I have a 110 bhp passat (1999) 1.9 tdi (105k on the clock) I used to get a blank spot at 3100 revs ie the car would stutter and would not go any further on the rev counter (the problem was intermitent and you felt it most on 3rd gear). Today, I was driving down the M6 and it felt like I have lost power altogether. There was no turbo what so ever and the car would accelerate very, very slowly. This happened on all of the gears for about 80 miles. (It felt like some has stolen the turbo from the car). However, when i got to my destination and let the car rest for about an hour, I took it out for a drive. The car was perfect, I drove back from Birmingham (100 miles) and the car was perfect. Now I am very confused, any idea what the problem can be. Has anyone had this problem with their car. Any help would be appreciated.
