  1. Ibiza weight loss = back breaking speed

    Hi guys, Just stripped my ibiza of all seats apart from the drivers one and all interior panels apart from the dash in order for it all to be skinned in leather. And what can i say? My car has turned from a really potent machine into something else all together. It's a whole lot faster...
  2. Power Loss and Overheating Leon Cupra

    At the end of a long trip last night in my Leon Cupra I noticed whilst driving at 90mph there seemed to be virtually no power in 5th and 6th and also the temperature gauge went up from the normal half way point to about 3/4. When dropping back down to about 80mph temperature returned to 1/2 way...
  3. Power loss between 5000 and 6000 rpm

    Last weekend I did an VAG-COM test iwth my Leon and it shows that the Airmass is falling between 5 en 6000 rpm. Boost was alright (1,54 Bar max). Horsepower: Boost 1: Boost 2 Atctual vs Spec: Boost 3: Actual vs Spec: The Airmass falling down to +/- 135 g/s. I thinks it's...

    Power Steering Loss

    I've done a search but not really found the same problem as mine. It appeared last night as I was pulling into my garage and I completely lost all assistance on the steering. Here's the funny part though, it only happens when turning left, turning to the right is still fully assisted at all...
  5. Loss of boost!

    I'm having an intermitent loss of boost problem at low revs, basically it feels like lots of lag and if you floor it then its ok. If you just give it half throttle its very jumpy, it feels like the boost is all over the place, you can hear it changing as well. I've replaced the N75 and the MAF...

    Power Loss??

    Last few days my car (Ibiza Cupra), has lost alot of power lower down the rev range. Usually if im sat still then foot down in 1st the wheels just light up, but now, the car just pulls away slowly :confused: Seems ok after about 3000rpm but up untill that is lame! Could this be MAF...
  7. Leon 1.8 20vt 180 loss of power

    I have a 2001 leon cupra 1.8t 180bhp, completely standard (for now!) and i'm losing power from 1000-4000rpm. I checked it with VAG-COM and a fault came up as low pressure between thottle control valve and turbo (DV). Does anyone know what this could be whether its a leaking hose or the...

  9. Loss of boost on Leon FR Diesel

    I was driving home last night, through the usually crawl of traffic and when I finally got on to a bit of open road (after about 10 mins) and put my foot down, the car was extremely sluggish. I was on the way to pickup my girlfriend and didn't want to keep her waiting so drove on. Once I had...

    sudden loss of power @ 70

    I was on the start of the motorway yesterday, I was going about 70 and on full throttle in 4th gear. All of a sudden the car stopped accelerating and from then on I had no acceleration in any gear, it was as if the turbo was not kicking in at all. I pulled over and disconnected the MAF, blew...
  11. Loss of power

    A few weeks ago I heard and felt an odd vibration. I couldn't find anything amiss so I thought maybe I had hit a rumble strip as I was driving through an area I don't know. Have noticed since though a slight but noticeable loss of power. My mpg has also fallen slightly. Any ideas folks...
  12. Is this clutch slip or just loss of traction?

    Just wanted to check if the symptoms i'm gonna describe is just traction loss? When i floor it second recently the revs shoot up but the traction control light flashes and due to icy roads i thought that this is traction loss. But i just read a thread on clutch slipping and my car is doing...

    Power Loss

    Hi Guys. I've got a 1998 Ibiza TDi 90 BHP. The car goes relly well but if i push it a bit and take it up to about 3750 revs it looses all power and wont accelerate again until I drop a gear and then its back. This seems really odd to me. Any one else had this problem?? :confused: It feels like...

    Power loss at 2-2.5K rpm

    I've got a completely standard TDi 130 Sport, and I'm getting really horrible power loss at between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm. It's most noticeable in 5th gear. Cruising at 60, accelerate to pull out and overtake and it's pulling like a train as usual right up until the needle gets past the 2,000...

  17. Toledo TDI Loss of Power

    Hi, First of all, I've had a look at the other thread about low power but the characteristics of my problem seem a bit different. We run a Toldeo TDI 110 W Reg. Going down the motorway today, suddenly the car feels like the brakes have come on. All the power has gone and the engine is...
