Hi everyone !!

Cool that's handy to know, I need diagnostics done on my T4 as the (honest guy LOL:) who sold it to me didn't say it had no power on the motorway. Took it to a mates garage who found 6 faults up on the diagnostics, cleared them all and said to take it to a VW specialist.

Went to NG motors (in Splott) and they wanted £60 for the first hour and engine check then if it was the air flow meter (which they think it may be) it will be another £70. Is this a reasonable amount to pay? any suggestions ?
you can eliminate the MAF yourself by disconnecting it and going for a short drive. and you can get isopropyl alcohol contact cleaner spray from maplins for a couple of quid - useful for cleaning the element in the maf.

doing a bit of home spannering can save a few quid - and you can have the MAF off in minutes :)

Cheers cjm,

but I'm about as technical as a slug so I have taken it to Star garage in Cardiff, they have ruled out the air flow meter more tests needed. Could be the timing out, blockage in the exhaust or (and I hope it's not this !!!!!!!!!!!!) the turbo is knackered with a capital F. :gl
