    Hi,

    Have a 1.8t 2000. Drives great, until you try and put your foot down past 4000 revs. Pulls great till then, then just acts like its red lining and has hit some sort of limiter?

    Any ideas?

    Plugged it in to diag at all?

    Thats the first step in all these sorts of problems.

    Sounds possibly like limp mode - can't be sure though

    Yeah been plugged in a few times for different reasons and nothings flagged up. Seems strange that the cars great below 4/5k and then just sort of stops.

    No doesn't seem like a missfire, just acts like I've reached the red line. Can see it on the boost gauge to, hits 0.5 and doesn't seem to want to go any further.

    I'll see if I can get some logs, thanks.
