Its a 2007 Polo 1.9Tdi 74kw. I see people talking about PD100 PD130 and the list goes on,

I just want to know what my PD is ? Any Help Welcome. :violin:

74 KW = 100 hp.
Pumpe Duse is the german for Unit injector what is how the vehicle injects fuel. So the type of engine is recognized by the method or type of injection it uses and the numbers equate to the output in horsepower.
so yours is PD100.

PD 130 is the 96 KW versions and usually have some red lettering in the badge.
