Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

Turbo I am just driving along at roughly 100 km hour, tried to pass a car notice I had nothing under the pedal. I didn't here the turbo kick in which is usually at around 2000 rpm. So after a while the engine light came on and notice on stop and go the turbo feels like stuck half open and close the power comes and go's. Just wondering if I should bring it in or take it a part to clean it. Is this worth it at all?

Hi,
If you have a variable geometry turbo it could indeed be that the vanes are stuck, but you don't need to take much apart to check this. As you were thinking about doing that I guess you are techy enough to be able to take this forward yourself now?

There are of course 1843 other things that can go wrong on a TDI so getting the fault codes would be a useful next step.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please delay the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Dont drive a car with the light flashing. A flashing check engine light means that something is really wrong and you can damage the engine if you drive it.

Turbo cuts out under normal driving


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.

this is just a rough guess, but i think it would be the battery or the alternator. Some part store have testers that they will check both for free.
