Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

I have a 200 VW TDI and it won't even turn over in the cold. Took the fuel lines off and blew them out, replaced the furl filter and added some 911 and no difference the next day. The check engine light is on and there is no oil pressure. Just changed the oil 2 days ago.

If the engine wont turn over i doubt its fuel starvation. I would be looking at flat battery of faulty starter/ ign switch.

2005 vw polo 1.9 tdi wont start


if it starts when you pour fuel in the intake.. then fuel is not reaching the tbi from the tank..you say you put a new fuel pump on this..did you bleed the fuel lines? if not do this because there is an airlock in those lines..either you need to open a fuel line at the tbi unit to bleed it all out.. or be looking at a clogged up fuel filter..

Hi I drive a 2006 Vw Transporter 2.8 TDI, the glow plug light


You've probably solved this by now, but just in case... it's your particulates filter clogging up and needs 'regeneration' by VW techs. They take it on the road and with the aid of a laptop on the pax seat, inject fuel into particulates filter and 'burn it out' it'll cost you 200 quid at a vw dealer.

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

I have a 2002 VW TDI with 140,000 miles, but engine was rebuilt after broken timing belt, and trans was replaced under warranty at 98,000 miles. My problem is that the engine cranks eight or nine times...


Hello, I have something that might help you. If you know where your fuel line goes into the engine. I would let it sit overnight and then take the line loose. Then hold the fuel line into a bucket and have someone turn on the key in the car. This should tell you how fast you are getting fuel up to your engine. Your problem sounds alot like its not getting gas up to the engine fast enough. I would check these things:

1. Fuel Filter
2. A bent or crimped gas line. (From Engine Rebuild)
3. You could even have a blockage in your tank ventilation. This would cause a vapor lock not allowing the fuel pump to work properly.

Outside of a fuel issue from your previouse history It could be still in your timing. If you find my information helpful please rate me and have a great weekend! :>)

#1 Do you have an faults recorded in the ECM like a check engine.
#2 Are you using synthetic oil 5W40 preferably Castrol?
#3 How old is your fuel filter?

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.
