Polo tdi power loss

Post by citigolf1.4i » Tue Mar 15, 2011 9:44 pm

Hi guys

I have a 2007 polo tdi (96kw) ok so a few weeks ago my turbo packed up,after the turbo change was done along with cambelt & waterpump the car is not boosting correctly.My main problem is that if i drive the car hard (robot to robot ) the car has no power at all,if i stop switch off start up again its fine.Boost seems to be coming in at 2000+RPM,any help we be great.


Thank's

New or recon unit?

Take it back and let them check the errors and take it from there.
If it is recon unit they have 10-1 not adjusted waste gate/vains correct.

I've been back there almost everyday it's a new turbo the mechanic said it could be a faulty boost controller but he does not have a new one to test with, my point is only after the turbo change did this happen

Check all the vacuum pipes for leaks and if connected properly. Also check if maf sensor is plugged in properly. Don't take everything for granted, its your car so check everything out yourself after a service. Did they adjust the timing after changing the cambelt?

Rather buy a good quality part that will last then buying a cheap part that won't last.
