Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have a 2000 jetta tdi with 130,000 miles. It has now lower gear power. My speed will reduce to 40 mph going up hills. Have any Ideas?
Find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.
