1999 TDDI 1.8 feels low on power

4 posts in this topic

Had this car a few weeks now and it feels quite low on power, had a mk1 punto 1.2 before this and that felt like it had more pull. Seems to really slow down on any kind of hill too. say im going 70 on a dual carriageway and hit a hill no amount of foot the the floor will keep it there and 5th gear is almost unusable because it slows down. anyone got any ideas? Oh also it has an error code of 9359 if i turn the key with the odometer reset held in.

I think that code relates to an ignition/electrical fault. It might be related to your lack of power, although you might another problem. Does it feel like the turbo is working?

Yeah it defiantly picks up alittle around 2000ish rpm. I've gave it to my girlfriends dad now to take a look at. Got fed up of searching for solutions, he's a mechanic. hopefully he will get to the bottom of it.

He sorted the problem, told me he rebuilt the cylinder head. Pulls like a train now when the turbo kicks in. loving it.
