    Question Turbo question

    Not sure where to post this but whilst coming home on the m11 this afternoon in the glorious sunshine i thought id stretch the cars legs, first time since i had it. so i did. after a few miles i slowed down to traffic speed, about 75ish... then i went to overtake a car and noticed the turbo wasnt coming in, so i slowed a little changed down to 4th and still no turbo, all the way home it was like it.

    when i got home, i left it running for a few mins and turned it off, left about 5mins and took it out and it was ok!

    its a turbo diesel and i confess im completely new to diesels and turbos, so can anyone help me out as to what happened?

    thanks in advance

    Sounds like a case of limp mode if such a thing exists on a diesel. Get it checked for codes (VAGCOM or equiv) and see if anything has come up. Without that its gonna be difficult to suggest what to look at next.
