Hi folks my name is Scott and I own a 2003 VW Golf TDI. Shortly after I bought the vehicle the check engine light came on and the guy at the dealership said it was a turbo over boost. The symptoms are an overall loss of power and weak acceleration. I can barely keep it at highway speeds when going up hills (pedal is all the way to the floor). I've read up on this web site and the "limp mode" perfectly describes what's going on with the car. Any advice on how to proceed would be awesome. Thx

Maybe check the actuator and see if it's moving to easily, the spring can get a bit soft I think, the other thing would be the vanes sticking possibly, if you disconnect the actuator and see how freely the lever for the turbo moves, it shouldn't be restricted.:)
