VW Golf 2.0 A4 1999 Will Start then shut-off after a couple of seconds

I replaced the fuel filter thinking that it was a fuel issue but the problem continues. My car will start up for about 2-6 seconds then lose power and turn off completly. No engine light comes on. it sounds like it just runs out of fuel. Problem is very consistent. Please help!!!

There will be no "carboraitor"s or Carburetors found in this model. It's fuel injected.

Seems like a fuel pressure issue or a spark missfire, check the fuel pump and filter, also check the spark plugs and leads to make sure everything is ok. also could be an injector issue.

It sounds like a fuel pump and/or fuel filter. Couple of reasons - if fuel filter is partially clogged fuel pump works twice as hard. Also this time of year with big temperature swings condensation (water) forms in fuel tank. If its a weak fuel pump, as pump gets old/tired it won't hold adequate pressure and drains back at night or shut down. Try the fuel filter first and run a good fuel cleaner through it prior to changing filter.

I have a 2000 vw golf and it will start and idle but when i hit the gas it cuts off what could it be i just replaced my fule filter that wasnt the prob

Do you have fuel pressure? If you havent checked you need to get a fuel pressure gauge and make sure you fuel pump doesnt fall flat when you increase demand for fuel.

I think fuel pumps have been getting more and more problematic over the past few years due to who is making them!

VW Golf MK3 wont start

fuel relay could be faulty. i think its number 30 or 167 in the fuse box under the driver side steering. it could also be the fuel pump or connector on the fuel pump under the black metal plate under your trunk carpet. you could try manually throwing in fuel into the intake to make sure its not your car's ecu or ignition system. if it starts and stays running it could be what took me a few months to discover after i had intermittent problems. there a small vacuum hose from the fifth injector on a 1997 mk3 gti (4 cylinder) that connects to the injector rail. i think its some kind of activation for the electronic injectors. my pipe was broken and i just cut it and my car hasnt been better since! i know this is an old question but i hope it helps someone out there!

1992 VW Golf Gas

Has the original fuel gone stale ?Check that the fuel is ok If you can disconnect fuel line at engine end and put hose into tin to see if pump is operating properly when ignition is on or cranking, having help is essential as monitoring the fuel going into the container and doing the ignition at the same time can be awkward.Also make sure the fuel filter is clear if no fuel comes out during previous test
