My old Girl (passat tdi 130 estate) has been running a bit rough in the last cpl of days.
Power seems ok
Fuel consumption has fallen by about 10mpg
The problem seems to be "Driveability"
If I can explain this in Brief
Your sitting on the motorway 8o mph and when you get upto what I call cruising, You cant seem to back the accelorater off!
It's like the peddle is an on/off switch 1mm down and the car drives,1mm off and the car slows down!
It's like it just wont cruise, also the car has lost its crisp feeling
There is NO excessive smoke or noise either..
I took it into the dealer yeaterday , and they said there are no "faults" stored in the memory.
I dont mind spending the money , but is there anyone on here (Midlands) based who could have a look at it?
I think It might be the Maf sensor but I dont want to go down the road of try this try that, as that is costly...
I want to get it chipped also, but I think I need to make sure it's Right first!
To give you an Idea of fuel, last Night I cruised back from the airport , before I set off, I set fuel trip, and normaly at about 70mph she is doing about 43 mpg last night that struggled to get over 34 Mpg
I know they are not that acurate but, there is an obviouse reading that shows a problem me thinks..
So is there anyone out there to help?
my number Is 07971 673899 names Keith
or can someone point me in the right direction, My local dealers are crap lol
