Having problems with your 1999 Volkswagen Jetta ?
1999 volkswagon Jetta TDI no power
\015 I have a 1999 volkswagon jetta TDI (older style) the car only seems to reach a top speed of 120 kph and won't go any faster, recently I blew a turbo oil line and had it replaced, could this have something to do with it?\015
Sometimes the intakes will fill up with coke or carbon and basically block out air from getting to cylinders this can be cleaned out but is time consuming
[yes ]is the simple answer, a turbo starved of engine oil pressure even for a short period of time can blow the turbo; fit a new or a good second hand turbo.[hint]when testing a second turbo put your finger inside the turbo and spin it .a good turbo should spin quite easly for 3/4seconds with no noise.hope this helped you.adrian
