Re: 200tq problems


I don't know if this will help in any way. I have 1990 200T which
is just called Turbo here in South Africa. When pushing "hard" at
about 3500 RPM I could feel the nose drop and the motor sag as if
a power loss was happening. About  a week ago I finally reached over
and checked the vacuum line coming out of the wastegate as it has
always had a bit  of cloth braiding missing. The pipe felt soft so
I replaced it with a piece of rubber fuel line hosing made by
Goodyear and also saw the old line was badly fraid at the wastegate
end. Since then I haven't had the hesitation at 3500 RPM. So perhaps
check the vacuum line on the wastegate.
