View Full Version : WOT, WOOT, WOOOOT.. Limp?

08-18-2015, 06:01 PM
Nothing has changed on my car recently, but now when I open it up after the 3rd or so time doing it the car goes into a terrible limp mode- after which it struggles HARD to get to even the 5lbs of stock boost.

Lifted the car, didn't see anything apparently: no ripped lines, no loose hoses, etc.

Sounds like you are overboosting, or running too lean. It sees that a few times, then turns off the fun-snail.

Instead of looking under the car, you should be looking at the codes with VCDS. It will have a very specific code set to tell you exactly why it's reigning in the boost.

Sorry forgot to include:

No check engine light, no errors. Reset if computer fixes the issue (until I do I again)

CEL on or not doesn't matter. Have you've checked the codes with VCDS? I would also check the long term fuel trims (block 032) after it is driven for a while without clearing the codes (don't go WOT).
