    Hi. I was driving home last night when all of a sudden my car just bogged down and lost power, it was only for about a second. Then I came back or couple seconds a bogged down again. It did this a couple time in the space of a couple minutes and then was fine to drive again. Anyone got any ideas what it could be? It's a 2005 2.0 140 tdi.

    If anyone lives near and is able to plug a vagcom into the car it would be gratefully appreciated. But I'm afraid all I could pay you in is some cider and steak dinner. Lol.

    Many thanks

    Patrick

    Sorry. I'm in aldershot/ Southampton. I've checked the battery and the terminals are fine. These cars continue to run if you disconnect the battery after starting it anyway. Benefit of a diesel lol.

    And can't see any signs of water in diesel.

    It's got traction control but I was on a flat straight dry piece of road and the light never came on like it usually does if its activated.
