    Hi all HELP needed

    I have a 2007 seat leon tdi 170 fr the problem I have is when driving after 10mins or so when it’s warmed up when accelerating hard under load in 3rd from 2000rpm it pulls fine on boost and then when it get to 3000rpm it cuts out splutters for a split second then keeps holding back on off on off in 3rd change into 4th hard on the throttle holding back cutting out not boosting properly and the same in 5th
    I have had the glowPlug light and engine management light come once when I kept my foot down when it was cutting out I’ve also had it plugged into a vcds and no fault codes shown had a run on a dyno with car plugged in dpf was showing ok injectors showing ok so the garage didn’t no what was wrong either the car drives fine when not on boost

    Any Help would be appreciated

    Is it limp mode you are encountering I wonder? It could be something simple like a split/perished vacuum pipe leaking causing that to kick in, its not necessarily something expensive, just needs tracing by an honest mechanic. Hope you sort it.
