Hi all I have a 52 Passat Diesel done 180,000 miles that went in to the garage with running on three cylinders and noisy. Now that is fixed and was due to the cam shaft worn. The problem that exists now is, it runs okay and sound good, but has very poor acceleration, and judders at 2000 revs. It will drive okay when cruising at 80 mph. Now the garage is stumped it has NO fault codes and had 2 types if compter checking, it has had a service as well new glow plugs, new fuel pipes the fuel filters all ok. new fuel pump, duel mass flywheel changed and it still has no acceleration. It drives like and old type diesel. This car should have 130 bhp, the borrowed nissan micro accelerates faster. Please help it been 5 weeks now and my friends want their car back. Debbie
when the car starts up cold (sitting all night) it starts, but the rev bounces from 1,000 to 500, and back up 2 times, if it doesnt go back up it dies out, and start it again, starts up fine....and now i have this acceleration problem where in 3rd gear at around 2300 rpms, it doesnt want to accelerate no matter how far i put the pedal down, so i downshift and the same thing in second, and then after a little while, it will run like a champ, what could be the problem? the car has been pretty well kept, it has all the service done by a vw dealership ever since it was first purchased, and now that i have it its causing problems, the car has sat for a little while before i got it from my friend, i havent finished paying it off from them either, i would like to keep the car, but if its gonna give me 2 many problems i should get rid of it, so can some one help me figure this out?
