Hi,
With TDI's the only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.

I know this won't fix your problem immediately, but it really is the only way to go. If you wish to post the list of fault codes here I'll be happy to offer an opinion then. Cheers, D

my wild guess is the 2.4L due to OBD2 status. only...you need to say..





my motto:
NO YEAR
NO MODEL
No engine size. (or transmission type A/T or M/T?, if that is in question)
NO HELP (or your joy)
No country , too , is a royal pain , all cars are different by country (laws)

No power at wide open throttle


be looking at emissions controls for leaking hoses open ports etc.. is timing good? out just a bit? look at the advance system under the rotor in the distributor..does this work freely? if not..spray with lubrican just enough to free it up..

Have a '95 Windstar. Was traveling about 45 mph today and the rpm gauge continued to stay where it was and the brakes barely stopped the car, while the engine continued to race as if still moving at 45...


There is more to the throttle then just the pedal. The cable at the other end by the throttle body could have been stuck or the throttle position sensor had an issue.

DEFINITE LURCH IN 1ST AND 2ND GEAR,


This may apply. ...............................

Carry out the adaptation drive cycle road test:

Note: This process must be carried out in normal mode (not sports mode). On a flat road, the transmission fluid temperature must be above 60° C (140° f) and below 100° C (212° f) (vehicle at normal operating temperature will ensure that the transmission fluid temperature is above 60° C (140° f)).
9. Accelerate from rest with light throttle (do not exceed the upper rev limit in appendix 1). 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 shifts must occur with engine speed between the following limits:.
Note: Do not move the accelerator pedal during shifts.

• 3.0L VIN ALL 1800 - 2000 rpm
• 4.2L N/A Prior VIN M96321 1450 - 1600 rpm
• 4.2L N/A From VIN M963221550 - 1700 rpm

10. Continue to accelerate gently to 50 mph (80 km/h) so that transmission shifts into 5th gear.
11. Go into overrun and let the transmission shift down into 4th gear without braking.
12. Brake gently to a standstill and hold footbrake on for at least 15 seconds.
13. This process should be carried out at least five times.

Engine rpm's increase without increaseing throttle,on start up. Not consistent. Goes back to normal quickly before driving. Happens ocasionally during driving. Fuel economy not affected.


if its petrol the throttle body may be in need of a clean and resetting or it may have a small air leak if its a diesel its worth checking the fuel filter they can get contaminated with oil if you find this the injector seals will also need replacing and the fuel tank and pipes cleaned out

your car is not suppose to idle at 500 rpm . 800 to 950 is the proper idle, unfortunately it is controlled by the computer. have you checked the idle speed control valve? also check the air flow meter
