VW Golf 2.0 TD GTi

Before we used it the car would go into "limp mode" normally at the crucial point of overtaking and would have to pull over and restart the car for it to clear. Soon after this first started the car then became more and more sluggish over the weeks. We were recommended to have an EGR/Turbo clean done at a local garage to the tune of £250, but after googling I found the Turbo Diesel cleaner product and thought was worth a shot before forking out the £250.


We had originally planned to just do it on our driveway with car on axle stands but where the turbo is on our 2005 VW Golf 2.0 TD GTi this was impossible as couldn't get it high enough so luckily we were able to borrow a ramp at a friend's garage.

Once we got to the turbo we tried to attach the blanking card you supply, but there was no way to clamp it on, so had to resort to duct taping it on. It did the trick and nothing leaked out.

It was all very easy to use, the labelled cans meant you couldn't get it round the wrong way and the long spray hoses were a must as our turbo is in a very cramped area.


We took the car on a long run the day after we did it and you could see we were getting better MPG by the end of the trip (it's a trip we have done often so knew what it was previously) the sluggishness had gone and it was much more responsive!


It hasn't done the "limp mode" problem yet either, but that was a bit intermittent anyway so will have to see but am very happy it's cured the sluggishness in the meantime!

I would definitely recommend the product! Very good value for money!

The only very small downside was the blanking card not fitting, but was easily resolved with tape and you can't really be anymore "one size fits all" than you are, but was just something to bear in mind to have some tape handy.
