I Got a 96 passat with a with a new germen diesel with no waste gate on the turbo. it got 60,000 on it, it run good in 1st thru. 3th gears, 4th and 5 it loses power and on the hill it looses a lot of speed, needing to down shift to 4th or 3th. The timing belt looks good. We were going to see if the timing was set properly, but we didn't see a inspecting opening on the trans., as like the older vw diesels. I hope it not time electronically, hope there a mark on the front of the engine. Any of you guys have a thought on this. It would help. Thanks Jim

Most diesel engines of that vintage are electronically controlled. Is the turbo really spooling up in those high gears(whistling)? There still should be marks but for valve adjustments not for timing.

if it like a 86 diesel the valves were aligned on th e back of the cam win a file and paper to get it very tight. But there no hole on the traminision case to align top dead center.

I was thinking about this. Check to see if there is a cut or break in the intake from the turbo to the intake manifold, you would be losing the boost and lose power.
