This morning while driving to work I had the glow plug light start flashing and had a loss of power. It was 75*F on this fine July morning, started the car up, seemed a little odd that it turned over a few extra times before firing this morning, but it started fine. Back out of driveway, head down my road towards hwy and everything is fine. I go to pull out onto the hwy and there was an immediate loss of power and the glow plug light was flashing. Press the pedal and nothing. After playing with it a bit and can finally get it up to about 35 mph and that's about it. Decide that since Im only a mile or two from home to turn around. It seemed like the limp mode I had with my previous B5Passat. Press the pedal and the tach shows the rpms increasing but cant hear the engine to tell for sure and I shifted thru the gears and it can barely get out of its own way. I get home, kill it, wait 10 secs, it starts right up and I drive it the 50 miles to work with no issues.
- Warm morning, 75*F
- Half tank of fuel with about 300 miles on tank
- 2015 that I just bought in April with 62k miles now.
