    about 50% of the time my car has really **** 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

    lol, seriously though, do you reckon a service would do it good?

    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?
