2001 Jetta Diesel - engine starts then stops right away

Engine starts just long enough to disengage starter and stops. Usually starts again ok, but sometimes not. (usually when car is warm and has been shut down for a short time) On one oaccassion it seemed liked it would not start again at all. I checked the air control valve and it was in the proper position and working smoothly, eventually it caught and ran fine. I had it checked by the dealer and no codes came up on the computer nor could a problem be found. The same problem happened since but it started ok that time. ---- Also I'm looking for a Bentley serive manual.

Sounds like you have air getting into the fuel induction system. Change the fuel filter/water separator, the little drain valves at the bottom develop cracks that allow air into the fuel system. Diesels don't like that at all. Hope this helps.

My 2001 ford escape won't start . I checked all


Can\'t really help you with the no start problem without more information, but would advise you to stop using starting fluid right away. Starting fluid is hard on Diesel engines but they are made for much higher compression so will usually survive intermittent use of starting fluid. Gas engines just plain can\'t handle the much higher than normal compression that starting fluid produces which will destroy valves, piston rings, connecting rods, starters, ring gears on the transmission and head gaskets in short order. If you don\'t want to have to completely rebuild your gas engine don\'t use starting fluid on it ever!

THE SMOKE YOU HAD IS BECAUSE MANY TRIES TO START COLLECTED FUEL IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBERS AND SUDDENLY BURNT ON START. ANY WAY THE HESITATION OF CRANK START FOR LONG TIME CHECK WHETHER YOU DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL PUMP,FUEL FILTER OR COLD START SENSOR. CHECK YOUR SPARK PLUGS CLEAN THE THROTTLE BODY AND DO WITH SCANNER THE ADAPTATION.S

My diesel engine on my VW TDI Jetta is having a hard time turning over. It takes forever to start and seems to be getting worse.


Have someone replace your fuel filters ($$$) and put a bottle of "Lucas Diesel Additive" available at Advance Auto Parts $8
P.S. If you have PREMIUM Diesel available in your area (BP-Chevron) run that for a couple of tanks.
Good Luck

Engine problem.


Hi Michael,

The motor shut off and the engine light came on, you won’t start right away and you wait a couple of days and start it again, sounds like your engine was over heated and because it is too hot and the engine frozen.

There are several kinds of engines, water cooling ,oil cooling and air cooling.

Over heated can cause many different problems for the cars, you should check step by step yourself.

Water cooling engine; if you know, you can help somebody.


1. Check the radiator see if you have enough coolant
2. Check the oil see if you have enough oil
3. check the water pump see if the water pump works fine
4. check the thermostat see it is function right.


Suppose your radiator has water or coolant, leave your radiator cap open, start your engine, let it is running 10 to 15 minutes and wait it is getting hot and see the water in your radiator, if the water moves, that means your cooling system works fine, otherwise either the thermostat frozen or the water pump was broken.

You mentioned when you re-start your car, sounds like a diesel engine, please check the where the noise from, if the noise from the water pump area, that means you need to change the water pump. When you change the water pump, change the thermostat at the same time, because when the engine over heated, the thermostat maybe damaged.

Oil cooling engine, check the oil pump. If the noise from the oil pump, you need change it.


Good luck,

Frank
