Hi I am the new member
Hello to everyone
In 2008 I bought a standard stick shift 2003 Jetta tdi and I am very satisfied with it. I also have an auto passat tdi wagon . Both of them are great cars but recently there are some problems with the passat, while driving at speed of 80km the engine looses power for a short moment, simutaniously the ESP light blinks on the dash board. This occurs intermitently. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this kind problem, please help me out if possible.

Does the esp have any control over the engine output? I wonder if one of the speed sensors is maybe playing up and causing the esp to cut the power. It's just a guess but maybe a possibility, it might be worth getting vagcom on it to check for any codes.:)

Any error codes if you get the car scanned?

Yes, ESP controls engine output. Maybe one of his ABS sensors or wiring is damaged and is making the car think one of the wheels is slipping. This is just a guess based off the esp light.
