    Hi, new member and first time poster.

    My 08 plate Golf Mk5 diesel started playing up last week when the turbo seemed to just cut out part way down the motorway. It went into limp mode and while it still drives, it goes next to nowhere and really struggles at about 40mph up any sort of gradient. When I turn the engine off and back on again, the turbo comes back but only for a short while before dying again.

    I'd be happy to provide any more info you think is needed to diagnose this, but absolutely any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It's probably the turbo vanes sticking & causing overboost.

    But you do need a diagnosis with VCDS or similar diagnostics.

    Have a look on the VCDS owners map on here & see if there is someone nearby who would check it for you for beer money.

    Overboost, turbo rebuild time.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I would recommend Turbo Technics as a source for quality re-manufactured turbos.
