Hi,
I've just bought a lwb t4 tdi syncro. I'm wandering if its normal for these vans to struggle to go any faster than 70mph. Mine revs up to the red line in 1st, 2nd and 3rd but when I change into 4th and 5th it seems to stop at under 3000revs and only creeps very slowly up to 70mph. Is this normal or is it a turbo issue or is it restricted for some reason??? I put my foot to the floor but it just won't rev any higher.
Any advise would be great.
Cheers

Not normal for 2.5 tdi for sure that what I have, when I got mine it a bit sluggish and it turned out my waste gate was seized! Ok now, what engine,

Cheers for the reply. It's the 2.5 diesel. 2002 van. I'm glad it doesn't sound normal, was a bit of a depressing 7 hour drive home.
