bubbles no bubbles after cooler good.

Turbo lags, or wont engage smoothly.


the golf is renowned for a 1/2 sec lag in the turbo (except for the diesel which is quicker and more powerful all round,2 secs faster from 30 to 60.)you could chip the car (volks tuning) and make it much better...if you had a clutch problem,the engine will spin,wheels would be stationary.....

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000


I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

Golf 4 tdi is smoking


Hi again,

It would seem that you posted twice, below is a copy of my reply to your other post here.

Assuming no combustion chamber or fuel delivery faults, most turbo diesel engines exhibits this. The delayed is referred to as turbo lag and the smoke is fuel not completely burned since the fuel system tends to be a little rich when the turbo has not attained boosting RPM. Other than to have your injectors cleaned/replaced, the injector pump re-calibrated and/or the turbo checked for leakage, nothing much could really be done. Alternatives are to use fuel additives, re-check of the computer's map/software and/or change of driving habits. The idea is not to floor the accelerator until the turbo has reached the designated RPM where it kicks in.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
