New member first post (in the correct detection.. Sorry.)
Hoping someone with vast education in vag com vcds diagnostics could point me in the right direction.
Help me solve my limp mode? I have a 2001 Jetta TDI 1.9alh that's in limp mode. Originally I'm pretty sure it was because of the vanes being clogged on the turbo. I replaced it with a rebuilt vnt15 from Dutch Auto parts actuator moves as it should. Tried replacing the Maf sensor with a cheap one(I know I know...) Also tried replacing the n75 with s cheap one. I don't have a vag com but I do have obdeleven so I can get some readings.

Both n75 (the OEM and the aftermarket one) read 25% at idle (specs show it should read 45% at idle) when I accelerate it goes to a out 65-70% but then goes back down to 25 while still accelerating.

The MAF sensors bother the cheap and OEM one the read different than each other. OEM one reads 495 at idle cheap one reads 375 at idle. Same deal though. When I accelerate it goes up bout 600 or so but drops back down

The n18 valve is weird to me. I removed my egr so idk if that changes anything but When riding it's at 85% which is 11% over max spec. Then it jumps around from 5% 60% 76%

Injection quantity is strange also. Starts as low as .80 and goes as high as 20.80.

So what do you all think? I'm at a loss now. I can find more specs and numbers if you need. I just need the code.

I should also add the the car ran GREAT for the first month or so awesome power and sound from the turbo. The previous owner remove the vacuum reservoir and the n239 valve is just laying around still plugged in ( not needed because of the egr delete I suppose)

Welcome to the forum.

After being prompted. ;)

Read your other post again.

This is a new forum layout with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location or signature properly either

We Are Live - Community Feedback

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes but no comments.

Do you like the new forum features?
