    Hi Guys I have a 55 plate 2.0TDI Quattro S Line 140bhp on two occasions my car has lost most of its power and refuses to rev above 2000 Rpm, I dont get any warning lights appearing on the dash and it doesn't smoke or anything. If I pull over and switch the engine off, and then restart it again, the fault has gone and it runs fine again. The car has only covered 35,000 miles and is on its second turbo as the first one developed a fault and was replaced under warranty. Has anyone else experienced this problem? any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards Cooky

    seems like a electrical fault with the map sensor/thrust sensor replace this first will cost about £40-45. also while your replacing it look for any air leaks
