    I own a 99 golf tdi, I have a problem, when I start slowing down to come to a stop, the car judders, making a tick tick noise, and then when I stop it goes quiet again. I wondered if this could be a mass airflow problem.
    Another problem I have is when on a motorway, and I reach 70mph, I suddenly lose power, with acceleration drastically reduced, then when I pull off the motorway, the car performs really slowly.
    When leaving the car for half an hour or so, and restarting full power has returned again.
    I have new plugs and a fuel filter fitted but no change, also I have noticed that I can't hear the turbo whistling noise like I used too.
    Any help on either problem would be appreciated, thanks

    Sounds like the car has gone into "limp home" mode. Best idea would be to get it plugged onto a vagcom or suchlikes.

    You have said that the car has had new plugs... This cannot be the case, your car is a diesel!

    You have 2 different faults here - The first one with juddering when coming to a stop is cause by faulty software in the engine ECU, it's a known problem, unfortunalty the software is unable to be updated so a replacement is needed. The 2nd fault sounds like a turbo overboost condition. The ECU is shutting turbo control off to avoid damage to the engine, Do you find that if you cycle the ignition you have full power again?
