Hi All,

Just found this forum as I'm looking for some help with regard to a problem that so far I've not been able to solve by visiting garages with diagnostic kit.
Essentially when the car is cold it starts fine but between 1500 and 2500 revs it sputters and has massively reduced power. The problem disappears when it warms up - typically within a couple of miles and I can also solve the problem using diesel additive (cleaner that also increases the cetane) but as soon as I run that tank through the problem reverts. Initially I thought it was a dodgy injector - but having taken it to a specialist in injectors they have said that they can't find anything wrong with them. I've also had the car serviced and air and fuel filters changed - neither of which did anything.
I've tried removing and cleaning the MAF sensor - but that didn't work (might try replacing it) but before I do I think I'm going to try an EGR clean...
Any tips would be much appreciated or if anyone else has experienced the problem and how you solved it I'd be mighty interested.

Many thanks,

Cooperman

Welcome to the forum.


Its nice to see you made an intro on your own. ;)

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company 6 months ago that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

We Are Live - Community Feedback

This has been talked about many times.

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

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

We don't have a Scirocco sub forum so post your problems in general.

Hi Keith,

Many thanks for the warm welcome - I'm not sure I know enough about the new forum let alone the old forum to take the poll - but it all looks relatively straight forward so far.

Many thanks,

Cooperman
