SOURCE: tdi jetta is losing power on hills on freeway

MAP sensor. Look on Google to see what the readings should be when you test the circuits. Its real easy to check yourself, all you need is a multimeter. Classic syptom of a failing MAP sensor is power loss on inclines. Its the cheapest fis, failing that, there could be trouble with piston rings, or with the Impeller of the turbo being damaged. Good luck

SOURCE: 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI WITH NO POWER

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.

SOURCE: is a 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI diesel a non interference motor

Yes, it is. If you go to http://tdiclub.com/articles/ and look at the "TDI How To" section there is lots of info, and a step by step description of timing belt replacement.

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

SOURCE: Can you tell me how to open the petrol cap on a

it should not be locked. Make sure that all of the doors are unlocked the "deadbolt" type lock actuator will retract and allow you to open the gas door. If the lock has failed, then I believe that there is access to the lock actuator through the inner quarter panel. Good luck. Oh, if there is an owners manual...check that just to make sure.

SOURCE: distributor cap and spark plug leads order/layout?

The firing order is 1342. The cylinders are numbered from left to right 1234. Depending on wether it is a 16 valve engine, the distributor cap lead number one position is at the front on the left, if its a normal 8 valve engine , the distributor cap lead number one is at the front pointing straight at the front. So, moving anti clockwise, the next lead will be number 3, then 4 , then 2.

Probably time to get the injector pump rebuilt, it's dumping too much fuel into the engine. Or, something is clogging the airway. (sound deadening foam, don't laugh, it happened on my Volvo turbo)

You're in the TDI (diesel) solutions section so it uses glow plugs.
If it's a petrol engine 2.0L then it would be accessible above and below intake manifold using a swivel spark plug deep socket.

Count the shifts. It sounds like you are going into overdrive and staying there. Overdrive is too long legged to pull most hills unless you are really flying.. good luck

Losing power going over hill


well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.
