In your case the turbocharger is responsible for engine losing power.
The car goes in "limp home" mode!!!
After scan the EDC-15P engine control unit with a VAG or KTS -BOSCH diagnosis tool you will find this: Fault code: P1557-Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded
1. Engine stopped and ignition switch off. Check all pneumatic connections and hoses between turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control, boost-pressure control solenoid valve, vacuum reservoir, EGR control solenoid valve, intake-manifold flap solenoid valve, EGR valve with throttle - part of intake manifold. Also the vacuum connection between tandem pump and brake booster. If you find something wrong replace parts. If not go to step 2.
2. Extract the hose of the turbocharger actuator = pressure unit for boost-pressure control part of turbocharger. Instead of the original hose you must place another 1 meter long hose with the same inside diameter, and then you check to inspire yourself the air from the other one extremity of this hose. The mechanical connecting rod of the turbocharger actuator must have a smooth and whole motion. If you can do that with your mouth, then you must replace the boost-pressure control solenoid valve. If you can not reach this with your mouth, then you go to step 3.
3. This is the most difficult work. The problem is that the soot particles deposits inside the turbocharger plugging the variable nozzle geometry mechanism = adjustable vanes of the turbine. If the turbocharger actuator is not able to adjust the turbine vanes the charge air pressure increases too much and ECU (engine control unit) goes in "limp mode" = engine protection software. As a result the "limp home" mode engine still running until you turn the engine off (ignition switch off) and back on when the "limp mode" is deactivated, but the fault still remain in ECU memory!
4. You must be able to extract the turbo from the engine and then to disassemble the turbocharger, clean inside adjustable vanes mechanism and refit all.

2003 Jetta TDI.. accelerating on Hwy, i feel like the turbo stops working and the vehicle accelerates only on naturally asperated power. engine light comes on. I can turn off the car and restart it, and...


I have the same car/year and problem. My turbo first acted up 50,000 km ago. I was told it was the waste gate linkage that was sticking. The Mechanic lubed it and work it back and worth with a air pressure device. Worked well for 40,000 km's but goes into limp mode almost every day.

I am told it could be waste gate actuator, air flow sensor, a vacuum leak, or one other thing. If you just bought this car it probably had the problem for a while and that's why the person who had it before dumped the car.

Worse case is the turbo with waste gate assembly attached come as one pice will have to be replaced for $1,500.00

Audi A6 3.0 tdi Quattro 2005, glow plug light comes on, limp mode


16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

I can help you to fix this problem. "Fault code: P1557 - Turbo Boost pressure control exceeded"
But I need some info from your engine:
