2.4 jtd suddden power loss
Driving up the road this afternoon came up behind a Passat tdi, nice long clear bit of road in front, decide to overtake, expecting the effortless manoeuvre as usual, halfway through, secs after putting the foot down, sudden power loss or probably more accurately no more power, flat engine note, I am on the wrong side of the road in line with the car I am overtaking and there is a now a car coming the other way, the boy in the Passat was looking understandably vexed, this is all happening in a fairly short space of time. I lifted my foot off the accelerrator a little then back down, everthing back to normal, lots of power, saved!
The rest of the way home I tried to replicate the fault, nothing happened, any ideas anyone?
its a 2002 156 2.4 jtd sportwagon (150 bhp)
