Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
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.
