Hi Guys,

I'm new to this forum so first of all hello, I'm hoping some one can give me a clue to whats happening with my T5.

I bought the van 6 months ago with 40k on the clock and fsh, the last done supposedly when I bought it, it has run perfectly untill yesturday when it started to loose power when accellerating.
The service light came on last week so I'm now wondering wether it is due for a service or not, does the light come on after a certain time/mileage of when the van needs it?
I also hit a large puddle a couple of hours previous to the fault developing so wondered if this could have done anything?

Thanks for any advice.

Think you need to plug it into VAG-COM, as there could be many causes for loss of power, could be something silly like an inter cooler hose, right down to a sensor of some sort, without VAG-COM or a good diagnostic machine, it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.. But first thing to do is look for anything obvious like a split hose or a broken wire..

Good luck..
