Where can one find vacuum line to replace the lines in my car? It seems simple enough to do myself, hopefully fix my stupid limp mode problem, and also doesn't seem like it would take too long. I just don't know where to find the vacuum line, what it's called, size, etc. Any help?

Take it to the dealer at your own risk... this is why I posted the write up so that you can diagnose yourself. You have a overboost condition with limp mode. It can be resolved if you follow our advice.

He'll fix it the right way for a lot less than the dealer (who probably won't...)

Vacuum Hose:
If you search this forum for 'mcmaster', you will find a post that says exactly what you need hose, and where to order it (mcmaster.com). I ordered a bunch from the mcmaster site, and it arrived very fast and worked great.

You don't even need to do a search. Look at the first post in this thread for a link to a list of hoses you need as well as the links to the McMaster Carr catalog to buy it.

Okay, need some opinions/thoughts.

Been having limp mode problems for a while, had the turbo rebuilt, still does it but not quite as often. Just went from Vancouver to Edmonton, and found it was still cutting out at high speeds/uphill etc. However, the car did not go into limp mode once when i left it in cruise control. Even at 130km/hr uphill, it never went off so long as it was in cruise.

Now, after spending the 13hrs thinking of why, im figuring it would be the N75, would it not? If it was a sticky turbo vane or leak in my vacuum lines, it would go into limp mode regardless of whether i was controlling the speed, or the computer (cruise), right? It would make sense that it wouldn't cut out in cruise, if the car itself was controlling the speed/boost pressure. At least that's what I am thinking. Any thoughts? I'm going to call around in the next day or so to see if I can find a new N75 solenoid in Edmonton, and change it out before I go home. Just kind of hoping someone can confirm what I'm thinking is, or should be, correct. Thanks for any info.

Tom

Tom, prior to buying a new N75, swap the EGR solenoid with the N75. EGR is just to the left of the N75 and see if that helps. I've never heard of a difference between cruise and your foot prior to this thread....interesting.

In the "Other Maintenance Issues" section, I'd recommend adding something about a clean air filter. I just bought a 2003 Jetta with 74000 miles, and the air filter and snow screen were *really really* dirty. I haven't had a limp mode since I cleaned the snow screen and put in a new air filter. The air intake is going to be cleaned as soon as I get the 80K maintenance finished.

It seems like the "Other Maintenance" section is secondary the way it's placed. Is that the intent? I'd almost think these should be the first things to check.

One other thing, after stopping and shutting off the car, I tapped the N75, just for kicks. And it made a large zzzz'ing sound, like a fan winding down, lasted about 3-4 seconds. Can't imagine thats a good sign of health either.

To test if the N75 is off or not, after switching with the EGR, can I drive the car to test it? What is the actual purpose of the EGR solenoid?

Okay, so while removing the N75 solenoid, i snapped off one of the vacuum pipes. Guess I'll go ahead and replace the solenoid afterall! ....damnit. Haha.

Oh well, kind of leaning towards that being my problem anyway, and a new one won't hurt the car. Only $89 here in Alberta, not bad.
