Question about 2007 Volkswagen Golf
I have a Glof plus 2l tdi 140 when i am traveling in town at about 1500-1800 rpm and apply the throttle i get an engine missfire/ jerking untill i pull away . this is very annoying as it happens in built up areas at aboyt 30mph can anyone help. if the car was petrol i would think that there was a crack in the distributor cap or faulty leads
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
