    Basically, the fuel pipe between the pump and fourth injector split, so i ran the car dry (1.9tdi). Got a lift from a mate, filled her with fuel again, cracked the 4 injectors and it lived. But ever since this, i've had no turbo, and man it's slow. Anyone got any heads up on what to check?

    Generally doubt it's sensors and or the turbo has gone, due to the fact that before this happened it was fine.

    Had a feeling, no eml showing. Short of diagniostics, is there any other way to get fault codes?
    I've done a 'paperclip' test on an older car..

    Sounds like it could be an AHU per PD (because your injectors are external) it will almost defo be limp mode, due to lack of fuel, have it code read with VCDS and that will help fix the fault

    sorry phil...but what? whats ahf? per pd? :/

    i ran a fault code for this got 17552 and a couple of others being thrown up. erased and drove the car to see if the same ones would come up, cause it was fine before it ran out of diesel.
    So i run it up the road and back, run fault codes again and get 17958

    i've read 17958 is a vac problem?
    17958 is the only code popping up, and if it is vac then that'd make alot of sense.

    could turbo just be ****ed, and if so would it just keep throwning up codes?
