Fill the filter with ATF, if no diesel fuel is handy. The T section with double o rings and a hair clip was removed, pour ATF in the resultant hole until it was full. Remove the clear line from the filter to the pump by disconnecting it at the filter. With a thin tube fill the line with ATF fluid until no bubbles remained. Reconnect the clear line to the filter. The car should start immediately.

Bleed the fuel line at the fuel rail in the engine compartment. On one end is a bleeder screw.

Blue smoke coming from exhaust.Think turbo is bad on my 2003 vw jetta 1.8 T


The bearings and seals in the turbo are going bad, so oil is getting burned with the fuel.

If it starts when pulled by other vehicle then Glow Plugs. othervise check the Ignition Key Contacts, might be worn out.

I neither of those then give me some more information. What exactly engine it is, maybe u know engine code.

when you checked the fuel line fuel flowed when u tried to start the engine while the fuel line was disconnected from intake? have you checked the injectors? are they spraying fine or there's no command.

Car won't start


It is self Priming. If it will not Pick up, You probably need to Replace the Fuel Pump.

2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter


It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.
