Power loss
« on: February 18, 2014, 08:48:38 am »
Have recently replaced MAF with Bosch unit (expensive) and this totally restored power to the gal. However, gave just had the gearbox replaced and have immediately noticed slight loss if power again (sluggish to reach top revs). Is there anything that could have been knocked out of place during a gearbox change that could cause this?

Scan with VCDS lite to check for any boost issues you may have, also worth having a look around boost pipework for leaks.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.

Thanks! Checked the pipes and one was completely off and the others had frayed ends and were leaking. Have full power again :-))
