    1st problem :(

    I've just picked up my 53 plate 2.0tdi sport (83k on clock) and as i was driving the turbo seemed to stop working?
    It was as though a hose had come off (no boost) but this wasn't the case, it struggled to go up a slight incline as there was no power at all.
    This happened as soon as the low fuel beep/ light came on (can it be connected?)
    I stopped, switched ign off, left it for a minute and restarted and everything was back to normal?
    I know about limp mode (i've had 3 1.8turbos) but there was no warning light (ems) so not sure this was the case

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    help

    Cat converter? The catalyst can become displaced and choke the engine.

    if the cat was at fault wouldn't it throw up a warning light and wouldn't the problem be there all the time?
