    Crap Acceleration

    about 50% of the time my car has really crap accceleration, no torque or anything and foot to the floor is no different than halfway,

    it wont go over 55 in 3rd but if i go to 4th its slows down???

    the other half of the time its well nippy

    any ideas it feels like it just cant pull, like driving through treacle lol

    its a 1997 b5 a4 1.9tdi 116k on the clock

    Sounds like it might have a fault somewhere and its going into limp mode occasionally.

    If its up for a service I would get them to check it out.... If not, I could plug in and have a look at it if you are close?
