Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

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.

2002 gmc 1500 4.8 engine- turn the key on everything comes on but engine just clicks.. then out of the clear blue sky it will turn over . had the batery checked and it was ok just 1 year old. n


Hi, I am a mechanic. As I understand you, It sounds to me like the solenoid on your starter is miss connecting. It will do as you say when you turn the key to the start position. sometimes it will just click every time you turn the key to start it will click. then out of the blue it will start. usually this is not so bad when the engine is warm. You can test the starter yourself to check it. You will need to remove it though. Don't forget to disconnect the battery first. Hope this helps

1992 Range Rover starts up runs fine but after warmed up and shut off by key won't start for at least 2 hrs. Rick Please help


sounds to me like the cat converter is stopped up. Usually the engine will die out after a short while though if it is clogged. Over time the pressure will release enough for the engine to start again. The coil could be getting hot and fails to spark, but again this should kill the engine after a short while. If you let the engine idle will it die on its own? more info if you can supply any would be great.

It takes about 8-10 times of trying to start up my 2000 mitsubishi galant in the morning(the first start of the day) but during the day when the car is in use and the engine is warm it starts up easily...


Three things might do this. You did'nt say what year model or engine size to the answer is'nt your car specific. The car does run with the check engine light out? If it's running with the light on, you can stop at an auto parts store and they can check to see why the light is on. The coolant temperture senser can make the engine contol computer (think) that the engine is warmer than is is and not shoot enough fuel to keep the engine running good as it's cold . The engine takes less fuel to run hot and theirfore it runs OK. the fuel filter or the fuel pump could not be letting enough fuel pressure to get to the motor and again as the engine warmes up it needs less fuel and runs OK. Sometimes peaple put high octane fuel in an engine that does'nt need it and the high octane fuel burns slower and when the engine is cold it doesn't make as much opresure so it's harder to keep running but as it warme the presures of combustion are higher and the engine runs just fine. If the oil weren't change don the regular time and the oil is old the engine compression might be a lot less than it would be with good oil and the engine may have to warm to have good compression tp run well. If this is the case the oil may need to be changed a few times to get it clean enough to run well.

99 hyundai accent starts sometimes. not battery


ok when the check engine light comes on that usually indicates a engine malfunction...what you can do is go to your local autozone and they can do an OBDII test for free..my bet says it is the cam or crank sensor.. DO NOT SHUT THE CAR OFF AT AUTOZONE..LOL

Starter won't disengage


You have a defective start, no 2 ways about it, and it may be hung up, which means there is no way that you will be able to start it or to disengage the starter. It will have to be towed, and as it is, the tow company can tow it.

Hard to start warm engine


Sounds like you have a problem with your fuel injectors, either they are working to much or not enough once they get warm....

Take it to a shop ant tell them you want the injectors tested.

Engine stops immediatly after starting


Sounds like faulty Crank position sensor. These tend to go out alot on Jeeps. Most of the time it will be running fine and then it will shut off like someone shut the key off. Hope this helps.
