Question about 2004 Volkswagen Golf

VW Golf 2004 2.0l GT TDI

Hi

Hi - i have just bought a 4 year old 2.0l gt tdi vw golf. On three occasions in the first day - once it has hit 70-80 miles an hour the car starts to lose power and whilst it keeps going it does not respond to pressing the accelerator and all the umph is gone. If you stop and turn the engine over it seems to reset itself. Many thanks in advance for you help.

We think it could be the engine management system - would recommend going to a reputable garage for it to be reprogrammed.

My VW golf TDi won't start since I changed my battery. It started fine for three days and now there is absolutely nothing there when I turn the key not even a click. Please help


1. Do all lights, accessories, central locking system etc in the car all operate normally.

2. Have you tested to see if the car starts when you try jump starting from another vehicle.

3. What warning lights were displaying on the vehicle a day or 2 before you had the problem.

4. Were you having the same starting problems with the old battery that you have just replaced.

Golf GT Tdi 115 - performance when warm.


you dont say what miles the car has done.but you should now be using semi synthetic 20/50 oil and try using a fuel additive(redex/wynns)to clean the injectors.if you are using oil it is possible that the engine has lost some of its compression due to ring/valve wear.did you know that to convert your engine to a 130/150bhp unit,you only need to change the ecu try"diesel tuning"website.....

2001 vw golf 1.9 gt tdi miss fire


if you have a pd engine and you say that it miss fires i would change the wire loom to the injectors if it persists the air flow meter is on the blink, has you car ever gone into a limp mode status were you couldn't rev then check your turbo ,this may sound strange but just had a 150bhp tdi which was remapped with a very simular problem
