    Hi guys, I have a 2002 VW Caddy SDI and I'm getting this intermittent problem!
    1) Turn the key drive off and around as long as I like and all is fine!
    OR
    2) Turn the key and no throttle response apart from slightly higher revs and I go no where!

    Can anyone help with a diagnosis please?
